Simple Volume Content Searches

A simple volume purchasing content search functions like a search engine, allowing you to quickly search the apps and books in Jamf Pro for a general range of results.

Volume purchasing content searches are based on the name of the app or book you are searching for and display the following information:

  • Content Name—Name of the app or book

  • Location—Volume purchasing location used to purchase the content

  • Content Type—Type of content

  • Total Content—Total content that has been purchased with the volume purchasing location

  • In Use—Number of apps or books assigned to computers, mobile devices, or users

  • Volume Assignments—Number of volume assignments that the content is associated with

As an alternative, you can create an advanced volume content search that uses detailed search criteria. Advanced volume content searches can be saved for later use. For more information, see Advanced Volume Content Searches.

Search Syntax

This section explains the syntax to use for search functions. In general, searches are not case-sensitive.

Note: The default search preference is “Exact Match”. For most items, the option can be changed to either “Starts with” or “Contains”. For more information about configuring account preferences, see Jamf Pro User Accounts and Groups.
