Computer Reporting Capabilities

In Jamf Pro 10.25.2, macOS 11 is reported in inventory as macOS version 11.x.x, which differs from the value reported in Jamf Pro 10.25.1 or earlier. This may impact workflows (e.g., scoping) that use smart groups that include operating system related criteria. To ensure these workflows are not broken, consider the following:

  1. In Jamf Pro, create a new group with the version 11.x.x as criteria.

  2. If this group is used for scoping, add both the new and old groups to the scope.

  3. As counts normalize in the new smart group, the old group can be removed.

Use a similar approach for other workflows that may be affected (e.g., searches).
