Cloud Services Connection

You can connect your Jamf Pro instance with available Jamf-hosted services by enabling the Cloud Services Connection.

Icon Service

The Icon Service is currently the only Jamf-hosted service available through the Cloud Services Connection. When you enable the Cloud Services Connection, your Jamf Pro instance is automatically connected to the Icon Service. After enabling the connection, new icons uploaded to Jamf Pro are stored in the Icon Service rather than in the Jamf Pro database. This removes the work of storing, moving, and displaying icons for items made available in Self Service and helps you save on database storage and memory usage.

Note: The Icon Service uses the following hosted data regions:

  • us-east-1

  • us-west-2

Enabling the Cloud Services Connection


To enable the Cloud Services Connection, you need a Jamf Nation account with a valid Jamf Pro subscription.

  5. Enter your Jamf Nation credentials.

  6. Click Save images/download/thumbnails/81531754/floppy-disk.png .

A message displays, reporting the success or failure of the connection. After you have successfully enabled the Cloud Services Connection, your environment is automatically connected to the Icon Service.
