Jamf Self Service for macOS URL Schemes

URL schemes provide a way to directly reference resources within Jamf Self Service for macOS. You can configure URL schemes to do the following actions in Self Service:

  • Install an item made available in Self Service

  • Direct users to the description of an item made available in Self Service

  • Direct users to specific Self Service categories

  • Direct users to the History or Notifications tabs

  • Direct users to the Compliance Remediation page

Once configured, you can provide the URL schemes to your users (e.g., via email or a webpage). Clicking the URL scheme on a computer prompts Self Service to open.

You can create as many URL schemes as needed using the templates in the table below:

Install item

Install an item by replacing "<content_type>" with the type of item (policy, app, configprofile, or ebook) and replace "<content_id>" with the item ID found in the item URL in Jamf Pro. Users may need to log in to Self Service in order to complete the installation. This is not available for patch policies.

Note: The URL for an item is also available on the Self Service tab of that item. You can copy the item URL from Jamf Pro by clicking the Clipboard images/download/attachments/81936477/Screen_Shot_2017-11-10_at_2.58.12_PM.png button.
