The Jamf Push Proxy enables communication between the Jamf Pro server and devices with Jamf Self Service installed. This communication allows you to send Notification Center notifications to computers and mobile devices with Self Service installed.
Jamf Pro requires a valid proxy server token to authenticate to the Jamf Push Proxy. An assistant in Jamf Pro guides you through the process to request a new proxy server token from the Jamf Authorization Server and upload it to Jamf Pro. The following diagram illustrates the communication between the Jamf Push Proxy and the Apple Push Notification service (APNs), Jamf Pro, and devices in your environment:
