Change Management

Change Management allows you to track the changes that happen in Jamf Pro, such as the creation of a Jamf Pro user account. The Change Management settings in Jamf Pro allow you to log those changes to a log file (JAMFChangeManagement.log) on the Jamf Pro host server and log the changes to a syslog server.

The Change Management logs can also be viewed in Jamf Pro. The information displayed includes:

  • Date/time the change took place

  • Username of the administrator who made the change

  • Object type (such as a Jamf Pro user account)

  • Object name (such as the username of a Jamf Pro user account)

  • Action (such as “Created”)

  • Details about the change

In addition, you can view the changes to a specific object in that object’s history.

Note: The option to log changes to a log file or a syslog server is only available for on-premise environments. If your environment is hosted in Jamf Cloud, changes are automatically displayed in the Change Management settings and cannot be exported.

General Requirements

To log changes to a log file, the account used to run Tomcat must have write permissions for the directory where the JAMFChangeManagement.log file is located.
