Cloud Services Connection

You can automatically connect your Jamf Pro instance with available Jamf-hosted services by enabling the Cloud Services Connection. The following services are available:

  • Icon Service

  • Jamf Platform Integration Service

  • Title Editor

Icon Service

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

Jamf Platform Integration Service

When you enable the Cloud Services Connection, your Jamf Pro instance is automatically connected to the Jamf Platform Integration Service. After enabling the connection, Jamf Pro will allow you to complete a one-time registration process to integrate Jamf Protect with Jamf Pro. This allows you to download the latest version of the Jamf Protect package and configure scope for Jamf Protect plan configuration profiles directly from Jamf Pro.

Note: You must have a valid Jamf Protect subscription to use this integration.

If you have licenses for Jamf Connect, Jamf Pro will allow you to view and edit your configuration profiles with Jamf Connect settings from Settings > Jamf Applications > Jamf Connect. You can also configure Jamf Connect deployment and update settings for computers in the scope of those profiles.

Title Editor

When you enable the Cloud Services Connection, you can set up a Title Editor instance in Jamf Pro to create custom software titles, override existing patch definitions, and create custom patch definitions.

Note: Title Editor uses the us-east-1 hosted data region.
