Jamf Self Service for iOS

The Jamf Self Service for iOS settings allow you to do the following:

  • Install or uninstall Self Service on managed mobile devices.

  • Require or allow users to log in to Self Service with an LDAP directory account or Jamf Pro user account.
    To require or allow users to log in using an LDAP account or Jamf Pro user account, you must have an LDAP server set up in Jamf Pro or you must create a Jamf Pro user account for that user.

  • Display in-house app updates in Self Service.

The Self Service app can be automatically installed on all managed mobile devices with iOS 7 or later except Apple TV devices and personally owned devices.

Starting with Self Service 10.10.1, you can manually install the Self Service app on personally owned devices with iOS 13 or later, or iPadOS 13 or later that were enrolled using User Enrollment.

Note: If you do not want users to be prompted to enter an Apple ID when Self Service is being installed on their device, you must distribute Self Service using device-based volume assignment. For more information, see Content Distribution Methods in Jamf Pro.
