The following items were deprecated in a previous release:

  • Support for Internet Explorer 11Support for Internet Explorer 11 will be discontinued in an upcoming release.
  • Jamf ImagingJamf will stop distributing Jamf Imaging in an upcoming release. Apple does not recommend or support monolithic system imaging as an installation method because of recent improvements in macOS security, hardware, management, and deployment. Apple encourages IT administrators to convert from device imaging to Automated Device Enrollment.
  • Functionality to issue the Tomcat SSL/TLS certificate from Jamf Pro's built-in certificate authorityJamf Pro's functionality to issue the Tomcat SSL/TLS certificate from the JSS built-in certificate authority (CA) will be discontinued in a future release of Jamf Pro. The release version for this change has not been determined. Before this change occurs, it is recommended that all on-premise Jamf Pro instances leveraging this functionality switch to a publicly trusted third-party CA to issue the Tomcat SSL/TLS certificate. This will prevent the potential loss of MDM communication from Jamf Pro to enrolled devices. If needed, a Tomcat SSL/TLS server certificate for Jamf Pro may be issued from an internal certificate authority. The JSS built-in CA will maintain its current ability to manually issue server certificates to other servers.
  • Support ending for the Jamf Pro Server Installer for macOSSupport for using the Jamf Pro Installer for macOS will be discontinued in a future release (estimated removal date: March 2022). Mac computers with Apple silicon are not supported by the Jamf Pro Installer for macOS. If you want to migrate your Jamf Pro server from macOS to Jamf Cloud, contact Jamf Support via Jamf Account. If you want to keep your server on premise, you can migrate your Jamf Pro server from macOS to one of the following servers: Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Ubuntu, or Windows. For more information, see the

    Migrating to Another Server

    article.
  • Patch management software titlesSome Jamf patch management software titles have been deprecated and replaced with updated titles. These titles are each labeled as a legacy definition in Jamf Pro. Software titles marked as legacy definitions will continue to be updated as new versions become available; no action is required at this time.

  • Self Service for macOS 9.101.0 and earlierSelf Service for macOS 9.101.0 and earlier will no longer be available to install in a future release.
  • Login/logout hook settings for background actions and user actions

    The Perform login hook actions in background and Display status of login/logout hook actions to users checkboxes will be removed in a future release. These features are being removed because Apple has deprecated login/logout hook functionality and they recommend running login hook actions in the background. Once these features are removed from Jamf Pro, login hook actions will run in the background by default.

  • Logout policy trigger

    The "Logout" policy trigger will be removed in a future release. This feature is being removed because Apple has deprecated logout hook functionality.

  • Device-specific Limited Access settings

    The Computer Access Only and Mobile Device Access Only Limited Access settings will be removed in a future release. Jamf Pro web app instances with one of these settings configured will automatically be updated to the Computer and Mobile Device Access setting. Administrators will only be able to assign Full Access or Computer and Mobile Device Access privileges after the deprecation.

  • "Synced to Computer" advanced mobile device criteriaThe advanced mobile device search criteria "Synced to Computer" will be removed in an upcoming release.
  • Support for Windows Server 2012 R2Support for Windows Server 2012 R2 will be discontinued in a future release.

  • Webhook responses for ComputerPolicyFinished and ComputerCheckIn

These changes may break integrations that currently utilize these event types. For more information on specific changes and how you can adapt existing integrations to support the new response bodies, see Webhooks in the Jamf developer resources.

  • Supervise Devices and Make MDM Profile Mandatory settings in a Mobile Device PreStage enrollmentThe ability to supervise devices and require the user to install the MDM Profile during enrollment with a PreStage enrollment will be required and will be built-in functionality in a future release of Jamf Pro. As a result, these settings will be removed from the Jamf Pro user interface.

  • forceClassroomManagedClassroomScreenObservation key

    The forceClassroomManagedClassroomScreenObservation key will be removed from the Restrictions payload for mobile device configuration profiles in a future release. It will be replaced with the forceClassroomUnpromptedScreenObservation key.
