Sites

Sites are components that Jamf Pro administrators can create to determine which objects (for example, computers, mobile devices, or apps) Jamf Pro users can view and manage. Sites and the objects within sites do not have to be organized based on physical location. For example, a Jamf Pro administrator in a school system could create sites for K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 and then delegate control of each site to a specific Jamf Pro user.

Sites are only necessary when full Jamf Pro administrators need to allow specific users to manage a subset of objects. If all Jamf Pro users should have access to all objects, do not configure sites.

When a user logs in to a Jamf Pro user account with site access, the user can view and edit only the objects within that site. If the user has access to multiple sites, a menu is displayed at the top of the page, allowing the user to switch between sites.
