Jamf Self Service for iOS allows you to distribute configuration profiles, apps, and books to mobile devices for users to install. You can use Jamf Pro to group configuration profiles, apps, and books in categories, which makes those items easier to locate in Self Service. Users tap Self Service to browse and install items using an interface similar to the App Store.
In addition, you can send notifications to mobile devices with Self Service installed. (For more information, see Sending a Mass Notification to Mobile Devices. Also, see the Creating a Link to Content in Jamf Self Service for iOS Knowledge Base article.)
If iBeacon monitoring is enabled in your enviroment, Self Service is the component that detects when a mobile device enters or exits an iBeacon region.
Jamf Self Service for iOS requires mobile devices with iOS 8 or later.
Note: To use Self Service on a device with iOS 11 or later, you must install Self Service 9.101.0 or later. Earlier versions of Self Service will not work on devices with iOS 11 or later.
To require or allow users to log in to Self Service, you need an LDAP server set up in Jamf Pro. (For more information, see Integrating with LDAP Directory Services.)
