Setting Up the JSS

The first time you connect to the Jamf Software Server (JSS), the JSS Setup Assistant guides you through the following setup tasks:

  • Accept the license agreement.

  • Enter your activation code.

  • Create your first JSS user account.

  • Enter your JSS URL.
    The JSS URL is the URL that client applications, computers, and mobile devices will connect to when communicating with the JSS.

After you complete the JSS Setup Assistant, you can click the setup tips that are displayed onscreen to start configuring commonly used settings.

You may also want to make changes to the following pre-configured settings to ensure they meet the needs of your organization. These settings are important because over time, they can significantly affect the size of your database and your levels of network traffic:

  • “Update Inventory” policy—Determines how often computers submit inventory to the JSS.
    For more information, see "Computer Inventory Collection" in the Casper Suite Administrator's

  • Recurring check-in frequency—Determines the interval at which computers check in with the JSS for available policies.
    For more information, see "Recurring Check-in Frequency" in the Casper Suite Administrator's Guide.

  • Mobile device inventory collection frequency—Determines how often mobile devices submit inventory to the JSS.
    For more information, see "Mobile Device Inventory Collection Settings" in the Casper Suite Administrator's Guide.
