Installing Self Service on Computers

There are two ways to install Self Service on managed computers. You can install Self Service automatically on all managed computers using the Self Service settings in the JAMF Software Server (JSS), or you can install Self Service using a policy. Installing Self Service using a policy gives you more control over the installation.

Installing Self Service Automatically

  1. Log in to the JSS with a web browser.

  2. In the top-right corner of the page, click Settings images/download/thumbnails/12322302/Settings_icon.png .

  3. Click Computer Management.
    On a smartphone or iPod touch, this option is in the pop-up menu.

  4. Click Self Service images/download/thumbnails/12322302/Self_Service_C.png .

  5. Click Edit.

  6. Select the Install Automatically checkbox.

  7. (Optional) Configure the installation location for Self Service.

  8. Click Save.
    Self Service is installed on all managed computers the next time they check in with the JSS. It is also installed on computers as they are newly enrolled.

Installing Self Service Using a Policy

This method involves the following steps:

  1. Download a copy of Self Service from the JSS.

  2. Package Self Service using Composer or a third-party package building tool.

  3. Deploy Self Service using a policy.
