Self Service Notifications Setting

The Self Service Notifications setting allows you to configure whether or not users receive notifications when new items are added to Self Service.

When Self Service notifications are enabled:

  • A “Notifications” page is available in Self Service that allows the user to view a list of notifications for items that have been added to Self Service. The user can click to install any item in the list.

  • When the Self Service icon is in the Dock, the icon displays a red badge with a number to indicate how many new items have been added to Self Service since the user last viewed the “Notifications” page.

  • Optional, item-specific notification settings are available in the JSS when adding or editing items that are made available in Self Service. These settings allow you to add a notification for the item to Notification Center in OS X (including in banners or alerts), and to specify subject and/or message text to display in Self Service and Notification Center.

For more information, see Self Service User Experience on Computers.


To use Self Service notifications, you need:

  • To display badges on the Self Service icon in the Dock, computers with OS X v10.6–v10.11

  • To display notifications in Notification Center, computers with OS X v10.8–v10.11
