This guide explains how to set up Jamf Pro.

  1. Complete the Jamf Pro Setup Assistant

    The Setup Assistant guides you through the setup of a new instance of Jamf Pro.

  2. Create and Upload a Push Certificate to establish the Apple Push Notification service (APNs)

    APNs enables you to create a trusted relationship between your devices, Apple, and Jamf. APNs setup is required before you can enroll devices. To configure APNs, log in to Jamf Pro and click Push Certificates.

  3. Connect to Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager

    • Integrate with Automated Device Enrollment

      Automated Device Enrollment using Apple Business Manager or Apple School Manager allows you to automatically download Jamf Pro management settings to Apple devices immediately upon activation. To set up Automated Device Enrollment, log in to Jamf Pro and click Automated Device Enrollment.

    • Integrate with Apps and Books (Volume Purchasing)

      App distribution with Jamf Pro is a simple process when you integrate with volume purchasing (Apps and Books) in Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager. Apps and Books provides the best way for organizations to centrally purchase and deploy apps. When you purchase apps for managed distribution, your organization can assign apps to an employee's Apple ID or device while retaining ownership of the app. Jamf Pro requires a volume purchasing integration to connect to Apps and Books and deploy paid iPad or iPhone apps, or any Mac or Apple TV apps. To set up volume purchasing, log in to Jamf Pro and click Volume Purchasing.

  4. View the Jamf Pro Summary

    The Jamf Pro Summary is a custom report that can be useful for troubleshooting Jamf Pro issues, and for providing information to Jamf for purposes of support or license renewal.
