Licensing

Jamf Connect Verify requires a valid license to be deployed with the application. Your Jamf account manager will provide a license key configuration profile, which can be deployed as either a preference key or a file in the Jamf Connect Verify application support folders.

The order of precedence for license discovery is the following:

  1. Jamf Connect Verify preferences

  2. A .jamfconnectlicense file in /Library/Application Support/com.jamf.connect.verify

  3. A .jamfconnectlicense file in ~/Library/Application Support/com.jamf.connect.verify

Note: To store the license in the preferences configuration profile, you must convert the license file to base64 format, and then use the LicenseFile key in your configuration profile.
