Jamf Connect Logs

Login Window Logs and Debugging

You can collect logs from the Jamf Connect login window using the log command in Terminal. When capturing logs, you can filter on all logs from the Security Agent process, which runs all of the Jamf Connect loginwindow mechanisms.

Alternatively, you can filter with the com.jamf.connect.login subsystem. The most recent login on the computer is stored in the following location: /private/tmp/jamf_login.log

To debug the login process, use secure shell (SSH) to access the computer and execute any of the following commands:

Command

Output

log show --style compact --predicate 'subsystem == "com.jamf.connect.login"' --debug > ~/Desktop/JamfConnect.log

Outputs all historical logs to a file.

log show --style compact --predicate 'subsystem == "com.jamf.connect.login"' --debug --last 30m > ~/Desktop/JamfConnect.log

Output recent logs to a file. This example collects logs from the last 30 minutes.

log stream --style compact --predicate 'subsystem == "com.jamf.connect.login"' --debug

Streams current logs in Terminal

Note: Remote Login must be enabled on the computer to use SSH.

To stop logging, press control-C.
