Configuring Settings with Jamf Pro

You can use Jamf Pro to create a computer configuration profile that configures Jamf Connect settings with the Applications & Custom Settings payload. This payload allows you to select Jamf Connect apps, automatically generate a PLIST file, and scope it to target computers.

Requirements

Note: If deployed during a PreStage Enrollment, your configuration profile must be signed.

Procedure

  1. In Jamf Pro, click Computers at the top of the page.

  2. Click Configuration Profiles.

  3. Click New.

  4. Use the General payload to configure basic settings, including the level at which to apply the profile and the distribution method. Only payloads and settings that apply to the selected level are displayed for the profile. To distribute the profile during enrollment using a computer PreStage enrollment, ensure you create a computer-level configuration profile.
