General Requirements

To use Jamf Connect, you need the following:
  • Computers with macOS 10.14 or later

  • A Jamf Connect license file and product download

    The license key is provided by your account manager. The same license key may be used for all Jamf Connect apps. For instructions on deploying the license, see Installation and Licensing.

  • A cloud identity provider (IdP)

  • A method to deploy Jamf Connect packages and files on computers. An MDM solution, such as Jamf Pro, is recommended.

FileVault Requirements

If you want to use Jamf Connect to enable FileVault on computers with macOS 10.15 or later, you also need to install a configuration profile with the Privacy Preferences Policy Control payload. For instructions, see the FileVault Enablement with Jamf Connect.

Network Requirements

If you are using a 802.1x RADIUS server for certificate-based authentication on your organization's network, you must make sure to distribute 802.1x settings at the computer-level. Jamf Connect does not support user-level PEAP authentication for RADIUS Wi-Fi at the login window.

The following cloud identity providers (IdPs) are supported by Jamf Connect.

    Google Cloud Identity does not currently support password syncing with Jamf Connect, and the menu bar app cannot be used.
