Deployment Integration with Jamf Pro

The Jamf Connect depoyment integration in Jamf Pro allows you to automatically deploy the Jamf Connect package to computers in the scope of computer configuration profiles with Jamf Connect settings.

You can configure the following:

  • View all computer configuration profiles

    View all computer configuration profiles with Jamf Connect settings in a single location (Settings > Jamf Applications > Jamf Connect). Jamf Pro automatically detects and displays any configuration profile with settings written to a preference domain starting with com.jamf.connect.

  • Deploy Jamf Connect

    Deploy a specific version of Jamf Connect to computers in the scope of a configuration profile. This allows you to complete an initial deployment of Jamf Connect to target computers or to manage subsequent updates without enabling automatic updates.

  • Configure automatic updates

    Configure automatic updates for computers in the scope of a Jamf Connect configuration profile. You can configure Jamf Pro to automatically deploy minor updates (e.g., 1.0.0 to 1.1.0), maintenance updates (e.g., 1.0.0 to 1.0.1), or both.

  • Receive Notifications

    Receive notifications in Jamf Pro when a new Jamf Connect version is available.

Keep the following in mind when using this integration:

  • If a computer is in the scope of multiple configuration profiles, such as separate configuration profiles for the login window and menu bar app, Jamf Pro uses the most proactive update type for computers in scope of both profiles.

  • You cannot configure automatic updates to complete major updates (e.g., 1.19.3 to 2.0.0 or later). To complete a major upgrade for Jamf Connect, use a policy.

  • This feature cannot be used to downgrade the Jamf Connect version on computers.
