General Requirements

To use Jamf Connect, you need the following:
  • Computers with macOS 10.14.4 or later

  • A Jamf Connect license and product download

    The license and product download are available in your Jamf Account. For instructions, see Installation and Licensing.

  • A cloud identity provider (IdP)


  • A method to deploy Jamf Connect packages and files on computers. An MDM solution, such 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 your organization uses an 802.1x network, the authentication type must be compatible with the macOS login window to work with Jamf Connect. For example, a configuration profile for certificate-based authentication (such as EAP-TLS) must be installed at the computer-level.

Note:

User-level authentication to an 802.1x network (such as EAP-PEAP and EAP-TTLS) is not supported at the macOS login window with Jamf Connect. For more information about connecting to enterprise networks on macOS, see Connecting Apple devices to 802.1x networks in Apple Platform Deployment.

For more information about configuring enterprise networks with Jamf Pro, see the Implementing 802.1X Authentication Using Jamf Pro technical paper
