Deploying Mac Packages

Deploying package files to computers is a powerful workflow. This is a fairly technical process, so reach out to our support team by emailing if you have any questions.

  • The Jamf Fundamentals plan is required to deploy packages. For more information, see Changing Your Service Plan.

  • Packages need to be signed and built as a distribution package. For more information, see Building and Signing Mac Packages. If you already have a PKG on your local computer, deploying an existing PKG with Jamf Now is easy.

  • Packages must be 20 GB or smaller.

  1. Log in to Jamf Now.
  2. Click Apps.
  3. Click Add an App.
  4. Click Upload Your App.
  5. Drag your custom .pkg file onto the upload page or click Browse to search for it on your computer.

    When the file has been uploaded, it will appear in your Apps page and is ready for deployment via a Blueprint.


You cannot uninstall Mac packages from computers with Jamf Now. To remove packaged apps from a Mac, we recommend contacting the app's developer to see if a package uninstaller exists for the specific packaged application. You can then upload that uninstaller in to Jamf Now and deploy it to the Mac to uninstall the app.
