Enrolling a Mac Without Using Open Enrollment


Ensure the Mac does not have a Management profile already installed. Navigate to System Preferences > Profiles to check for an installed Management profile. If one already exists, you must delete the profile before enrolling.

  1. On the device you wish to enroll, log in to Jamf Now.
  2. Click Devices.
  3. Click Enroll This Device.
  4. Fill out the information in the Enroll This Device pop-up window.
  5. Enter a name, select a Blueprint, and an email address (if asked).
  6. When complete, click Download Configuration Profile to continue.
  7. When the configuration profile is downloaded, open System Preferences and navigate to Profiles. To install the Jamf Now Profile, click Install.
  8. Click Continue to proceed with the install process.
  9. Click Continue to verify you want to enroll the device.
  10. Click Install and then enter the administrator username and password for the Mac.

    Installing a Management profile while one is already installed on a Mac will result in a failed enrollment, and require erasing the Mac and reinstalling macOS. If that happens, contact Jamf Support for assistance.

    Your Jamf Now profile is now installed.
