  2. Click Blueprints.
  3. Click the Blueprint you want to edit, or create a new Blueprint. If creating a new Blueprint, add devices by clicking Devices.
  4. Click Lock Screen.
  5. (Optional) Add a message in the Message field.
  6. (Optional) Select the Include Asset Tag checkbox to display device asset tags on Lock screens.
  7. Click Save Changes.

Your Lock screen message and inclusion of a device's asset tag are applied to all supervised iPad and iPhone devices in the Blueprint. Each device's detail page displays the deployment status of the message and asset tag, as well as a preview of your message on the device's Lock Screen card.

If the Include Asset Tag checkbox was selected but no asset tag is defined in Jamf Now for the device, the Lock Screen card will alert you. You can add an asset tag on the device dashboard at any time. For more information about adding asset tags to devices, see Using Device Asset Tags.
