Jamf Protect Setup

To get started with Jamf Protect, you need to do the following:

  1. Set up a Jamf Protect tenant.

  2. Add additional users to Jamf Protect.

Setting Up a Jamf Protect Tenant

  1. Work with your Jamf representative to create a Jamf Protect tenant.
  2. (Recommended) Set up authentication to your Jamf Protect tenant by creating a Jamf Protect app with your identity provider (IdP).
  3. Go to your Jamf Protect tenant URL, complete the end user license agreement, and log in.

Adding Users to Jamf Protect

You can add additional users to Jamf Protect. All users can log in to Jamf Protect with their Jamf ID during the evaluation to view data, configure settings, and download files.

  1. In Jamf Protect, click Administrative > Account
  2. Click the Users tab.
  3. Click Add User.
  4. In the Email field, enter the Email address of the user you want to add.
  5. Choose an existing identity provider from the Identity Provider pop-up menu. Verify "Jamf ID" or "None" has been selected as the Identity Provider.

    If your Jamf Protect tenant is not integrated to your organization's identity provider, only NONE or JamfID are available.

  6. (Optional) Choose one or more groups from the Groups pop-up menu.

    The user is assigned any roles associated with the groups.

  7. Choose one or more roles from the Roles pop-up menu to directly assign the user roles.
  8. (Optional) Select the Send Email Notifications checkbox to send the user emails about Jamf Protect alerts.
    Best Practice:
    You can also create users who only receive email notifications from Jamf Protect and do not have read or write access to the Jamf Protect web app. To create an email-only user, select the Send Email Notifications checkbox and make sure None is chosen from the Identity Provider pop-up menu.
  9. Click Save.

All added users can now log in to your Jamf Protect tenant.
