It is possible to enable automatic synchronization for certain features in Jamf School. These are disabled by default and will need to be enabled.

It is possible to manually enable automatic sync for Apple School Manager and UserSync (LDAP), this is done in their respective configurations:

Synchronization information (Manual sync)
You can synchronize using the ‘Sync now’ button on your dashboard. This button does the following things:
If you have enabled VPP, it will synchronize all VPP applications and users.
If you have enabled DEP, it will synchronize all DEP devices and creating any missing DEP placeholders
If you have enabled user synchronization through LDAP, it will synchronize all users with the remote service
If you have enabled Apple School Manager, it will synchronize all classes and users with Apple School Manager
So, for example, if you have assigned new DEP devices to Jamf School in the DEP portal or Apple School Manager, you should press this button once to retrieve these.
