Manual Sync Information

You can synchronize using the Sync now button on your dashboard. This button does the following things:

  • If you have enabled volume purchasing, it will synchronize all volume purchasing applications and users.

  • If you have enabled Automated Device Enrollment, it will synchronize all Automated Device Enrollment devices and creating any missing Automated Device Enrollment 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

For example, if you have assigned new Automated Device Enrollment devices to Jamf School in the Automated Device Enrollment portal or Apple School Manager, you should click this button once to retrieve these.
