Jamf Jamf

Jamf Pro is a comprehensive management system for Apple macOS and iOS devices. With Jamf Pro, IT Technicians can proactively manage the entire lifecycle of Apple devices. This includes deploying and maintaining software, responding to security threats, distributing settings, and analyzing inventory data.

Creating a Jamf Connection

To create the connection you need:

  • A Jamf Pro user account to be used with the Blink integration
  • An API address
    • If your instance is hosted in Jamf's cloud: https://<your-instance-name>
    • If your instance is hosted on-premises: https://jamf.<your-instance-name>.com:8443

Obtaining the credentials

A guide on how to create a Jamf Pro user account can be found here.
It is highly recommended that this user will be created with a custom privilege set and only have the necessary permissions that Blink needs:

  • Mobile Devices: Read
  • Accounts: Read
