About Jamf Pro

Use cases the adapter solves

Jamf Pro is a powerful endpoint management solution that provides a robust inventory of our managed Apple devices in Axonius. Even more importantly, by combining Jamf Pro with network/infrastructure data coming from additional adapters, we can identify unmanaged or even rogue devices on the network.

Data retrieved by Jamf Pro

Axonius will collect common device information such as hostname, IPs, MAC address, and serial number. It will also collect information unique to Jamf such as device policies, profiles, and groups. The adapter can be configured to collect additional information, such as user data and even mobile devices.

Enforcements

With the Jamf Pro adapter configured, Axonius can add devices to Jamf Pro computer groups directly in the Enforcement Center.

Parameters

  1. Jamf Domain (required) - The hostname of the Jamf Pro server. This field format is 'https://[instance].jamfcloud.com'.
  2. Username and Password (required) - The credentials for a user account that has the Required Permissions to fetch assets via the API.
  3. HTTP Proxy and HTTPS Proxy (optional) - A proxy to use when connecting to the value supplied in Jamf Domain.
  4. Tenant Tag (optional) - Specify a tag name to tag all devices fetched from this adapter connection.
