Jamf Pro connector
This can be either a cloud or on-premises connector, depending on your Jamf Pro instance.
The Jamf Pro connector gathers data about devices and software from Jamf Pro.
For information about what data is imported and how it is mapped, see Mapping (below).
IMPORTANT: Before setting up this connector, you need to turn on an option in Jamf Pro that enables basic authentication for the API. Otherwise, the connector will not work as intended. Follow the procedure below to do so.
Log in to your Jamf tenant and click the settings icon.
Go to All Settings and click Jamf Pro User Accounts and Groups.
Click Password Policy, then click Edit.
Under Allow Basic Authentication for the Classic API, enable the Allow Basic authentication in addition to Bearer Token authentication option.
A Jamf Pro connector has the following options:
- Connector name: A name for the connector.
- Connector server name: For on-premises instances, this is the name of the local connector server that this connector is associated with. Each connector can only be associated with one connector server. If you added the connector to a specific connector server, this field may be populated for you. Otherwise, you can select the connector server from the list.
For cloud connectors, this server is the Cloud option on the Connector Servers page. If you already added the connector to the Cloud option, this field will be populated for you. Otherwise, select Cloud from the list.
- Jamf Pro URL or server name: The URL or server name for your instance of Jamf Pro.
- Username and Password: Credentials to access Jamf Pro.
- Device threshold: To limit the amount of data that is gathered for Neurons, set a threshold for a specific number of days. The connector will not include records unless the device has checked in or otherwise changed during that time.
- Repeats: How often the connector should gather data.
- Start time: The time of day the connector should start running. To minimize the impact on your network and applications, we recommend that connectors generally run at night or on weekends.
- Active: Whether the connector is active or not. While the connector is active, it runs according to the schedule you create. If you clear the check box, the connector is inactive and will not gather data until the check box is enabled again and the connector is saved.
For details on configuring or using connectors, see Setting up connectors.
