Jamf Pro connector

This is a cloud connector.

The Jamf Pro connector gathers data about devices and software from Jamf Pro.

A Jamf connector has the following options:

  • Connector name: A name for the connector.
  • Connector server name: 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 for your instance of 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.
  • Username and Password. Credentials to access Jamf Pro.
  • 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.

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.
