User Approved MDM Enrolment

User Approved MDM can now be managed with Jamf Pro. User Approved MDM is required for certain performance and security enhancements, like managing kernel extensions.

There are a number of ways in which a computer can be enrolled with Jamf Pro to achieve a User Approved MDM status. These include:

  • Enrolment in MDM prior to being upgraded to macOS 10.13.4

  • Enrolment via Apple’s Device Enrolment Program (DEP) using a Pre-Stage enrolment

  • Enrolment via user-initiated enrolment with an MDM profile (new in Jamf Pro 10.3.0)

User-Initiated Enrolment with an MDM Profile

User-initiated enrolment is one of the methods that result in a User Approved MDM status for eligible computers. Starting with Jamf Pro 10.3.0, users will be prompted to download either an MDM profile or Quick-Add package during user-initiated enrolment based on the version of macOS on their computer.

Computer Inventory Reporting Capabilities

User Approved MDM and DEP Enrolment

You can now view the statuses for the following attributes in the General category of a computer’s inventory information:

  • User Approved Enrolment (enrolment in MDM)

  • Enrolled via DEP

This information is collected and displayed for macOS 10.13.2 or later only.

Security

You can now view statuses for the following attributes in the Local User Account category of a computer’s inventory information:

  • Minimum Number of Complex Characters

  • Maximum Passcode Age

  • Password History

Smart Device Groups and Advanced Mobile Device Search Enhancements

Smart device groups and advanced mobile device searches now contain the ability to match certain criteria against a regular expression.

To use this feature in Jamf Pro, navigate to Devices > Smart Device Groups for a smart device group search or Devices > Search Inventory for an advanced mobile device search. Navigate to the Criteria tab, where you can now choose “matches regex” and “does not match regex” as an operator.

Microsoft Intune Integration Enhancements

  • An Azure administrator can now open the consent URL for the Jamf Native macOS Connector app to be added to your Azure AD tenant via the Microsoft Intune Integration settings. The Jamf Native macOS Connector app allows each registered computer to connect to Azure Active Directory to collect its device identifier.
