Add/Remove computer to static group as part of a policy

Posted: 2/24/14 at 4:22 PM by tuinte Last Response: Today at 8:22 AM by emilh

In place of throwing down dummy markers to trick the JSS into moving machines into various smart groups and then running postinstall scripts to get rid of the markers, any chance we could have an "Add to Static Group X" option when setting a policy? And, inversely, a remove option?

Show any policies that are scoped when viewing a group.

When viewing groups, it would be great if the JSS showed any policies that are scoped to them.

Also a warning if deleting a group that has a policy scoped to it would be great. It would make it much easier to find and delete orphaned smart groups used for patch and software deployment.

Allow the Self Service application to display a badge (a-la Mail.app or iCal.app) displaying the number of available updates. In addition to or in the place of "Featured", add the ability to show the most recently added applications.

You can now notify users when new items are added to Self Service for OS X by displaying badges, in-app notifications, and custom messages in Notification Center.

Allow Admin to View JSS As Certain Users

Posted: 2/26/15 at 1:54 PM by Eisiminger Last Response: 5/22/15 at 8:28 PM by jreinstedler

I'm constantly adjusting peoples rights in the JSS. It would be really nice to be able to view the JSS as a certain user in order to see it like what their user would see. This way, I could adjust accessibility, and make sure they have all the rights they need to complete whatever tasks I need them to.

Display Scripts Like Policies

Posted: 5/22/15 at 12:12 PM by rcram

In my organization we use a large number of scripts, these scripts already have Categories assigned to them. It would be great if we could view the scripts grouped into categories with the same type of expansion layout currently available when viewing policies.

Organization of Smart Groups

Organization of Smart groups would be helpful. We use a lot of smart groups and have had to use different symbols as you can see in the image, to help group them. If they could be grouped liked profiles are that would be a big help.

Smart group membership list be hyperlinks.

To really help with troubleshooting a specific device or iPad; if the list of Smart Groups be a hyperlink to that smart group's web URL. Then you could open that smart group URL easily in another tab or window. This would allow the user to keep the web page open for the device and tweak a smart group easily.

Client Config profiles list be actual Links back to the profile itself

Add third-part apps to Dock configuration profile

Posted: 5/21/15 at 1:26 PM by timlings Last Response: 5/22/15 at 5:08 AM by timlings

Having just started using JSS, I was a bit surprised that you can't add third-party apps to the configuration profile dock settings. This seems a bit crazy! Especially as it is possible to add them to the dock profile in Apple's Profile Manager.

Could this be added?


Enable Screen Sharing by default on Yosemite

Posted: 5/21/15 at 10:51 AM by dgreening Last Response: 5/21/15 at 10:12 PM by mm2270

Ever since the release of Yosemite Casper Remote's ability to screen share with user acceptance prompt has been broken. We know that Apple changed the security settings for this in Yosemite, and that unless screen sharing is explicitly turned on in Sharing, Remote is unable to connect.

This is a key feature of Remote for our support staff, and we (and many others) need this functionality restored. JAMF, please look into this and provide us either with a way for screen sharing to be turned on by default by the JAMF agent, or for a built in way to manage screen sharing's settings via the JSS. People have had little success scripting around this, and we need an official solution.
