Deploying Jamf Connect Verify
After deploying Jamf Connect Login with Azure in one of my previous posts, it was about time to have a look at adding ‘Verify’ to the mix as well. And while there are plenty of different deployment scenarios possible, I’m going to keep this one short and simple.
Note: Just for clarity, Jamf Connect Login is used with Azure or Okta. Jamf Connect Verify is a tool used with Azure, while Jamf Connect Sync (Nomad Pro) is used with Okta.
In my discussion about deploying Jamf Connect Login, I repackaged the installer and added a post-install script for the authchanger and Notify, etc…

I could just add the Jamf Connect Verify to the prestage package, but Jamf Connect Verify can actually be used without Jamf Connect Login. So for this quick overview, I’ll just deploy Verify separately. If you are deploying Verify together with Login, just repackage it like I did in my previous post. If not, just deploy it with a Jamf Pro policy, or even a stand alone pre-stage package if you have nothing else to deploy in the prestage. For testing, you can just run the installer on your test machine, nothing special.
Integrate Azure AD in Jamf Pro as an LDAP service.
With the release of Jamf Connect w/ Azure integration, Jamf provides a tool (amongst other functionality) to create local user accounts on your Macs. This based on the identity of the user in Azure.
I noticed this latest Jamf Connect release triggers additional interest in integrating Azure as an LDAP server. Azure LDAP integration was on my blog to-do list for some time now, but other topics jumped ahead in my priority list. So to finally clear this from my to-do list, hereby a quick post on how to add Azure as an LDAP service in Jamf Pro.
I’ll try to keep this one as short as possible. Managing Azure AD and enabling the required services (LDAPs) is a bit beyond my scope here. Allow me to assume that you already configured it for other integrations outside Jamf Pro.

Nevertheless, let’s run through the different steps on a high level overview, and try to highlight some important notes. After this we’ll have a look at the default mapping settings in Jamf Pro.

For now I just wanted to help spreading this awesome news! Stay tuned for more. Exciting times ahead!
Scheduling Jamf Pro Database backups using the Server Tools
We are 1 week into 2019, and I was thinking about a new topic to kick this new year into action. I still have some pending tutorials in mind, but before diving into another long topic, what’s better to start a new year than to start with some good practices? You know, like those resolutions we tend to make following the festivities each year… One of those could be making backups all those things you highly value. Your Jamf Pro server for instance!
