Integrate Azure LDAP in Jamf Pro

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.

Jamf acquired Zuludesk!

Jamf Doubles Down in Education, Acquiring ZuluDesk, a Leading Apple Education Technology Solution

Yes, you read that right! Zuludesk is now part of the Jamf family!

Exiting news because, where until recently Jamf and Zuludesk were competitors (read: more specifically in the world of Education), forces have now been combined!

At this moment, I don’t have any additional information to share outside the public press release but I’m sure this acquisition and combined forces will bring an exciting new future for the world of macOS and iOS management!

For now I just wanted to help spreading this awesome news! Stay tuned for more. Exciting times ahead!

Jamf Connect Login with Azure

There we go! Jamf launched Jamf Connect Login and Jamf Connect Verify with Azure integration: Jamf Connect Azure

Also, Nomad Pro has been rebranded to Jamf Connect Sync (Okta only).

My goal is to do a couple of blog post on the above products, but combining them in one big post would make this post a bit too long. Hence, let’s start with Jamf Connect Login and Azure integration. And this will already be one of those longer posts… ☕️☕️☕️

In one of my previous post I discussed Nomad Login+ Okta. This is now part of Jamf Connect, as depending the configuration the tool can be used for both Okta as Azure. I do have Jamf Connect Login with Okta on my ‘blog to-do list’ in order to go through the changes and discuss how to deploy it.

I’ll also leave Jamf Connect Verify for another time as it requires an additional installation (not included in the Jamf Connect installer).

Jamf Connect Notify (previously DEPNotify) is however part of Jamf Connect, so let’s do that today as well.

So the goal for today’s post:

  • Deploy Jamf Connect
  • Integrate it with Azure
  • Launch Notify during the Jamf Connect Login process.

JumpCloud as LDAP provider in JamfCloud (JamfPro)

Following the default Active Directory mappings, and freeIPA, let’s have a look at another way of adding LDAP integration to Jamf Pro: Jumpcloud.com

Just for the record, before going any further: Jamf, Jamf Pro, JamfCloud and now… a blogpost about JumpCloud? Don’t get confused, JumpCloud is not a Jamf product 🙂 . It’s a 3rd party Directory-as-a-service provider.

As it’s not my intention to give any advise on what 3rd party tool or solution you should use, I’d like to invite you to have a look at their website and see if the provided services are a good match for your environment and deployment needs.

However, my goal here is to “quickly” run through the steps to integrate it in JamfCloud. Also, for those who don’t have a JumpCloud account yet, good news: you get 10 user licences for free, forever and no credit card needed!

Once your Jump Cloud account is up and running, let’s have a look at how to integrate in Jamf Pro, including the mistakes I made initially.
