New year, new Jamf Pro!
With new product lines and major enhancements to Jamf Pro, 2019 was a banner year for Jamf and our customers. Just a few days into 2020, we’re excited to already be introducing a new version of Jamf Pro that will improve the enrollment experience for your end users — and add powerful new functionality for administrators.
Top Three Features in Jamf Pro 10.18
Integrate Jamf Pro & Jamf Connect
With a full technical integration, the market’s leading solutions for device and access management has never been smoother! We’re thrilled to unveil integration of Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect.
This integration is significant for anyone wanting to streamline management of Pro and Connect while supercharging the experience for end users.
You can configure Jamf Connect settings within Jamf Pro from the redesigned Application & Custom Settings menu. This change allows you to easily integrate and control Jamf Connect in Jamf Pro; no need to change applications in the middle of your workflow.

Native Office 365 management
To reduce the burden of managing Office 365 at scale, we’re launching a new payload that will let you configure Office 365 within Jamf Pro. Find it in the newly redesigned “Application & Custom Settings” menu.
Before Jamf Pro 10.18, managing Office 365 involved manually building a .plist file — a time-consuming workflow that demanded a fairly strong technical background. Jamf Pro 10.18 eliminates those barriers by streamlining the configuration process. What used to require a manually-created .plist file is now available in Jamf Pro’s user interface.

Three years ago Jamf and Microsoft announced an industry-leading partnership that integrated Jamf Pro and Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly Microsoft Intune). Since then, we have continued to expand on that integration while also looking for new ways to bring our products closer together.
One way we can help empower administrators that oversee Jamf Pro and Azure is with the new Cloud Connector. This tool will greatly simplify the configuration process of integrating the two tools. It also opens the door for multiple Jamf Pro instances to connect to a single Azure tenant.
We know your best work depends on using the most efficient management platform available. That’s why we are continuing to invest in Jamf Pro’s architecture. We’ve optimized the application table in the database; you’ll see a significant reduction in the total size and number of writes to the table.
