We have multiple Sites and Site Admins within a school and/or department and would like to have the ability to have multiple sites use the same VPP Account to assign/share purchased content.
Scenario: a principal or department head is tasked to make purchases in the apple store using a VPP Apple Id. Once the purchase is made, the content flows into the respective Jamf VPP Account based upon the VPP Apple ID token, however, only the site, assigned by the drop down menu in the VPP Account, can assign the content to their devices. Other sites within the school/department can not assign the VPP content to their respective devices until the JSS Admin changes the "Site" in the VPP Account.
The current recommendation is that each site have its own VPP account.
Issue: If there are 10 different sites (based upon classroom sets of devices), then the principal/department head would need to remember which VPP Apple ID to purchase content for. As well, the ability to transfer content licenses from site to site is non-existent so if Site A runs out of licenses and Site B has extra, the only way to get more licenses for Site A would be to purchase additional licenses.
If there was a check box rather than the current drop down menu, allowing multiple sites to use vpp content for the same VPP Account, then the JSS Admin would not have to intervene, saving both time and frustration for the site admins as well as save ever dwindling education funds.
This is also becoming more and more cumbersome as we move to device based app assignment where free apps are purchased via the volume purchasing program as well.
