It would be nice if when you view a package on the JSS, it lists what policies that package is in.
I am sure there is another similar request that I have voted up, but I am voting this one up as well.
It also needs to list the Imaging Configurations, Patch Policies, and Jamf Remote Policies they are used in.
Likewise it needs to do this for ALL items like Printers, Scripts, Dock Items, etc.
I found a old script by @mm2270 that uses the Jamf API to do this. We used it to help clean up packages before we move to Jamf Cloud. Without that script it would have been a painfully tedious process to do this.
It’s crazy Jamf doesn’t have this capability to assist with cleaning up any number of things on Jamf Pro. A Smart/Static Computer/Mobile Device group report would be another one since when there are performance issues this is one of the first things Jamf Support checks.
@adhuston You mean, like every other object in Jamf Pro when you try and delete it (Server Infrastructure, Buildings, Departments, Users, etc., etc.)?!? Ludicrous!
+1 . Have had to create a variety of API scripts to perform these types of cleanup / analysis tasks. This would be great native functionality within Jamf Pro.
@seansb Well, you know I put soy sauce on my chicken fried rice the other day. I don't usually do that.
Kind of. I was going more for something like this:
Obviously this is a crude representation, but you get the gist of what I'm getting at. I have a very large number of policies that contain the same packages at times, so knowing what policies have that package in would be a pretty big benefit. Then I wouldn't have to go searching through our policy list to know which ones contain a package.
@adhuston +1, this feature is present to an extent with regards to attempts to delete other objects within Jamf Pro. The lack of consistency of this across all objects is frustrating. Thankfully, we have the API that we can rely on to implement functionality and reporting (@seansb) that Jamf seems oblivious to.
Are you sure that you want to delete this feature request?
You need to have a very good reason to do this.
