Retry button for failed configuration profiles

Under Review
Posted: by davidacland Last Response: by isaacnelson

As these fail to deploy quite often, a button to retry would be great.

The current process to retry applying a config profile is a bit drastic.

Policy Execution 'Once Per Computer, If Successful'

Under Review
Posted: by brent.buckner Last Response: by nathan.perkins

Set policy to run once per computer when the script exit code is equivalent to a success.

For instance, if a large package fails to download successfully, and triggers the policy to fail, it should not count as the "once per computer" execution.

Not sure if this already a feature request but it would be handy and convenient to just click and have a remote session with that machine. Sorry if this is a dup!

Cheers!

Implement a Bug reporting and tracking system on JAMF Nation

Implemented
Posted: by spalmer Last Response: by gachowski

I would like to see JAMF implement a system similar to Apple's https://bugreport.apple.com where I can log in and see the bugs I reported and their Defect Number. It would need to improve on Apple's system in some areas, but some of the key points are:

1) Access could be limited to the primary contact for an account, but I would like to see something more like Open Radar, http://openradar.appspot.com/, where others can see some basic info that would allow them to vote up and comment on a bug if they are experiencing the same issue. This would also help JAMF prioritize bugs.
2) This would allow tracking the progress of the bug so people don't need to keep bothering JAMF support or their account reps for the status of bugs.
3) This would allow JAMF to create a bug reporting form that ensures specific pieces of information needed for a proper bug report. For example Casper version, rank from critical to non-critical, exact application affected (ex. jamf binary, jss, Recon, etc.), steps to reproduce, etc.
4) This would give internal JAMF programmers and the person that originally reported the bug a more standard and consistent way of communicating regarding a specific bug.

While Jamf is focused on the overall quality and scalability of Jamf Pro, product issues are a reality with any piece of software. We have heard loud and clear that customers want better visibility here.

As a result, Jamf has introduced a new feature of Jamf Nation that provides customers with visibility to known issues in Jamf Pro. Our goal is to provide customers better awareness of known issues that may impact your management workflows for two reasons: 1. We want to make sure you aren’t spending valuable time troubleshooting known issues. 2. We want to make it easier for our customers to create cases associated with known issues so that we can better prioritize the most impacting issues within Jamf Pro.

Customers can view the list of known issues within the Jamf Pro product listing in My Assets.

Self Service Branding

Implemented in 10.0.0
Posted: by ranschaj Last Response: by bradtchapman

It would be nice to be able to brand Self Service to match a corporate design language. It should include items like the icon, splash page, and in site titles. Doing this would let users have a more comfortable experience than going to a site without the company branding.

Posted: by drew.manor

As of Jamf Pro 10, the new Self Service for macOS will allow admins to customize their organization's Self Service from within Jamf Pro. Admin's will be able to determine the Self Service Icon, Self Service Name and Branding Header. If you decide to brand the icon and name, the changes will be reflected in the following areas as well: main page of Self Service, required/optional login pages, dock and Finder icons.

At this time, we believe we have solved this Feature Request. If there is a need to enhance this feature, please help us understand the current priority of that need by submitting a new feature request.

Prepopulated Blacklist for Restricted Software

Under Review
Posted: by lisacherie Last Response: by lisacherie

A pre-populated blacklist that can be enabled in the Restricted Software settings including applications like:
known spyware
keystroke loggers
torrenting applications

Posted: by beth.lindner

The problem posted in this Feature Request seems to be that we want to stop end users from running software on their macOS devices that will breach security compliance standards and potentially expose data. A few solution ideas were discussed here, one of which is to crowd source the list of software that should be restricted using the Jamf Nation community.

Right now we are investigating how Restricted Software enhancements may correlate to our current Jamf Pro initiatives. We don't have any enhancements planned for upcoming releases, but we are keeping this as Under Review because we are continuing to ideate on how we can help solve this problem. If we discover this does not map with any of our roadmap initiatives for Jamf Pro, we'll reevaluate the status at that time.

Please keep the solution ideas and use cases coming our way. We very much appreciate feedback on how Jamf Pro can get even better!!

Manage Self Service/Policy Icons

Under Review
Posted: by Sonic84 Last Response: by bpavlov

Feature wishlist:
Provide a in-JSS web GUI to manage custom icons uploaded to the JSS for policies used in self service. Should list all icons uploaded to the JSS and which policies are using them. Should list some specifications for each icon: dimensions, file size, dpi, etc...
Provide options to replace icon source or delete icon. Replacing an icon resource should update related policies without needing to go into each affected policy and choose a new icon manually.

Add "Installed Apps" view in Self Service

Implemented in 10.0.0
Posted: by evarona Last Response: by grahamrpugh

This should work like the Purchases tab in AppStore and (maybe) should be able to detect installed apps even if not installed by Self Service. Apps that have been installed by JSS policy should change the Install button (and color for "managers") to a 2 separate "Reinstall" and "Uninstall" buttons.

As of Jamf Pro 10, items that stay in Self Service after being executed will get a secondary action button to help users identify they have already installed and what they can do next.

At this time, we believe we have solved this Feature Request. If there is a need to enhance this feature, please help us understand the current priority of that need by submitting a new feature request.

Deferral Limit as "net %days" or "%n times"

Under Review
Posted: by blinvisible Last Response: by rhill

Current Deferral Limit settings for policies are a fixed date/time. For ongoing policies this is a pain because, once the date passes, you either lose a deferral period entirely, or you have to extend the deferral date indefinitely, which means the policy may never be applied. I would like to be able to set a deferral limit of %n number of days since first deferral or %n number of times from first deferral, allowing a set grace period before policy enforcement regardless of specific calendar dates.

Posted: by beth.lindner

The problem posted in this Feature Request is about how we have some very important policies, such as software updates, that really need to be run on macOS devices in a timely fashion. However, our end users do important work so we want them to control when they're interrupted by computer reboots. Because the current implementation has a deferral date deadline, whenever users are offsite because of holidays or leave events, they come back to work and cannot be immediately productive because policies need to run based on the expired deferral date. This leads to end user irritation and ruins the Apple seamless experience. This can also lead to data loss and work productivity impacts. Please let me know if I have misunderstood anything from the comments.

A solution idea presented here is to make the deferral for a certain number of days after each time a Policy is triggered, so that this deferral is specific to a user/device instead of specific to the Policy. Thank you to everyone who is sharing workaround ideas in the comments!

Right now we are investigating how enhancements surrounding this end user experience may correlate to our current Jamf Pro initiatives. We don't have any features specifically planned for upcoming releases, but we are leaving this as Under Review because we are continuing to ideate on how we can help solve this problem. If we discover this does not map with any of our roadmap initiatives for Jamf Pro, we'll reevaluate the status at that time.

Display policies assigned to packages, scripts and groups

Under Review
Posted: by ryanstaylornet Last Response: by scottb

In the Web version of Casper Admin, I'd like to select a package or script and have it display all the policies the package/script is assigned to. This is helpful if I need to delete or modify a package, to know what policies are affected.

Also, it would be nice to select smart or static groups and display all the policies associated with the groups.
