How to collect user information and apply it throughout Jamf Pro
If we connect Jamf Pro to an LDAP service and then assign a username to Macs or iPads, we have access to a lot of directory information we can use to customize our end users' experiences. For example, we can customize dialog windows with their names, scope apps to all members of a department or all students in the same grade, create standardized macOS accounts in the Setup Assistant, and even pre-populate Office 365 and Outlook information for a one-click setup. The functionality to make this work is built into Jamf Pro. Administrators just need to enable it and then understand how to pull it in for their needs. We'll cover: How to populate Jamf Pro with usernames from a Mac or iPad How to collect user information from Active Directory, Azure AD or any LDAP server How to add user information to scripts and dialogs How to add user information to configuration profiles with payload variables How to send emails to users from Jamf Pro A customized experience not only saves our end users time but also ensures consistency and accuracy of information.
