Using AutoPkg to get the latest Jamf Protect installer and uninstaller from your Jamf Protect tenant

February 17, 2022 Leave a comment

Jamf has enabled a new feature on Jamf Protect tenants, where you can generate a download URL for the latest Jamf Protect client installer and uninstaller. These download URLs do not require authentication, but a security identifier unique to the Jamf Protect tenant needs to be included as part of the download URL:

Once generated, the download links are formatted similar to this:

Uninstaller:

For example, if the Jamf Protect tenant and security identifier were as shown below, the curl commands would look like this:

  • Jamf Protect tenant: companyname.protect.jamfcloud.com
  • Security token: c1f0d1cb-8ddc-4f36-9578-58a7388053d5

Installer:

Uninstaller:

Since the Jamf Protect installer and uninstaller can be downloaded from your Jamf Protect tenant, this means that it’s now possible to use AutoPkg to get the latest Jamf Protect client installer and uninstaller as soon as they are available from your Jamf Protect tenant.
