Solution Description

Please review the documentation PDF, available via Jamf Sync's Help menu prior to use.

Jamf Sync helps synchronize Jamf Pro distribution points.

Once configured, clicking the “Synchronize” button will try to make the destination the same as the source by creating, updating, or deleting files on the target. When the destination is a distribution point for a Jamf Pro server, it will create packages in Jamf Pro for each file added. Jamf Sync also allows synchronization of local folders not configured in Jamf Pro.

For users that prefer a command line for automating the sync functionality, Jamf Sync has a built in command line tool. Once installed, check out the man page here:

/Applications/JamfSync.app/Contents/MacOS/JamfSync -h
