Access Control List Changes in Location Support

What's new


With this new addition to the ACLs you're able to create roles that you can later assign to administrators. This way you can quickly assign a pre-set configuration of rights to an admin.

How to create a role:

First, navigate to the new roles tab in Jamf School, found under Organisation > Administrators:


Once you're in this overview you'll see an overview of all the roles you've created. You can create a new role by clicking the Screen_Shot_2018-06-26_at_13.11.40.png button in the top right.

System Role:

This is a role that's automatically created by the system and can't be changed. This role has full access to every location. 

Creating a new Administrator

When you create a new administrator in your main location you'll have to assign a Role and Location to the admin you're creating.


When you're creating an Administrator in a sub-location you'll only have the option to select a role.

Default values

When you're creating a new role and don't set a value for a specific item, the default value is used.

Assigning roles

To assign the role to an admin user go to Organization->Administrators->Overview and then click the check box next to the desired admin name. Once you have selected the user or users click the "Assign Role" button that appears and select a role from the drop down list. Finally click the Apply button and that admin user will have their new role assigned.
