HipSlack - because we can all be friends (and promoter...) #HipChat #Slack

Channeling my inner David Hayer, “Kept you waiting, huh?” But really, it has been a while. I’ve had a pretty tumultuous 2015 that pulled me away from projects both at JAMF and personally, and also took time away from the Mac admin communities, but now I’m…

I have strong opinions on API design

Between working with established APIs and the reading and experimenting as I work on my own, I've determined there are a number of design choices I would want implemented in any API I worked with.

A goal I have had for some time was to get away from users simply “requesting” their VPP apps through Self Service and being able to grant them the ability to self-assign those apps (as long as they were eligible).  After doing some work on a little HTML…

I had a really positive response to the original article I posted on the JSS API, and the good people over at Macbrained.org even asked for a copy to be posted up on their site. It was a lot of fun to write up and I decided to expand upon the first post…

Update App Info - New Script

The issue this tries to address is that the JSS never updates a posted app after you have created it. So "Microsoft Word for iPad" became "Microsoft Word" several versions later, and your users will see this in the App Store, but in Self Service it still…

Very please with the performance boost. I’m vastly under-utilizing the total available capacity of the Pool, but that’s OK.  I can increase the size of any of these Spaces at any time. Once I had removed all of the drives for the old Pool it no longer…

In this post I'm going to be exploring the JAMF Software Server (JSS) REST API. In the opening we'll be covering some of the basics behind HTTP requests and responses. Then there will be examples of making these calls for both Bash and Python that you can…

Love this article. I've worked with the api a little and have some bash to query certain elements from the JSS. I need more automation, hence why I'm looking at autoPKG also.

Good work.
