Today we released Jamf Connect 2.14.0 for general availability; this release includes the below details.
Key Feature Content
Disable password syncing for specific local accounts: The Password Sync Block List (PasswordSyncBlockList) setting is now available for configuration in Jamf Pro and Jamf Connect Configuration. IT allows you to specify a list of local macOS accounts that you do not want to go through password synching (typically admin accounts). You can specify one or more local accounts as an array of strings using their local macOS account names (i.e., short names).
Configure custom local account full names: The Full Name (OIDCFullName) setting is now available for configuration in Jamf Connect Configuration. It was added to Jamf Pro in the 2.13.0 release. This setting allows you to specify a single different claim for full name, such as firstName, lastName, or another custom value unique to your environment. This preference overrides the default attributes used to set the full name for an account: name, family_name/given_name, and first/last.
Default login window background image change: When the Background Image (BackgroundImage) setting does not contain an image file path, the default background is now macOS wallpaper instead of a gray background. This enhancement was noted as part of a version 2.13.0 but is only available starting with version 2.14.0.
Users now see password requirements: If a user’s password synching fails because their new password doesn’t meet the requirements enforced by macOS (via MDM passcode configuration, etc.), the user now sees a list of the requirements their password must meet instead of a generic message.

Is this compatible with macOS 12.5? I know I see in the Jamf Connect documentation that there is a minimum version (Computers with macOS 10.15.4 or later) but I don't see anything about if it's compatible with the latest macOS version.
Or would the software always be compatible with the latest official updates from Apple, just not past that minimum version?

Hey @dmote! You're right that Jamf Connect releases are always compatible with the minimum version (currently macOS 10.15.4, as you noted) through the latest macOS version.
