Jamf Nation - we are very excited to let you know that the new version of Jamf Connect is live and available for use! The goal of this release is to provide a more streamlined experience for both admins and end users. This release includes the following -
Unified Menu Bar App: Jamf Connect Sync and Jamf Connect Verify are now a single menu bar app called "Jamf Connect" that can be configured and deployed for any supported cloud identity provider (IdP).
Login Window Redesign: The login window has been redesigned with a modern and improved user experience for both Okta authentication and OpenID Connect authentication methods.
Fancy New App Icon: Look for a new app icon when installing and opening Jamf Connect. The org Jamf icon still is used in the menu bar when the app is open.
• Open Okta Dashboard on Sign-in—Allows users or admins to determine the Okta dashboard is automatically opened in browsers after sign-in. The preference key name is LaunchBrowser and it's a boolean that's embedded in the WebBrowser dictionary.
• Custom Login Window Message—Display a custom login window message (kind of like the macOS policy banners). The preference key name is LoginWindowMessage.
Jamf Connect Configuration Enhancements: Jamf Connect Configuration includes support for configuring primary Jamf Connect 2.0 settings and the following new features:
• XML Editor—You can now use an XML editor mode to preview the configuration profile in XML and make manual changes to your configuration profile. To view and edit your configuration profile in XML, click the </> icon.
• New App Icon—Look for a new app icon when opening Jamf Connect Configuration.

The Jamf Connect team
In the JAMF pro config profile theres no preference domain for JAMF Connect but only separate Login and Verify options and also no version 2.0.0?
As we are currently using this method to create the config plist theres no option to change the preference domain for verify to com.jamf.connect so we would need to upload the plist manually and edit it manually. A little thing for some but a big change for users who are not comfortable editing plists in text editors.
EDIT - I can see the option for JAMF Connect 2.0 has been added now ignore me :)
Should we be opening tickets for bugs, or is there a central thread for these? I've already run into a few (ShowWelcomeWindow has disappeared when configuring the preferences through Jamf Pro so can't be hidden, Shares doesn't honor a name change and splits Home Directory out of the Shares menu (and also doesn't work))
Not sure about the login part, but the Sync part of 2.0 is working way better. Super snappy, super responsive, and now password changes made from the okta dashboard actually trigger an alert to sync on the machine. Overall super happy with it so far!
Hi, yes i have almost got it working now, thanks. I followed this walkthrough https://travellingtechguy.blog/upgrading-to-jamf-connect-2-0/
pretty much working now so was something I did incorrectly. The only issue i have now before i can roll out is jamf connect menu gives an error syncing passwords in an azure hybrid setup with PHS password hash syncing Error is 'ERROR: The operation couldn’t be completed. (JCAuthentication.JCAError error 15.), STATUS: Optional(400).'
Have this logged with jamf so if/when I get this sorted, will be good to deploy.
Much better enrolment process that in V1
