Actually set a Pin

Is Jamf capable of actually setting a pin on an Ipad?

I am managing a fleet of Ipads that are used for check ins and attendance taking. The university I work for requires the Ipads all have a pin code to use the university email, and email is needed to send the attendance results back to the home office. 

I can find a number of options about pin rules, and enforcing pins, but no actual option to set a pin so that I could apply the same pin to all the Ipads as part of the config policy.

You cannot set a PIN on an iOS device via Jamf or any other MDM. Apple does not allow it, likely to prevent the specter of iOS ransomware based on rogue MDMs.
