We have been using the functionality to automatically update iOS apps with out problem for more than a year. It has stopped working since we updated to JSS 9.98.
The last time this stopped working was when iOS 9.2 came out that took months to solve.
Our student iPads do not have the App Store. The only work around that we know of is to have the student reinstall the app from Self Service to get the most recent version. This is a pain!
We have opened a support case but have not heard anything yet. Is anyone else seeing the same problem?
As I had not heard anything since I open my support case on 3/31 I called into JAMF support this morning.
This situation is an acknowledged defect in the 9.98 release. It is being tracked as PI-003769
No ETA of a fix yet, or whether it will be a hotfix or maintenance release. I just need it fixed ASAP!
I assumed 9.98 was needed to support iOS 10.3. JAMF stated they were going to update all hosted customers to 9.98 upon release.
I don't know if our hosted environment was updated because I requested it or if all hosted customers were.
This is a serious defect in my opinion. JAMF made a big deal of pre-zero day support of iOS 10.3. I just hope this is not signalling a return to the product quality issues that impacted JSS back in 2014-15.
We were contacted about the hot fix being available on 4/18/17. It does resolve the problem, but I had to "force updates" to catch up on missed updates before the hot fix was applied.
Let's hope that JAMF QA release testing has been updated to validate that app updates work before a new JAMF version is released.
