I'm looking for the best process in retiring a Mac device. For example we get a four to five year old computer or iOS device in ASM and Jamf that will be donated or given to a retiree (I'm in Higher Ed). What is the process that folks use to accomplish this? Is there a way to bulk remove devices from ASM, Jamf, DEP, etc...?
Easy solution: I created a smart group that hold all "to be released" Macs (based on a Extension Attribute). Then I created an Advanced Computer Search based on that smart group. You could check everything in "Display" and create a Report. Use XML as CSV and TSV may fail with some spacial signs.
As a bonus: you can use the smart group to delete all the Macs.
Hard solution: Use the API.
We have a .csv file with all the serial numbers of iPads we'd like to remove in bulk
"If you have the Macs in a group (smart or static) in Jamf, you can export that inventory as a .csv, edit the download to just include serial numbers, then upload to ASM for removal. Back to Jamf to run an action on the group to remove them from inventory."
Could you describe the "then upload to ASM for removal. " part in more details? I don't see any way of doing this Today.
