Checking in on internal network

is there a way to perform a search that would tell me the last time a device has checked in on our internal network?

I can get the devices that the last time they checked in was not on our network, but that does not tell me when the last time they did.

Thanks

I don't know if there's something already logged for this. I would think that you could put something together using the network state change trigger in a policy to run a script that collects data as to what network the computer is on and then use an extension attribute to pull that data from the system. I've never tried it so there might be something I'm missing.

There is a search criteria for IP address. Set the value for your network segment, I have had success just using the first two groups (10.110.).
Create a smart group with IP and add Last check-in and you should have what you need.

wouldnt that just give me the last subnet they logged into... that will help, but will not tell me if a computer is only connecting outside of our network

For some reason, I can't seem to find the original source now, but the script below, developed by Joshua Roskos in Jamf Professional Services, may be adaptable to what you're looking for. You would, however, need to make some changes to the text that the script updates to the EA value for the machine. Maybe make it input a date value using the date command, like $(date +"%Y-%m-%d %T") If you make the EA use a date format, that would give you the ability to locate/search for machines that have checked in within x number of days, for example.

# This script was designed to be used in conjunction with an extension attribute in Jamf Pro
# that will be able to help us identify whether a macOS device is on the network or not.
#
# To accomplish this the following will be performed:
#           - Upon NetworkStateChange ping designated local server
#           - If a response is received, report Internal
#           - If no response is received, report External
#
# REQUIREMENTS:
#           - Jamf Pro
#           - macLocation Extension Attribute Created
#           - Policy created for this Script w/ a Trigger of NetworkStateChange
#           - Smart Computer Group to use for exluding off network computers from policies
#           - API User w/ the following permissions:
#               - Read & Update Permssion for Computers
#               - Read Permission for Computer Extension Attributes
#               - Update Permission for Users
#
# EXIT CODES:
#           0 - Everything is Successful
#           1 - Jamf Pro is not reachable
#           2 - Unable to update network location on Jamf Pro

If I can find the original github page where I ran across this, I'll update my post with that information.

If some one does come across this there have been changes to xpath in Big Sur. Took me awhile to figure out this issue. I couldn't find the script on github either.

Change this line

eaID=$(/usr/bin/curl -H "Accept: application/xml" -sfku "${apiUser}:${apiPass}" "${jamfProURL}/JSSResource/computerextensionattributes/name/${eaName}" | xpath '/computer_extension_attribute/id/text()')

to this

#eaID=$(/usr/bin/curl -H "Accept: application/xml" -sfku "${apiUser}:${apiPass}" "${jamfProURL}/JSSResource/computerextensionattributes/name/${eaName}" | xmllint --xpath '/computer_extension_attribute/id/text()' -)
