I'm IT for my Primary school. I have 16 ipads set up with Jamf that are under one user because we use them with several classes. I want to upload books from my Apple school manager but it says 'Waiting for VPP licenses'. Any suggestions please?
This is quite a convoluted process I'm afraid!
Can I just clarify one point before I explain how it works - when you say that your 16 iPads are under one user - to you mean Apple ID or assigned to a user in User and Location in Jamf?
The book process works as follows
Finally, the iPad needs to be signed in with the apple ID that you assign the licence / invitation to in Jamf.
Hope this points you in the right direction.
apps can be assigned to devices and users. but books can only be assigned to users. So you have to generate a user for every device (generic ones like Name-XX) https://support.apple.com/de-de/guide/deployment-reference-ios/iorab247ae15/web
