GitLab as a source of truth for JAMF scripts

New Contributor

I am attempting to manage our organizations flow of scripts by using GitLab commits to add new scripts through the JAMF API. I am using Jenkins to auto-run these jobs on commit to check for changes, and then post those changes to our organizations JAMF Pro scripts.

I am new with APIs, and am having a hard time figuring out how to post multiple scripts to JAMF using the POST /v1/scripts. 

Has anyone ever found a good solution to adding multiple scripts at the same time through the API? And if so, is there a way to avoid this type of parameter declaration? I am still figuring out the SCM pull, so please ignore that part. I just need to know if there is a better way to POST new scripts, and clobber the old ones when scripts are edited.


stages {
    stage('Build') {
	 when { changeset SCM } 
        steps {
          container('ubuntu') { 
            sh """

              credentials=$(printf "$username:$password" | /usr/bin/iconv -t ISO-8859-1 | /usr/bin/base64 -i - )


              # Create auth token
              uapi_token=$(curl -s -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Basic ${credentials}" -X POST "${jps}/uapi/auth/tokens" | jq -r '.token')

              curl -X POST "<jamf_server_url>" \
               -H "accept: application/json" \
               -H "Authorization: Bearer ${uapi_token}"
