I'm looking for recommendations on cloning our current "live" Jamf Cloud instance to create a testing (sandbox) environment. The server has been already created but it's in a "vanilla" state. Maybe there is a way to export/import settings...? In the immediate future, we are hoping to test API communication and then do more things down the road.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@jothedsa how did you get on with this? I need to setup our Sandbox environment but can't find any 'best practice'. You have any advice?
Jamf Support advised me against cloning the live environment but that is the only advice they could really offer.
Hi @mcgace , sorry for the delayed response. I ended up using Jamf migrator. The process is easy although there were some things (I don't recall what) that it didn't migrate over. If you visit https://github.com/jamf/JamfMigrator, you can find more information. Having a GUI is a plus as well! It's interesting Jamf support was against it. I talked to someone at JNUC2019 and they suggested it. The reason we needed it was to test some API integrations with our ticket system. We didn't want to do that in our live instance.
@leslie, You are correct- duplicating VPP, DEP, etc will cause issues so I don't recommend it either. I probably should have added that disclaimer. Our current sandbox has not been configured with VPP, DEP, etc - thats for another day! My response was from the standpoint that jamfmigrator is a great tool which will can do a great bulk of the cloning but some additional setup needs to be done.
