Microsoft AD to Jamf Cloud

New Contributor

Hello, I understand there are alot of questions regarding AD integration and ive read most of them, But ive got a couple of questions still not answered.

Im looking actually to simplify account creation, where we dont need to create accounts and tag the assets / computers / mobile devices.

  1. Does linking Jamf Cloud to the LDAP server(locally) do this? Or does it only helps to register the Computer / Device to the AD.

  2. On configuration end, from what Ive read. I just require to open my port to jamf's servers correct? All the communications from else where should be dropped.

  3. What kind of security risks are there If I open my firewall's port just for this service?
