One bucket for Multiple Jamf instances

New Contributor II

Good Morning everyone,

we are currently upgrading to multiple jamf instances so the idea rised that we could use one AWS Bucket for multiple instances, i cant find anything related to this anywhere so is this a new idea(wich i doublt) or is it just not common. So please tell me why or why you wouldn't do it. i know that tools like jamfswitcher exist so i think there needs to be a reason why people don't do it...

thankyou in advance :)

Not sure about logistics/technicalities of separate Jamf servers using the same AWS bucket, but if you are on-prem and have not configured AWS cloud DP yet, you probably won't be able to.

  • reach out to jamf support and ask them about PI-007369 - Jamf Pro with Java 11 fails to create the AWS DP.

@jMohs I think it's safe to say that falls into the category of "Not a good idea." Jamf Pro doesn't look at the contents of the bucket to see what's available, but keeps a table in the database to track what's added/deleted from the DP, and you can't synchronize that across multiple JSS instances.
