It’s possible to change the IP address to a static address. This seems like it would be difficult to manage though. I have used DHCP reservations to force the iPad to get the same address every time. If you are using LAN adapters just be aware that the MAC address is in the external adapter and that will determine which address it gets.
I need to set a static IP for retail/restaurant Point of sale systems, they must be static to talk correctly
If not static, then i suppose i could do DHCP reservations
I don't see the abilty to assign static IPs using Jamf
