Jamf Protect insights and app not updating even if the macs check in on jamf pro

Hi

I just discovered that i have a lot of macs with the red marks on jamf protect. This means that they did not connect to jamf protect since one month. 

This is strange because those computers regularly check in with jamf pro and jamf protect is pushed automatically from jamf pro.

What can be the problem and how can i solve it?

@Phileinif they are still checking in via Jamf Pro, you can run this command / add this in a shell script to a Jamf Policy set for recurring check-in once a day & see how that goes, this will force a jamf protect check-in

 

 

sudo protectctl checkin

Re-Deploy the Configuration Profile (Un-scope / Scope) - for Jamf Protect. Re-Deploy the Jamf Protect Package. Clearly something is wrong with the Configuration Profile, that's where i'd start.
