Starting in late August, a new version of JCDS will be released. To minimize potential disruption, you may need to make changes to your network configurations or third-party tools and plug-ins.

For information about new domains, see the “Outbound Traffic from the Jamf Cloud Distribution Point“ section of Permitting Inbound/Outbound Traffic with Jamf Cloud. The new version of JCDS will include performance enhancements and stability improvements. Additional details and will be published in the Jamf Cloud Distribution Service (JCDS) Release Notes in the future.


Not to be picky, but the entire article is based on that customers build an IP address white list in their firewalls. With JCDS, it seems like it will utilize the cloudfront CDN. This means that there's no way to predict or list all IP addresses, and that's why you specify a DNS whitelist instead.For consistency, it might be worth considering to abandon the IP list altogether and instead only go for DNS names. Perhaps this can be clarified in the article.

It's not very clear, but I think this points to the sub-section labeled “Outbound Traffic from the Jamf Cloud Distribution Point“, which only contains domain names.

Hi @PCalomeni. Not to be a noodge, but this page, https://learn.jamf.com/bundle/jamf-cloud-distribution-service-release-notes/page/Release_History.htm... has not been updated yet, past what was posted back in August, saying that "beginning on August 21, 2023, Jamf will be taking steps to enable JCDS 2.0.0." Maybe someone can update this page now, since I assume that the upgrades took place already?

Hello @mm2270 , Due to a potential issue that may lead to degradation of the server performance, the JCDS 2.0 upgrade has currently been paused. Out of an abundance of caution, the team has decided to pause the rollout of JCDS 2.0 until we can appropriately investigate and determine the impact. Thank you for your continued support and trust in Jamf. We are dedicated to providing you with the best experience with JCDS 2.0 and will be communicating an updated rollout schedule soon.
