Vendor configuration

The Jamf source requires you to provide the Base URL, Client ID, and Client Secret to access the source data.

  • The Base URL is used to retrieve the source data from Jamf. The Base URL for Jamf is Replace yourServer with your organization server.
  • To generate the Client ID and Client Secret, follow the instructions mentioned in the Jamf documentation.

Source configuration

When you create a Jamf Source, you add it to a Hosted Collector. Before creating the Source, identify the Hosted Collector you want to use or create a new Hosted Collector. For instructions, see Configure a Hosted Collector and Source.

To configure the Jamf Source:

  1. In the main Sumo Logic menu, select Manage Data > Collection > Collection.
  2. On the Collectors page, click Add Source next to a Hosted Collector.
  3. Search for and select the Jamf icon.
  4. Enter a Name to display for the Source in Sumo Logic. The description is optional.
  5. (Optional) For Source Category, enter any string to tag the output collected from the Source. Category metadata is stored in a searchable field called _sourceCategory.
  6. (Optional) Fields. Click the +Add Field link to define the fields you want to associate. Each field needs a name (key) and value.
    • green check circle.png A green circle with a check mark is shown when the field exists in the Fields table schema.
    • orange exclamation point.png An orange triangle with an exclamation point is shown when the field doesn't exist in the Fields table schema. In this case, an option to automatically add the nonexistent fields to the Fields table schema is provided. If a field is sent to Sumo Logic that does not exist in the Fields schema it is ignored, known as dropped.
  7. In Base URL, enter your Jamf instance domain,
  8. In Client ID, enter the Client ID you generated from the Jamf platform.
  9. In Client Secret, enter the Client Secret you generated from the Jamf platform.
  10. (Optional) In Look Back Time, enter the first collection start time. Default is 1 day.
  11. (Optional) The Polling Interval is set for 24 hours by default. You can adjust it based on your needs.
  12. (Optional) Processing Rules for Logs. Configure any desired filters, such as allowlist, denylist, hash, or mask, as described in Create a Processing Rule.
  13. When you are finished configuring the Source, click Save.
