Munki Catalog Browser

Standard

Munki Catalog Browser is the last project that we released during our JNUC 2019 talk & is an app which allows a local macOS admin to easily list items in your devices Munki catalogs as well as exporting to CSV.

Within dataJAR, this is used to pass an up-to-date list of items available for deployment via our Auto-Update Framework.

Jamf Pro Kubernetes Reference Build

Standard

At dataJAR we migrated from multi-context Jamf Pro deployments to Kubernetes the January after Jamf Pro 10 was released. Migrating & updating customer Jamf Pro instances at the same time.

During our JNUC 2019 talk we detailed why we did this, & we have a repo showing the raw files which allow the how to happen. These can be found, here.

However, that repo has a large explanatory gap.

As such, if containerising Jamf Pro is something that is of interest, I’d recommend Jamf’s own Kubernetes Manifests repo.

Ours can be used to cross reference, & we update ours periodically.

Jamf Switcher

Standard

During our JNUC 2019 talk, another item James & I detailed was how we at dataJAR easily switch between the 100+ Jamf Pro instances we host.

Enter Jamf Switcher, the app to bring the word faff to the Jamf Marketplace!

For details on how this came to be, see below.

Introducing AutoImagrNBI

Standard

AutoImagrNBI_256 Say hello to AutoCasperNBI’s relative AutoImagrNBI.

As the name implies, AutoImagrNBI is a variant of AutoCasperNBI but will create NetBoot images for use with Imagr.

This came about as the requirements for an NBI for Imagr are similar to that of Casper Imaging, & so hasn’t been a massive amount of work needed.

AutoImagrNBI differs from AutoNBI in that the end result is a NetBoot Image & not a NetInstall Image. A NetBoot Image is a full OS that can be made available for network booting, whereas NetInstall is a limited environment. AutoImagrNBI can also create a DMG for restoring to external media such as USB sticks.
