Change Jamf Management Account

 There are times when you sometimes run across this message on a Jamf Instance.

So to fix this doesn't seem to be an easy task. Thanks to Jamf API call I have a script which will do all the steps to change this over for you with the exception of one step we can easily use a policy for.

This is what the script does:

1. Create a new local admin account.

2. Jamf API call to change the management account to this new local account

3. Send a Jamf recon at the end.

Taking this script we can build a policy that looks like this:

Scope this out to Macs and once this is done edit this setting in Jamf Pro to your local username.


  1. Does this still work with Jamf Pro 10.49, which removes the ability to modify the management account even in API, per Rich Trouton's latest blog post?

  2. I would say no, now that Jamf has made this change.
