This article provides information about the Jamf Connect service for UWM Mac users.
Jamf Connect Upgrade
Jamf Connect streamlines the Mac user experience by allowing users to keep their UWM ePantherID credentials in sync with Microsoft Azure AD services. This service is already being used by most UWM Macs.
Installing Jamf Connect
No action is necessary for users, as Jamf Connect will install in the background. Users will see the Jamf Connect log-in screen after logging out or rebooting their computer.
New Login Experience
Users will see a familiar Microsoft 365 login screen when logging in to their Mac. After successfully authenticating with Microsoft 365, users will then need to enter their password a second time to log into the computer.
Enter your UWM email address (example: ePantherID@uwm.edu) and click Next.
Enter your UWM Password and click Sign in.
Re-enter your UWM Password and click Log in to verify.
You are now signed into your device.
Using the Jamf Connect Menu Bar Application
Upon login you should receive a notification for JAMF CONNECT NOTIFICATIONS. UWM IT recommends turning notifications on. When prompted, click the Options drop down and select Allow.
Logging in to the menu bar application will allow Jamf connect to warn users 30 days before a password expires. It also contains links to changing an ePantherID password and helps to keep a password in sync between UWMs identity management infrastructure and the user’s computer. A connection to Active Directory via VPN, Ethernet, UWMWiFi, or Eduroam is required for password expiration notifications to refresh. If the number of days remaining is (negative) or has not refreshed, it will do so the next time campus Active Directory is reachable.
If you have trouble or questions with the Jamf Connect upgrade and login process, please contact the UWM Helpdesk.
