macOS (managed) - Installing Advertised Canon Printers

In an effort to simplify the deployment of Canon devices on campus the Windows Device Management & Apple Device Management teams have collaborated on a method to deploy Canon printers using automation. This document provides an overview of how this works in our JamfPro Cloud environment. For Macs in the JPC environment, printers can be installed manually or via Self-Service.
