macOS - Installing Advertised Printers (managed)

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.










Adding a leased printer using Self-Service


Run the "Check for Printers Advertised to me" utility, Self Service will close upon completion, if it doesn't automatically re-launch, manually do so.

Check for advertised printers

Click the "Printing" category on the left menu bar and install or re-install the desired printer
Note: This utility will only show leased Canon devices, other printers are not currently advertised using this method

Install printer


The installed printer should be visible and available in "Printers & Scanners" on the System Preferences pane.
