All changes and improvements made here are also immediately converted into Jamf's JSON Schema in the ProfileManifestsMirror repository for use with Jamf. This provides an intuitive interface for managing payloads and preferences not natively supported in Jamf.

A debt of gratitude is owed to Elliot Jordan for his efforts in extending the functionality of this framework!

Manifest Format

The payload manifest files are using Apple's Preference Manifest File format to describe the payloads and their keys.

To meet all required functionality that format has been extended with more keys and options. Use this reference to create manifests for the ProfilePayloads framework and ProfileCreator.
