Python tool to output Jamf Pro mobile device app catalog info. Written mostly to get installed app count - the number of iOS devices on which an app is installed. Default behavior (or -all) is to loop through all available mobile device apps in a Jamf Pro server and write data to CSV.

 > ^ <

Reported fields:

  • id - Jamf Pro mobile device app ID.
  • name - App name.
  • main_category - Main app category.
  • self_service_cat1-5 - Five Self Service categories. Ends up being first five API returns.
  • featured - If the app is included under the featured category in Self Service.
  • installed_count - Number of iOS devices on which an app is installed.
  • used_licenses - Used license count.
  • remaining_licenses - Remaining license count.
  • total_licenses - Total available licenses.
  • price - Current price from App Store. Default is to return USD from US App Store.
  • latest_release - Date of latest version release.
  • average_rating - Total average rating. Not rating of current version.
  • bundle_id - App bundle ID.
  • jamf_url - Jamf Pro mobile device app link based on provided URL in config.json.
  • itunes_url - App Store URL pulled from Jamf Pro.

Note: Only apps where device based VPP is enabled are included. Want more fields? Submit a PR! :)

Required Jamf Pro privileges:

  • Create, read, update, and delete for Advanced Mobile Device Searches
  • Read for Mobile Device Apps

Requires requests for API calls. Use pip install --user requests to install if you need it.

Change values in config.json as needed before running. iTunes API country code can be changed following ISO 3166-1 format (

To get app counts an advanced search is created per app, devices counted, and then search object deleted. This can increase advanced search count by a lot, but shouldn't impact the database since the advanced search object is temporary. Tested with python3 on macOS 10.13 and 10.14.

--all                   Default behavior. Loop through all Jamf Pro mobile
                        device apps and output data to CSV in working

--app-id jamf_pro_app_id [jamf_pro_app_id ...]
                        Pass in a mobile device app ID. Multiple IDs can be
                        included separated by space. e.g. --app-id 101 110 605

--file-path path_to_file
                        Path to file with list of new line separated app IDs.

--disable-count         Disable count of number of iOS devices on which an app
                        is installed. Speeds up reporting by a lot.
                        installed_count will be None.

--retry                 Number of retry attempts to get advanced search data
                        after object is created. Usually used when Jamf Cloud
                        is slow to create search objects.

--version               Print version and exit.

Future plans:

  • Add multithreading to return large catalogs more quickly.
  • Include scope data.
  • Allow app lookup by name.
  • Output app data to session instead of CSV.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
