      • Note: We also support Site Access and Group Access if you’d like Vanta only to have access to certain Jamf objects belonging to a site. However, Users with Site Access cannot fetch Jamf accounts for Vanta access-related workflows. Proceed with this option if you do not wish to monitor Jamf account access in Vanta.

Controlling Scope through Jamf Pro

Vanta’s Jamf integration enables you to control which computers and accounts should be automatically marked in and out of scope in Vanta by creating and managing Vanta groups within Jamf.


  • Log in to Jamf Pro and click Settings in the left sidebar
  • Navigate to Network > Sites.
  • Create a site that will be used to scope accounts and computers in and out of Vanta by clicking the New button on the top right corner. The name needs to start with Vanta followed by any text, i.e. Vanta Employees.
  • Assign the group in Vanta to the desired accounts and computers. For more detailed instructions, visit the Jamf Pro product documentation.
