7) Open the Settings in your BlueTally account and enter the Network ID and API Key you noted down earlier, and the server name of your Jamf School Instance (servernamejs.jamfcloud.com, only enter the servernamejs, example: amazonjs)

Then, select which fields in Jamf School you'd like to map to the Asset ID and Asset Name in BlueTally, if you'd like to automatically checkout assets to the employee the device is assigned to in Jamf School and if you'd like to merge data from Jamf School with existing assets you've added to the app.

In order to automatically checkout the assets to employees, they have to already be added as an Employee in the app. We recommend setting up our Active Directory integration before clicking Enable.

If you enable the Merge option, assets added to BlueTally with the same "Asset ID" as the "Device Name" (or the field you set in "Map Asset ID to") of a device in Jamf School, will have the fields "Asset Name" and "Serial Number" overwritten in BlueTally. That way, you can keep the full history of assets you already added to BlueTally, while getting the most important details from Jamf School.

That's it! It will take around ~10 minutes for the first transfer to complete.

All new devices added to Jamf School will automatically be added as an Asset in BlueTally, and if automatic checkout has been enabled, they'll be automatically checked out to their assigned user in Jamf School as well. If the device wasn't assigned to anyone in Jamf School at the time of first sync, it will be automatically checked out once it's been assigned a user in Jamf School.

If an asset is already in the app with the same Asset ID as a device in Jamf School, it will be skipped (unless you enable the Merge option).
