Overview of the Library section of Kandji

The Library inside your Kandji account is where you can curate, create, and select items that can be added to Blueprints.

Library Interface Overview

  1. Clicking the Library item filter will allow you to filter your view to see all sections or a single section of the Library.
  2. Clicking on a device type will filter all results by the selected platform.
  3. Use the Search menu to search the Library for a specific item.
  4. Click Add New at the top right of the Library to add a new Library item.


The library item page displays glimpses in the upper-right corner of each library item card. Glimpses help provide insight into how you’ve configured the enforcement options for a library item.

The Library can contain the following types of items:

App Store Apps

Apps from the macOS and iOS App Store are available to be added to Kandji. When you add licenses to Kandji from within Apple Business Manger, that app will show as available in this section.

You can see which device type the app is made for at the bottom of the app, or you can sort by device type at the top of the Library page. You can also initiate a sync with your Apple Business Manager account by clicking Sync Now next to the App Store Apps header.
