JAMF interface is simply Profiles>New. I don't recall categories.

In our production environment, only a small sysadmin group can create profiles because in our case, there are about 70 IT staff using JAMF. Too many spoons in the soup. We have multiple sites, but there were issues where if you create a profile that has a conflicting payload with an existing profile, then neither payload is enforced.

So we have a TEST JAMF environment in which anyone can do anything. That way we can check for conflicts before moving policies/scripts/profiles/packages, etc. to production. It's pretty easy to simply copy the payloads to production once it clears testing.

That really is the way to go. Except the engineers often wipe the TEST environment VM without backing it up on super-short notice--very annoying.

Not my job to save my work in my own personal github. That's what a TEST env is for. Those guys are assholes sometimes.
