Please follow this guide to distribute certificates to computers (macOS). Before deploying the first certificates via Jamf, follow the general steps for Jamf first.

Add a new "macOS Configuration Profile" and choose "Certificate" as payload. Enter a meaningful name, upload the certificate (for"Select Certificate Option" select "Upload)" and activate "Allow all apps access":
Distribute that profile to all clients that should get SCEP certificates later.
