Hello everyone, hope you all are doing well today. I have started a project dealing with laptop automation. I would like to point out that I have never automated anything before. I am now taking on some bigger projects at work and this is one of them. I find myself having to set up many computers for onboardings here. The way I set these up take too much time. I feel like I can be using that time to on other things. Our machines are enrolled in Jamf, and encrypted. Typical laptop setup process involves grabbing the quick add package. After that, I run the sudo jamf policy command in terminal. I can walk away from the computer while that is running. What I would like out of this project is to turn on a computer, run a script and it does everything. For instance, script grabs quickadd package from website. Script runs quickadd package, and runs sudo jamf policy. I also would like something that can quickly wipe/install MAC OS. We have employees who leave the company and we have to backup and wipe computers. I want to do as less manual work as possible. What makes this a difficult task for me is that im less than beginner at Linux and I don't have any devops knowledge. What im able to do is find things online and test them out. I can also slightly edit some scripts depending on complexity.
