Disable Captive Network Detection for macOS

I've been working with Apple support trying to suppress the Captive Network Detection for one specific 802.1x that we use.

Apple Engineering says that the “disable captive network detection” checkbox is honoured on macOS as it is on iOS.

I can see the option to disable captive network detection within the wifi payload in Mobile Device Configuration Profiles but not for Computers.

Would be great if jamf could add the option to “disable captive network detection” for computer configuration profiles as well.

Wow, Apple definitely needs to provide more guidance/clarity on this feature. Both Profile Manager in macOS Server and the ProfileCreator app label "Disable Captive Network Detection" as iOS-only.
