Bootstrap Tokens for macOS Devices

The MDM protocol has been expanded to support setting and retrieving bootstrap tokens for a macOS device. Bootstrap tokens enable mobile accounts to sign in on Macs that are utilizing FileVault. In previous versions of macOS, administrators often needed to build complicated workflows for their users in order to avoid restrictions related to the SecureToken mechanism.

A bootstrap token from Jamf Pro would be a very helpful asset in mitigating the use of shared Macs where FileVault is enabled.
