Under the Hood: Device Enrollment

View Slides

Learn what's going on behind the scenes to make a zero-touch Apple device enrollment possible.

Learn the technical side of how to implement a zero-touch Apple device deployment.

We’re all familiar with the ultimate zero-touch goal of “Step 1 - open box, step 2 - power on Mac and step 3 - there is no step 3.” The idea is to make everything as simple as possible for the user to get a new machine, but what is going on behind the scenes to make this possible? In this 2018 Jamf Nation User Conference session, we will dive into what _mbsetupuser, activation records, apsd.keychain, iprofiles.apple.com and mdmclient are and how they help us provide an amazing experience to our coworkers. Understanding the process allows us to design more robust workflows and to better troubleshoot when things don’t go the way we expect them to.
