Apple Scripting: An intermediate guide to automating common tasks

If you’re an Apple admin who would like to take the basic scripting skills you learned in Apple Admin Scripting for Beginners to the next level, this guide is for you!

This guide is based on the webinar "Scripting 201."

After a brief review of some common tasks from the beginners guide, Bill Smith, Partner Program Manager at Jamf, takes a deeper dive.

Learn how to automate three common IT tasks when managing Apple devices with three simple, powerful tools for scripting:

  • Write text to a file and retrieve it for later use
  • Use script parameters in Jamf Pro
  • Create interactive dialogs using jamfHelper and osascript

While this is an intermediate guide, each task is laid out clearly, step-by-step, with scripts you can use and clear explanations of each step.
