Configure the Login Window profile to control the look and feel of the login window, including options for logging in, and directory user access to the device.

To configure the Login Window profile:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles and select Add. Select Apple macOS, and then select Device Profile, since this profile is only applicable to the entire device.
  2. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  3. Select the Login Window payload.
  4. Configure Login Window settings using the tabs, including:
