As an admin, you can use the Apple Education page to enable Apple Education functionality, which then allows for integration with Apple School Manager.

Note: This is functionality is only available to those with Workspace ONE UEM administrator roles and above.

What can you do with the Apple Education settings page?

With Apple Education settings, you can:

  • Activate or deactivate the Apple Education settings.
  • Set the class source.
  • Set maximum number of users that can be locally cached on a device.

Determine your Organization group hierarchy

Before you review and modify the settings, understand the two types of inheritance/override options for the organization group hierarchy available at the top and bottom of the settings page and determine your choice. For more information about these settings, see Override Versus Inherit Setting for Organization Groups.
  • Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.
  • Child Permission – Select the available behavior of child organization groups that exist below the currently selected organization group. Inherit only means child OGs are only allowed to inherit these settings. Override only means they override the settings, and Inherit or Override means you can choose to inherit or override settings in child OGs that exist below the currently selected OG.

Select the Education settings for a particular customer in the Apple's Education Settings page.
