As an admin, you can configure various options that affect the macOS Intelligent Hub application. Use these settings to determine how often to collect data from devices, to allow passcode enforcement through Hub message prompts, to allow AirWatch Cloud Messaging so that devices receive push notifications and information about updates when available, and to choose how and when to allow updates.
The path to the Apple macOS Hub Settings page on the UEM console is Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apple > Apple macOS > Intelligent Hub Settings.
What can you do with the Apple macOS Intelligent Hub Settings page?
With the Apple macOS Intelligent Hub Settings page, you can:
- Collect and send data samples to the Intelligent Hub UEM server.
- Enable security and privacy options.
- Enter Scripts & Sensors path for running Bash or Python scripts.
- Enable Intelligent Hub automatic updates and version upgrades.
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.
|Always Use the Latest Version of the Hub||Select this check box to use the latest version of the Hub.|
In the dropdown, the versions of Intelligent Hub that are compatible with your current console version will be displayed.
Select the specific Intelligent Hub version that you wish to deploy from the available versions. The specified Intelligent Hub version is deployed to devices during the following scenarios:
The specified version of the Intelligent Hub is also available to devices that have an older version of the Hub installed if Automatic Updates are enabled for the macOS Intelligent Hub Settings, or if the user manually checks for updates through the Intelligent Hub.
Note: Attempting to install an older version of the Intelligent Hub on a device that already has a newer version installed is not supported, and may result in unexpected behavior unless the Intelligent Hub is fully uninstalled and then reinstalled. If an older version of the Intelligent Hub is specified to be deployed, any devices that already have a newer version of the Intelligent Hub installed will not attempt to auto-update to the older version, but newly enrolled devices will receive the specified older version.
Note: If you have selected an older version of the Intelligent Hub and then perform a UEM upgrade to a UEM version that no longer supports the specified version of the Intelligent Hub, the selection will automatically update to the oldest version of the Intelligent Hub supported by the UEM version. This will result in newly enrolled devices receiving this version of the Intelligent Hub, and existing devices may update to this version as well.
