Deploying Client on macOS Using VMware Workspace ONE (Non-Domain Joined)

Deploying Client on non-domain joined macOS devices using VMware Workspace ONE utilizes a preferences list (plist) file containing the email attribute to enroll the Client.

Prerequisites: Download Netskope Root and Intermediate certificates and convert them to .cer extension. To learn more, see Certificates.

Push email from Workspace ONE user profile to device

Here, you can add the Plist file containing the email variable in Workspace Sensor. Perform the following steps to add the Plist file:

  1. Log into your Workspace One admin console.

  2. Go to Resources > Sensors.

  3. Click Add > macOS.

  4. On the New Sensor window, provide Name and Description in the General section.

  5. Click Next.

  6. In the Details section, select the following:

    • Language: Bash

    • Execution Context: System

    • Response Data Type: String

    • Code:

      #!/bin/bash
      emailPrefFile="/Library/Managed Preferences/com.netskope.plist"
      if [ -f "$emailPrefFile" ];
      then
          echo "exists"
          echo "plist exists" > /tmp/plist.txt
      else
          /usr/libexec/PlistBuddy -c "add email string $userMail" com.netskope.plist
          cp com.netskope.plist /Library/Managed\ Preferences/
      echo "added"
      fi
  7. In the Variables section, create a variable to be used in the script during execution. Add userMail and select {EmailAddress} in the Key and Value fields respectively. You can add other variable names. However, ensure to add the same variable name as provided in the ‘bash’ script.

Important

You can see the file: com.netskope.plist under the directory: /Library/ManagedPreferences/ in your macOS device. This file contains the user email address. Ensure to check if an email address is assigned to the user, if you cannot find the email address in the plist file. To learn more, view Collect Data with Sensors in macOS.
