Manual macOS Device Enrollment

Updated on November 11th, 2020

This article describes how macOS devices can be enrolled in Miradore by downloading and installing Miradore’s MDM Profile to the devices.

This enrollment method is intended for enrolling non-DEP associated Macs and devices that are already in use. This enrollment method does not require the devices to be reset during the enrollment. Device users with admin privileges can remove the MDM profile from manually enrolled non-DEP-associated macs if they wish to do so.

How Manual Enrollment Differs from the DEP Enrollment?

Apple DEP-enrollment is preferred in most organizations for enrolling company-owned, DEP-associated devices because it enables more management capabilities and prevents the removal of the MDM profile from the device.

Requirements

  • Apple Push Notification service needs to be configured using a valid Apple Push Certificate on your Miradore site
  • Administrator or Editor rights are needed in Miradore to start the enrollment
  • The one performing the enrollment needs physical access to the device(s)
  • The one performing the enrollment needs administrator access on the device(s)
  • Miradore supports the management of Macs running macOS 10.7 or later
  • The device needs to be network-connected

How to Enroll One macOS Device
