Microsoft Endpoint Manager Announces Support for Apple Mac Scripting
Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) is a comprehensive solution for managing endpoints – Windows, Mac, and mobile devices – across an organization. Its combination of mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) capabilities provide organizations with the tools they need to deploy, secure, and manage their devices, applications, and data.
The latest version of MEM, announced in October 2020, includes a new feature that allows organizations to manage Apple Mac devices using scripts. This post will provide an overview of the new scripting feature and discuss how organizations can take advantage of it.
What is MEM Scripting?
MEM scripting is a new feature of MEM that allows organizations to automate the configuration and management of their Apple Mac devices. It enables IT administrators to create and execute scripts that can configure the settings and applications on their Mac devices, as well as manage user accounts.
The scripting feature provides an easy way for organizations to automate the process of configuring and managing their Mac devices. This can save organizations time and effort, as well as reduce the need for manual configuration of settings and applications.
Benefits of MEM Scripting
MEM scripting provides a number of benefits for organizations that need to manage their Apple Mac devices. The scripting feature enables organizations to:
* Automate the process of configuring and managing Mac devices.
* Create scripts that can be used to configure settings and applications on Mac devices.
* Manage user accounts on Mac devices, making it easier to deploy and manage devices.
* Develop custom scripts to automate tasks and processes that are specific to their organization.
Getting Started with MEM Scripting
Organizations can begin using the MEM scripting feature by creating and executing PowerShell scripts in MEM. PowerShell is a powerful scripting language that can be used to manage and configure Windows and Mac devices, as well as many other devices and applications.
Organizations can create their own scripts or use scripts that are available from Microsoft. Microsoft provides a number of sample scripts that can be used to get started with MEM scripting. These scripts are available on the MEM Scripting page in the MEM documentation.
Organizations can also use the MEM Scripting API to create custom scripts that are tailored to their specific needs. The API provides an easy way to create and execute scripts that can be used to manage and configure Mac devices.
