Autorun Imaging Settings

Disclaimer: Apple does not recommend or support monolithic system imaging as an installation method because of recent improvements in macOS security, hardware, management, and deployment. Apple encourages IT administrators to convert from device imaging to Automated Device Enrollment (formerly DEP) workflows. For more information on supported methods of installing macOS, see APFS and imaging in Apple's macOS Deployment Reference. For more information about enrolling and deploying computers using Automated Device Enrollment and a PreStage enrollment configured in Jamf Pro, see Computer PreStage Enrollments.

The Autorun imaging settings in Jamf Pro allow you to configure the following settings for Autorun imaging:

  • The delay before the imaging process starts automatically
    This only applies if a computer’s Autorun data is configured to start the imaging process automatically. During the delay, a pane is displayed that allows you to cancel the imaging process.

  • The amount of space to leave available when caching files

  • The attribute to use for comparing cached files to files on a distribution point
    This ensures that the most up-to-date files are cached on the computer.
