IBM Cloud Identity

Jamf Connect Login provides support for IBM Cloud Identity and can be used to replace the standard macOS loginwindow with an IBM web view. Using the IBM web view, you can do the following:

  • Authenticate via a custom app in IBM Cloud Identity

  • Use multi-factor authentication (MFA) and support conditional access

  • Create a local account on a macOS computer

These capabilities and other customizations can be easily configured with configuration profiles sent via MDM or installed locally on the computer.
