Acceptable Use Policy

You can use Jamf Connect to display an acceptable use policy at the login window, which the user must accept before accessing the computer.

An acceptable use policy agreement can be displayed with the following methods, which Jamf Connect will look for in the following order:
  • Apple Policy Banner

    If you configured an Apple policy banner, Jamf Connect will display the contents of the policy banner on the acceptable use policy screen. Jamf Connect automatically searches /Library/Security for a file named "PolicyBanner" to display this file. No additional settings need to be configured for Jamf Connect to detect and display this file.
 For more information about Apple policy banners, see How to set up policy banners in macOS from Apple's support website.

  • Custom File Upload

    You can store a custom file that contains your acceptable use policy content and configure the Acceptable Use Policy Document (EULAFilePath) setting with the value of the file path.

  • Login window configuration profile

    You can use Acceptable Use Policy Title (EULATitle), Acceptable Use Policy Subtitle (EULASubTitle), and Acceptable Use Policy Text ( EULAText) to store all the text directly in your login window configuration profile.

Keep the following in mind when configuring an acceptable use policy agreement with Jamf Connect:

  • If using an Apple policy banner or the Acceptable Use Policy Document setting, supported file types are PDF, TXT, RTF, and RTFD.

  • If multiple methods are configured, Jamf Connect will use the order of precedence above to display a single method for the body text. The Acceptable Use Policy Title ( EULATitle ) and Acceptable Use Policy Subtitle ( EULASubTitle ) will always display, if configured, and can be used to complement an Apple policy banner or custom file.
