Enabling Jamf Unlock on Computers

By default, Jamf Unlock settings are hidden in the Jamf Connect menu bar app. To display these settings and allow users to access the Paired Devices window, you must set the EnableUnlock key to true in a configuration profile or PLIST written to the com.jamf.connect preference domain.

If you also plan to require users to use a PIN to complete authentication requests, you must also configure the RequirePIN setting.

Configure and deploy the following settings as a separate .mobileconfig or PLIST or in an existing configuration profile for the menu bar app:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
    <key>Unlock</key>
        <dict>
            <key>EnableUnlock</key>
            <true/>
            <key>RequirePIN</key>
            <true/>
        </dict>
</dict>
</plist>

After the profile is distributed, Unlock settings display and users can pair their mobile device.
