Network and Local Authentication Restrictions

You can configure Jamf Connect to manage when users can complete network or local authentication to log in to computers. The Require Network Authentication (DenyLocal) setting forces users to log in with the cloud identity provider. When enabled, the Local Login button is hidden from the login window. This setting is usually used alongside the Allow Local Fallback (LocalFallback) setting, which only allows users to use local authentication if a network connection is unavailable. Together, these settings ensure the following:

  • Computers are secured via network authentication.

  • Users are not locked out of their computers if a network connection is unavailable.
