Hey Arden,

Thank you for reaching out to us!

Hexnode UEM lets you execute custom scripts on macOS devices running on macOS 10.11 and above. We have a set of bash scripts that have been tested and verified to perform the app management functions that you have requested:

  • Open an application: You can open an application using the following methods:
    1. App name: open –a “app_name”
    2. Bundle ID: open –b bundle_id
  • Uninstall an application: sudo rm -rf “/path to the app”
  • Force-close an application: killall “appname”

You can also check out Hexnode’s sample script repository for macOS devices which includes a wide range of verified scripts. If you have further queries, please do reach out to us again.

Hope this clears your query.
