File Management/Login on macOS

expand collapsive

Hi! Is it possible to use custom mobile configurations? I want to distribute profiles with configurations for our software deployment client. Can I upload my own .mobileconfig file and push it to macOS devices?
For example, if I create a profile in Apple Profile Manager for Mac login window message and export it as a .mobileconfig, can I use this with Hexnode to push it to devices?

  • Hey Jack! We do not have the option to upload .mobileconfig files to macOS devices currently. Meanwhile, configuration profiles you are trying to create with Apple Profile Manager can be achieved via policies in Hexnode MDM.
    Glance through the Getting started with Mac management help doc for a preview on macOS device management.

    Hello Amy – what is the status of this feature to add custom .mobileconfigs to macOS devices.  Is it still planned?  I have not seen this as a planned feature in the pricing page for any of the editions including ultra. Thanks for an update.

    Any update when mobileconfig management for controlling privacy permissions for apps like “full disk access” etc will be available?
    It’s very much a requirement now for MacOs big sur as there’s not other scripted workaround anymore (that I’m aware of), and these settings can only be managed via MDM mobileconfig.

    It seems like the full disk access permission to be remotely deployed is currently being developed by our engineering team.

    Kindly drop us an email at, sharing your Hexnode account details to ensure that you shall be kept in loop with the developments on the same.
