Activation type
Description
MDM controls
This activation type provides basic device management using device controls that
macOS
makes available.
When a user activates a
macOS
device, the device and the user are set up as separate entities on
BlackBerry UEM
. Separate communication channels are established between
UEM
and the device and
UEM
and the user account, allowing you to manage the device and the user separately. Some profiles are assigned to the user only (for example, email profiles). Some profiles are assigned to the device only (for example, proxy profiles). Some profiles allow you to choose whether to apply the profile to the device or the user (for example,
Wi-Fi
profiles).
You can control the device using commands and IT policies. Users activate
macOS
devices using
BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
.
