MacOnboardingMate (MOM) is a wizard designed both to streamline the onboarding of a Mac in a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution, and to migrate a Mac from one MDM to another MDM. Jamf Pro, Jamf Fundamentals (Jamf Now) and Jamf School are among the 14 management solutions supported to date.
MOM offers two execution modes which are differentiated by the way MOM is launched and the workflows supported :
- In Setup mode, MOM is executed manually from an opened user’s session ; this execution mode is aimed to onboard or to migrate a Mac that is already in production
- In AutoSetup mode, MOM is executed from a management solution, either automatically or from a Self Service ; this execution mode is aimed to onboard a new or resetted Mac enrolled during the Setup Assistant or to migrate a Mac that is already in production.
The MDM migration is the flagship capacity of MacOnboardingMate 4. It implies both the assisted unenrollment from the previous MDM before the enrollment in the new MDM, and the copy of selected inventory values of the migrated device during its exodus.
MOM offers a growing list of capacities in the domains of enrollment, basic and advanced configurations, device renaming, management account customization, directory and other products integration, with specific capacities for Jamf Pro and Jamf School relying on API calls. All of these capacities are enabled via a configuration file with over 100 keys so scripting knowledge is not a requirement. To discover the full list of current capacities, please visit this page.
Some of the latest major additions include accepting a Computer Use Agreement, managing Find My Mac before enrollment, reissuing FileVault PRK during migration, integrating with Slack and Teams for dynamic feedbacks on workflow executions and scheduling allowed time slots for migration to reflect IT Support availability.
