Apple Watch to Unlock

I've recently started in a new K-12 ISD and my CIO would like to use the unlock feature for his Mac. The previous Admin has this feature blocked. Where can I add in an exception to allow this for a few users?

Depens how it is blocked, because there are various ways.

Assuming it is blocked through Jamf Pro and a Configuration Profile is used
- Make sure no Configuration Profile is restricting the feature Allow user to unlock the Mac using an Apple Watch
- Create a Configuration Profile where you do allow the use of Allow user to unlock the Mac using an Apple Watch -> Security & Privacy -> General - checkbox Allow user to unlock the Mac using an Apple Watch

If it is not done by a Configuration Profile it can be done through a simple script / command with defaults.

something like

sudo defaults write com.apple.applicationaccess allowAutoUnlock -bool true
