Auto Login with ABM Big Sur+

Valued Contributor II

I thought I would share a workflow for enabling auto-login for Macs with pre-stage and JAMF Pro on Big Sur+

First the tools you'll need:


1. MacUserGenerator app 

2. Payload-Free_Package_Creator.pkg

3. JamfConnectMetaPackage

4. Jamf Pro Pre-stage setup like this.

5. Jamf Composer installed

6. Apple Developer ID Installer cert or a Jamf Pro Self signed cert to sign the pre-stage pkgs.

Self Sign how to guide is in here



1. Create the auto-login account with file and export as python script.

Make sure you check the two check boxes below.


2. Use the payload free package creator and add the python script from step 2.

3. Open Jamf Composer and create a blank pkg.

    A. The pkg is created from step 2

    B. Add post-install script and add this script and update the path and pkg name  JamfConnectMetaPackage

   C. Create the pkg and sign and add to your pre-stage.


4. Done! Now this is ready for you to test.

The great thing about this workflow is no reboot required to auto login as your account you create. The Mac will enroll and go right to the desktop.
