Configuration Profiles > Login Items > Network Mounts - Broken?

Hi,

I'm trying to get a network volume mounted automatically at login.

The volumes are on an AFP server. In Jamf Pro I am using Configuration Profiles > Login Items > Network Mounts and entering the following:

afp://myserver.mycompany.com/MyVolume

On client computers I can see in Utilities > System Information > Software Profiles that the loginitems.managed item is being pushed correctly to the client, with the correct afp path as above.

However, no volume is mounted at login. In System Preferences > Users & Groups > CurrentUser > Login Items a volume is shown, but there is no path - only "/".

I can see discussion that others have problems with this payload. Is it expected to work at all with 10.14 and 10.15?

Thanks,

ft.

Hi,

as this is broken a long time already, we moved to something which is way more reliable. Check out https://gitlab.rrze.fau.de/faumac/networkShareMounter

Thanks to RRZE for this great tool!

Ah, ok, thanks for confirmation it is broken.
Why is it still in the Jamf Pro interface if it's broken? I spent a bunch of time trying to get it to work.
I'm new to Jamf. Are there any good resources which show the broken parts of Jamf so I don't waste more time on broken stuff?
thanks,
