I have a fileset (folder) that I would like to deploy to each user's specific home folder. The problem is, we do not use a generic 'Admin' account, so each user's home folder is specific to their actual name / initials.
When creating the policy, I am trying to specify the install path, but using /Users/~ and trying to add wildcards (*) is actually creating folders with those names in the /Users folder. Does the JSS not follow normal reference protocols?
I have seen a few people post scripts on here that will essentially move an item once the installation completes, but I'm having difficulty ascertaining what elements of the script need to be modified to accomplish my specific goal.
Does anyone have any special instructions, or has anyone run into something similar to this?
If you use Composer to capture the files and create a DMG of them you can then use the FEU/FUT option on the file in Casper Admin when you upload the file to get Casper to put them in the end users folder.
Hrm... there should be a number of ways to do this and I haven't tried most of them. Have you given the "User Elements" section of Composer a shot? Obviously this can be scripted but I like nice simple solutions where possible. Bear in mind that I have no idea if FUT or FET works on the sidebar.plist.
