Generic Users for shared use

New Contributor III

I'm not finding any discussion on this topic, but we are installing Mac Mini's into classrooms that will be used by multiple teachers. How do you configure a computer through Jamf for multiple users or a single generic user?

The reason we are doing this is so the Mac Mini will be hooked up to a projector and be ready for use right when the teacher starts their class eliminating issues with AirPlay, or dongles, or screen resolutions from different laptops from the previous user etc..

When you need IT...get PJ. C. Working as a tech in a private school for over 15 years.


You're just wanting one generic local user? If so that's why there isn't much discussion on Jamf Nation, it's pretty straightforward and information is available in the Jamf Pro Admin's Guide. Basically you just need to make a policy with a Local Accounts payload.
