When I set a Login Item in the Items area within a Configuration Profile and save it it disappears when I go back into the setting. Has anyone else seen this type of behavior? Running JSS 8.6.
Confirmed. Anything I add in under the Login Items section of a profile doesn't appear to be saved, at least not in the graphical sense. It shows 1 payload configured, but there is nothing there. Seems like a bug to me.
So far I've been using options that come in JSS 8.6 for Configuration Profiles with 10.8 and they appear to be working to me. Successfully added wireless profile and settings for gatekeeper. Does anything appear in your computers inventory records under management history about the status of a deployed payload?
Just because the payload is there doesn't mean it applied properly. Did you verify what your JSS web inventory record stated? With the MDM Enrollment profile in System Preferences are they in green saying "verified?"
Of course!!! It worked for the first time ever. Post imaging it should kick off automatically right? Like during Login settings will apply or do you need to launch it with a JAMF Verb post imaging?
I've pinged some screenshots to support as well as my profiles..
I'm started to think that we should use Config profiles for only what they show in the GUI.. anything outside = MCX (still) or scripts/launch agents...
Any further news on this? I'm running 8.6.1, but I'm seeing the same behavior with login items. One item is working, one is not. It worked when I first built the profile. But has since stopped. On the JSS, if I go into the configuration profile, the items (they are Applications, but I added them as "Items") show under Applications and the path to the app is blank. Everything looks normal on the client in the Profiles section. It shows both apps and locations. However, going into the login items section of a user account will show the working application and a "Unknown" application (the application that is not working). I did check the login application when it first worked and all was good. If I rebuild it all I get it to work, but it then does the same thing again.
Any update on this? We have a few items / applications that we set to launch on login, but as soon as you save, it moves the item up to the Applications section and it displays as a blank entry. Is there a way to edit the pull down list of applications so that you can add custom entries and not have to worry about typing them into the Items section?
I can't say I've seen the exact behavior, however I have seen other settings within the Configuration Profiles dialog that "don't stick" when you leave the view. For example, "Use Network Authentication" in a Network payload for 802.1X auth. I suggest you report it to JAMF support if you haven't.
I'm seeing the same behaviour with setting non-Apple applications as login items in the 'items' section. They get moved to the Applications section but are blanked!!
How are we supposed to launch 3rd party apps at login via profile config?
The bug is still present in Jamf Pro 10.9.
If a macOS Configuration Profile with a "Login Items" payload is created and an "Item" is added for an app (e.g. /Applications/Firefox.app), the respective entry is invisible after clicking "Save". However, it is still saved and correctly applied when the Configuration Profile is deployed.
Beginning with DisplayLink 1.4 the "autostart" function can be managed using defaults (Configuration Profile).
