privilages for accounts in the JSS


Hi Guys,

I need to create a JSS user who can image computers but i dont want to give it any more privileges than needed, can you tell me what privileges I need to grant a user so they can image a mac via casper imaging from the client but dont need to do anything else.

In the account privileges tab, you're looking for the "Casper Imaging"
section (see attached screenshot). The options seem fairly straightforward
as to what they do, just be sure to grant permission for specific actions
that may be part of your workflow, such as binding to AD.
I'm not sure if you'd need to grant Inventory search permissions to allow
the user to search machines within the Casper Imaging app. If no one else
chimes in on this, it would be easy enough to test.
