Set App's Camera Permission

Hi Support,

May I push a policy to control device's camera permission.

We want to let some app has camera access privilege, and other apps hasn't.

How can I achieve this policy.

Thanks.

@Ahan as far, as I know, there is no way to push privileges for camera access, because the user have to grant the access at his own. Access to the camera and screen mirroring or recording must be granted by default by the user. This is a security rule from Apple.

As I know, MDM can control camera access privilege (allowCamera property): https://developer.apple.com/documentation/devicemanagement/restrictions

allowCamera (boolean)

If false, disables the camera, and its icon is removed from the Home screen. Users are unable to take photographs. This restriction is deprecated on unsupervised devices and will be supervised only in a future release.  Available in iOS 4 and later, and macOS 10.11 and later.

 

Can JAMF control camera access privilege to let some app has camera access privilege, and other apps hasn't ?
