Hi simo002,


the scripting module is only usable to execute shell scripts on macOS devices.


If you want to hide something like AirDrop, check the Restrictions-Payload on a profile under Profiles->Profiles in the menu. Make sure your device is assigned to a device group and the profile is assigned to the same device group.


Best regards
