Profile Scope Overview for macOS devices

Profile Scope Overview

The following table provides an overview describing the context in which configured profiles are installed on managed macOS devices. Since Silverback 24.0 Update 1, the user context can be activated during DEP-based enrollment, this involves a change in the selected context of the profile installation. The overview should help to identify the differences for profile installation during DEP based enrollments if devices were enrolled before or after the update to Silverback 24.0 Update 1. Profiles marked with an could not be installed due to the user channel not being activated on DEP-enrolled macOS devices in older Silverback versions. The App Portal function marked with n.a. has been added in Silverback 24.0 Update 1.
