File Director Mac contains a shell script: AdminConfig.sh.
The script contains instructions to the macOS command line tool (defaults) to update keys in the p-list for the File Director app. For example, this command sets the server for the File Director client to connect to:
defaults write com.ivanti.filedirector server "filedirector.mycompany.com"
Each command is clearly commented with an explanation of its function and the value of the property, for example:
# Set the option to allow the user to uninstall the application to YES (default) or NO
# YES = User can uninstall File Director via the GUI, NO = User is blocked from using the GUI uninstaller to remove File Director
#defaults write com.ivanti.filedirector allowuninstallapplication -bool NO/YES
The commands, with the exception of default mappings and exclusions, are also commented out.
To use the script:
- In the File Director Mac, locate the Advanced Guide folder and open the AdminConfig.sh file.
- Uncomment the commands for the settings that you want to apply.
- Update the commands with the values for the properties as described in the comments.
Make the script executable.
For example, use the change modification command:
chmod +x <scriptname>
- Run the script and apply the settings to the users' endpoint.
