macOS Computer (Reboot, Shutdown)

Use the Tasks Reboot macOS Computer and Shutdown macOS Computer to reboot or shut down Agents running on Apple macOS. These Tasks can also be useful after the execution of a Task Execute macOS Command.

See macOS Command (Execute).


  • In the Reboot Tasks, the option Reboot computer after shutdown is enabled by default.
  • In the Shutdown Tasks, the option Reboot computer after shutdown is disabled by default.
  • With the option Wait for Agent to come back online, you can specify whether a Job should wait after a reboot with continuing with the next Task in the Job until the Agent has come back online. This option is enabled by default. It can be useful to disable the option in scenarios in which the computer on which the Agent is running switches to a different OS after a reboot and a different Agent comes online. This prevents Ivanti Automation from waiting until the original Agent comes back online.
