Privilege Management for Mac Policies

A Privilege Management for Mac policy is built up with the following optional components:

  • Workstyles: A Workstyle is part of a policy. It's used to assign Application Rules for users. You can create Workstyles using the WorkStyle Wizard or by importing them.
  • Application Groups: Application Groups are used by Workstyles to group applications together to apply certain Privilege Management for Mac behavior.
  • Messages: Messages are used by Workstyles to provide information to the end user when Privilege Management for Mac has applied certain behavior you have defined and needs to notify the end user.

Using .MPKG (multiple package) format or launching multiple .PKG files at once is not supported and is blocked by Privilege Management for Mac.

Mac Policies are not applied to the root user.
