CN - Mac - Approve the MDM Profile


  • How do I approve the MDM profile to allow Community Network to push software updates?


  • Oregon State University
  • Community Network
  • macOS


Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a customized profile that allows Community Network to ensure Mac computers are up-to-date and secure.


Note: The following steps can be completed by any account on the computer and do not require admin privileges.

  1. Go to System Preferences < Profiles.
  2. If the MDM profile has not been approved, you will see "MDM Profile" with a triangular yellow shield on it.
  3. Click on MDM Profile.
  4. In the right hand pane of the window you should see an "Approve..." button.
    • Click on Approve... 
    • If you don't see the option to "approve" you may have already completed this step.
  5. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to approve the MDM Profile; click Approve.

The MDM profile is now allowed.
