    MDM App Deployment


      Article summary

      Welcome

      Welcome aboard the MDM App Deployment section at Harmony SASE's Help Center!
      This guide offers you a sneak peek into this category and the must-visit resources.

      The deployment process of Harmony SASE varies depending on your MDM (Mobile Device Management) provider and is done utilizing a public app deployment process.

      If you are managing the Harmony SASE client deployment using MDM you should disable the Update client functions in the Harmony SASE Web Console to prevent looping client installation issues.

      Please note that most MDM providers use a separate user to deploy MacOS packages. In order to change the client permissions please also run in the Post-install script:
      • $ sudo chown -R $(stat -f%Su /dev/console) "/Applications/Permeter 81.app"
      • $ chmod -R u=rwx "/Applications/Perimeter 81.app"  

      Pre-populate the workspace -Agent version 8.0.4.116 and higher

      • $ sudo defaults write com.perimeter81d workspace "workspace_name"

      Replace "workspace_name" with your actual workspace.

      • $ sudo defaults delete com.perimeter81d workspace

      Pre-populate the region:

      • $ sudo defaults write com.perimeter81d region "EU or US"

      For region, add "EU" for Europe and "US" for America.

      Note:
      During installation (vanilla installation), if the region is not pre-populated, you can switch to the EU instance on the global sign in page when signing in to the Harmony SASE Agent, just as you switch workspaces. The selection is remembered for subsequent logins.
