How to configure a custom configuration profile in Jamf

This article applies to:

  • OS: macOS Mojave
  • Product edition: inSync Cloud Clien version 6.2 and later


This article provides the steps to create a policy in Jamf, which can provide full-disk access to the inSync Client.

Starting with Jamf Pro 10.9, configure the Privacy Preferences Policy Control profile as a separate payload in computer configuration profiles. This payload allows you to configure settings to allow or deny access to applications and services within a target computer's Security & Privacy preferences pane

Create a policy  in Jamf

  1. Login to Jamf.
  2. Under Computer tab, click Configuration Profiles > New.
  3. On the General tab:

    • Enter a profile name. (For example: inSync)
    • Set Category as ITS Tools.
    • Set Level as Computer Level.

  4. Open the Terminal and run the command:
    codesign -dr - /Applications/

  5. Under Configuration Profiles, click Privacy Preference policy Control.
  6. Set IDENTIFIER as com.druva.insync.
  7. Copy the output from the terminal starting from identifier till exists */ without quotation marks to CODE REQUIREMENT.
  8. Depending on the type of backup setup under inSync profile, add app or service.
    For example:
    # Calendar
    # SystemPolicyAllFiles
    # SystemPolicySysAdminFiles
    # AddressBook


Target this policy on one of the systems from Jamf and verify whether full disk access is provided to inSync.
