Goodbye Custom profiles, Hello MDM Configurations.



Custom profiles have provided a way for you to installed .mobileconfig profiles to a device via the Addigy Agent for years. At WWDC 2019, we learned that the profiles install command will no longer be supported in future versions of macOS. This is why we are announcing the deprecation of Custom Profiles. 


What does this mean for my existing Custom Profiles?


Existing Custom Profiles will continue to work as usual for now, though we recommend you start moving towards one of the recommend migration paths. We will be deprecating this feature in stages.

Stage 1: Announce deprecation and add deprecation label to Custom Profiles User Interface.
Stage 2: Remove the ability to create new Custom Profiles.

Stage 3: Remove Custom Profiles from the platform entirely.



Migration Paths


Custom Profiles -> MDM Configurations (Requires Addigy MDM)

We recommend you move any .mobileconfig file deployments over to a Custom MDM Configuration. If you need help setting up MDM, its quick, simple, and our support team would be more than happy to help!

Custom Profiles -> Smart Software

In some cases you may have some software items inside of Custom profiles. We recommend you move that over to Smart Software and take advantage of all auto PPPC generation!
