Setup Your Mac (1.10.1) via swiftDialog

Now available: SYM-Helper

A stand-alone macOS app to help MacAdmins more easily deploy Setup Your Mac

Update: 01-Nov-2023

Take an under-the-hood look at Setup Your Mac (1.13.0)


New in Setup Your Mac (1.10.0), Dynamic Download Estimates leverage the built-in macOS networkQuality binary to provide end-users with approximate Configuration durations, based on the actual speed of their specific Internet connection (which can aid end-users in selecting their preferred Configuration).

Additionally, MacAdmins will appreciate the newly added Slack and Microsoft Teams integration, Streamlined Customization and more, making SYM 1.10.0 one of the most significant upgrades yet.

Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) screencast (02:11; no audio; edited for time)

Introduction

Apple’s Automated Device Enrollment helps streamline Mobile Device Management (MDM) enrollment and device Supervision during activation, enabling IT to manage enterprise devices with “zero touch.”

Setup Your Mac aims to simplify initial device configuration by leveraging swiftDialog and Jamf Pro Policy Custom Events to allow end-users to self-complete Mac setup post-enrollment.

New Features in SYM 1.10.0

Dynamic Download Estimates

Help your end-users know when their new Macs will be ready with Dynamic Download Estimates, powered by the built-in macOS networkQuality binary. (Heavy lifting provided by none other than Bart Reardon.)

Slack and Microsoft Teams Integration

With Setup Your Mac (1.10.0), it’s easy to keep your entire team up-to-date on successful executions — or failures — by leveraging the new Slack or Microsoft Teams integration.

Simply provide an incoming webhook URL as Parameter 10 in your Jamf Pro policy. (Thanks big bunches, @robjschroeder and @iDrewbs!)

Recon Validation

? Breaking Change for users of Setup Your Mac prior to 1.10.0 ?

Added recon validation, which must be used when specifying the recon trigger.

In SYM 1.9.0, as currently used in policyJSON, the trigger of recon isn’t technically a “trigger,” as it’s leveraging a built-in function of the jamf binary.

Additionally, in version 1.9.0, the validation of None is now  required to actually update inventory, which isn’t obvious.

Issue No. 19

Upgrading SYM

A dedicated post about how MacAdmins using previous versions of Setup Your Mac can upgrade to the latest version is also now available.

Implementation

While Setup Your Mac was originally designed to be executed only via a Jamf Pro Self Service policy, version 1.5.1 introduced additional checks to better execute with the Jamf Pro “Enrollment Complete” policy trigger.

Prior to using Setup Your Mac, we were using Jamf Pro policies triggered by enrollmentComplete (i.e., “Enrollment Complete Immediately after a computer completes the enrollment process”), but the successful execution of these policies was too unreliable for our needs.

Policies with an Enrollment Complete trigger do not run upon completion of enrollment under certain circumstances.

Jamf Pro Known Issues PI100009 - PI-004775

Currently — as can be observed in the first several seconds of the Setup Your Mac screencast — a device is initially considered as “non-compliant” and is only offered two policies:

  1. Setup Your Mac
  2. Update Computer Inventory

The successful execution of Setup Your Mac results in a compliant Mac.

Additionally, we require login to Self Service — including Multi-Factor Authentication — for every other policy; enabling Setup Your Mac at Enrollment Complete would bypass the required user login on the very first policy the user experiences. (See also: Setup Your Mac, please.)

PreStage Enrollments

Thanks to Robert Schroeder for the excellent write-up on using Setup Your Mac with Jamf Pro PreStage Enrollments.

Prerequisites

If the core functionality of Setup Your Mac meets your needs, writing code should not be required.

However, you must be comfortable modifying scripts before implementing this approach in production (i.e., customizing existing settings for your use-case, reading and editing JSON, etc.).

The Jamf Training Catalog, which is free to all Jamf customers, is a great place to start learning the basics.

Configuration

Complete the following steps to provide your users a seamless post-enrollment experience when setting up their new Macs.

A. Conduct a dry-run of the Setup Your Mac script

Complete the following steps on a virtual machine or non-production physical Mac.

  1. Open the macOS Terminal.
  2. Download the latest production version of Setup Your Mac using the following command. (The script will be saved to your Downloads folder as Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-reference.bash):
curl -o ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-reference.bash https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dan-snelson/Setup-Your-Mac/main/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog.bash
  1. Execute the Setup Your Mac script using the following command:
bash ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-reference.bash
  1. Observe the output (i.e., PRE-FLIGHT CHECK: This script must be run as root; exiting.)

Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) introduces Dynamic Download Estimates

New in Setup Your Mac (1.10.0), Dynamic Download Estimates leverage the built-in macOS networkQuality binary to provide end-users with approximate Configuration durations, based on the actual speed of their specific Internet connection; these estimates can aid end-users in selecting their preferred Configuration.

To help MacAdmins provide their users accurate estimates, Setup Your Mac records various values to its log file:

  • Individual Elapsed Time (for each listitem in a Configuration’s policyJSON)
  • Starting and ending Disk Space
grep "Elapsed Time" /var/log/org.churchofjesuschrist.log

To leverage Dynamic Download Estimates, ensure the configurationDownloadEstimation variable is set to true.

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #
# Configuration Download Estimation
# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

configurationDownloadEstimation="true"  # [ true (default) | false ]

Enter the value for each Configuration — total file size (in gigabytes) multiplied by 7.451 — for the following variables:

  • configurationCatchAllSize
  • configurationOneSize
  • configurationTwoSize
  • configurationThreeSize

The correctionCoefficient variable allows for a “fudge factor” to help improve estimation accuracy.

# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #
# Configuration Download Estimation
# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

configurationDownloadEstimation="true"  # [ true (default) | false ]
correctionCoefficient="1.01"            # "Fudge factor" (to help estimate match reality)
configurationCatchAllSize="34"          # Catch-all Configuration in Gibibits (i.e., Total File Size in Gigabytes * 7.451) 
configurationOneSize="34"               # Configuration One in Gibibits (i.e., Total File Size in Gigabytes * 7.451) 
configurationTwoSize="62"               # Configuration Two in Gibibits (i.e., Total File Size in Gigabytes * 7.451) 
configurationThreeSize="106"            # Configuration Three in Gibibits (i.e., Total File Size in Gigabytes * 7.451) 

To determine what value to specify for each Configuration Size-related variable, execute your customized Setup Your Mac script on a physical test Mac for your largest Configuration.

Once completed, make note of total duration and disk space:

grep "Elapsed Time" $scriptLog

grep "Disk Space" $scriptLog

Configuration Download Estimation Tester

Thanks to TechTrekkie for contributing Configuration-Download-Estimation-Tester.bash.

This will allow you to quickly view and tweak the download estimates without having to re-run your Setup-Your-Mac script until you achieve the desired output and copy the configuration parameter values to your Setup-Your-Mac script

C. Testing Tips

Simulating Failures

When testing Setup Your Mac on an enrolled Mac, you may not observe any failures, even though that’s what you want.

Temporarily replacing instances of Info.plist with Info.plist.failed can easily simulate failures.

Simulate failures by replacing Info.plist with Info.plist.failed

Completion Actions

While Debug Mode can prove helpful during initial testing, eventually you’ll want to test-drive real-world scenarios (and, as you can imagine, testing forced-restarts includes some inherent inconvenience).

A trick I stumbled on is to first launch Terminal and elevate to root prior to testing. With an elevated Terminal, you’ll first be prompted for confirmation to forcibly quit Terminal, which you can cancel and continue testing.

Note: In Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 or later), the default completion actions now leverage the shutdown binary which negates this trick; toggle code comments as required:

"Restart Attended" )
    updateScriptLog "Restart, requiring user-interaction"
    killProcess "Self Service"
    wait
    # runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart'
    # sleep 5 && runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart' &
    sleep 5 && shutdown -r now &
    ;;

Unexpected Computer Inventory Delay

While testing via Terminal, you may observe the Computer Inventory step taking longer than expected.

Type Command k to quit the active dialog and you may find Terminal is requesting access to any number of user-specific items.

After responding to each access request, proceed with your testing.

D. Review the default Welcome dialog

Video

Organizations which do not need to capture any user input can display a video by specifying video for welcomeDialog (Parameter 6).

Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) set to video
Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) set to video

Note: When welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) is set to video or false, the “catch-all” policyJSON will be used in the Setup Your Mac dialog.

* ) # Catch-all (i.e., used when `welcomeDialog` is set to `video` or `false`)

    policyJSON='
    {
        "steps": [
            {

User Input

Specify userInput for welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) to capture user input.

Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) set to userInput
Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) welcomeDialog (Parameter 6) set to userInput

Fields

The input fields in the “Welcome” dialog are enabled by setting the following variables to true (and disabled by setting the same variables to false):

  • promptForUsername
  • promptForComputerName
  • promptForAssetTag
  • promptForRoom
  • promptForConfiguration
# # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # # #

Completion Actions (Parameter 7)

In addition to the previous wait and sleep options, Setup Your Mac (1.4.0) introduced the following Completion Action options:

Log OutRestartShut Down
 User is forcibly logged outComputer is forcibly restartedComputer is forcibly shut down
AttendedUser is forcibly logged out, after interacting with Setup Your Mac dialogsComputer is forcibly restarted, after user interacts with Setup Your Mac dialogsComputer is forcibly shut down, after user interacts with Setup Your Mac dialogs

Required Minimum Build (Parameter 8)

Help mitigate zero-day attacks by specifying a minimum OS build before Setup Your Mac can be completed.

In the following example, the operating system of the testing computer is older than macOS 13.2 (22D49), and the user observes an error message to update:

Use the following table as a guide to determine your organization’s preferred value for Required Minimum Build:

VersionBuildRequired
Minimum
Build
14.3.123D6023D
14.323D5623D
14.2.123C7123C
14.123B7423B
14.023A34423A
13.6.122G31322G
12.7.121G92021G

Outdated OS Action (Parameter 9)

Determine what should happen when a user runs your customized Setup Your Mac policy on a computer with an outdated version of macOS (as determined by the value entered for Required Minimum Build):

Jamf Pro Policy

To open Jamf Pro’s Self Service to a specific policy:

  1. Navigate to the policy in Jamf Pro
  2. Click Self Service
  3. Scroll down to the Policy URLs section
  4. Copy the desired URL
  5. Paste the copied URL in Outdated OS Action (Parameter 9)

Open Software Update

To open Software Update, enter the following for Outdated OS Action (Parameter 9):
/System/Library/CoreServices/Software Update.app

Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 and later) Outdated OS Action Policy Script Parameters

Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 and later) Outdated OS Action (01:00; no audio)

Microsoft Teams or Slack Webhook URL (Parameter 10)

Specify either a Microsoft Teams or Slack Webhook URL in Parameter 10 to keep your entire team up-to-date on both successful and failed SYM executions; leave Parameter 10 blank to disable.

Slack integration is a new feature of Setup Your Mac (1.10.0)
Slack integration is a new feature of Setup Your Mac (1.10.0)

Note: Your policyJSON must include the recon trigger and validation — most frequently as its last listitem — when leveraging Teams or Slack integration:

{
    "listitem": "Computer Inventory",
    "icon": "ff2147a6c09f5ef73d1c4406d00346811a9c64c0b6b7f36eb52fcb44943d26f9",
    "progresstext": "A listing of your Mac’s apps and settings — its inventory — is sent automatically to the Jamf Pro server daily.",
    "trigger_list": [
        {
            "trigger": "recon",
            "validation": "recon"
        }
    ]
}

Note: When debugMode is enabled, the recon trigger does not actually execute and the computerID variable will be blank, causing the “View in Jamf Pro” button to not work as expected.

H. Create a Jamf Pro Policy to Setup Your Mac
  1. Create a new Jamf Pro Policy, using the following as a guide for Options > General:
    • Set Display Name to Enrollment: Setup Your Mac (1.10.0)
    • Set Execution Frequency to Ongoing
  2. Select the Scripts payload and add your customized Setup Your Mac (1.10.0) via swiftDialog script, specifying the following Parameter Values
    • Script Log Location: /var/log/com.company.log

I. Troubleshooting
1. Welcome dialog doesn’t display

If, in your Jamf Pro policy, you’ve set Welcome dialog (i.e., Parameter 6) to userInput, but the “Welcome” dialog doesn’t display as expected, the issue is most often invalid JSON.

Please double-check the following:

  1. Confirm the “Welcome” dialog displays when the script is executed via Terminal using a freshly downloaded, timestamped copy of Setup Your Mac:
    • Enter your password when prompted
    • Confirm you observe the “Welcome” dialog
    • Click Quit
timestamp=$( date '+%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S' ) ; curl -o ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-$timestamp.bash https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dan-snelson/Setup-Your-Mac/main/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog.bash ; sudo bash ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-$timestamp.bash
  1. Re-run your customized version of Setup Your Mac and review the client-side logs for entries which contain: WELCOME DIALOG

  1. If you observe JSON Parse error in the logs, copy your entire welcomeJSON variable and paste into a new, blank document, then make the following modifications:
    • Delete welcomeJSON=' (being careful to retain the opening curly brace {)
    • Find "'" and replace with " (so the welcome-related variables will pass validation)
    • Delete the trailing single quote '
    • Validate the JSON by copying everything between the beginning and ending curly braces { … } and pasting at jsonlint.com
    • Review the displayed results and remediate as necessary until you observe Valid JSON
2. Unexpected Banner Image

If the Banner Image displayed in the “Welcome” and main “Setup Your Mac” dialogs isn’t as expected, the issue is most often an unreachable image resource.

Review the client-side logs and you’ll most likely observe the following:

2023-05-03 18:27:04 - WELCOME DIALOG: welcomeBannerImage is not available, using a default image
2023-05-03 18:27:04 - WELCOME DIALOG: bannerImage is not available, using alternative image

3. Setup Your Mac policy list doesn’t display

If the main Setup Your Mac dialog displays — but its policy list does not — the issue is most often invalid JSON in one (or more) of the Configuration-specific policyJSON variables.

Invalid JSON preventing policyJSON from displaying

Please double-check the following:

  1. Confirm the Configuration-specific Setup Your Mac policy list (i.e., policyJSON) displays when the script is executed via Terminal using a freshly downloaded, timestamped copy of Setup Your Mac:
    • Enter your password when prompted
    • Enter an Asset Tag
    • Select the Configuration you’re troubleshooting
    • Click Continue
timestamp=$( date '+%Y-%m-%d-%H%M%S' ) ; curl -o ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-$timestamp.bash https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dan-snelson/Setup-Your-Mac/main/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog.bash ; sudo bash ~/Downloads/Setup-Your-Mac-via-Dialog-$timestamp.bash
  1. Re-run your customized version of Setup Your Mac and review the client-side logs for entries which contain: JSON Parse error (Note: If the logs include a division by 0 error, there is almost certainly invalid JSON in policyJSON.)

4. Unexpected Jamf Pro Policy Execution

If your Jamf Pro policies aren’t executing as expected, complete the following steps to enable verbose policy execution:

  1. Ensure debug mode is set to false (since policies do not actually execute when debug mode is set to true)
  2. Search for and comment-out the following (shown as Line 1635 below):
    eval "${jamfBinary} policy -trigger ${trigger}"
  3. Uncomment the following (shown as Line 1636 below):
    eval "${jamfBinary} policy -trigger ${trigger} -verbose | tee -a ${scriptLog}"
  4. Re-run your customized Setup Your Mac script
  5. Review the client-side logs for the problematic policies

5. Jamf Pro Remote Policy Validation Failures
Failed?!? Ensure one of the expected keywords is returned by your Remote validation script / policy.

When troubleshooting Remote Jamf Pro Policy Validation failures, ensure one of the following expected keywords is returned by your validation script / policy (thanks, @drtaru):

Policy ResultStatus Text

6. Various Restart Completion Actions not Working as Expected

Background

Some MacAdmins using an Enrollment Complete trigger for Setup Your Mac have reported that the various “restart” Completion Actions fail to actually restart the computer after an otherwise successful execution.

Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 and later) attempts to address this issue by changing the default code for each Completion Action. (Also, each Completion Action includes alternative code options which should result in your desired behavior.)

The following are two examples from the various available Completion Actions.

Restart

The Restart Completion Action includes three options to restart the computer, shown below as lines:

  • 2045
  • 2046
  • 2047 new default in Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 and later)
"Restart" )
    updateScriptLog "Restart sans user interaction"
    killProcess "Self Service"
    # runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart'
    # sleep 5 && runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart' &
    sleep 5 && shutdown -r now &
    ;;

If the default code option of Line 2047 does not work as expected, comment it out, then uncomment either Line 2045 or Line 2046 and re-test.

Restart Attended

The Restart Attended Completion Action also includes three options to restart the computer, shown below as lines:

  • 2054
  • 2055
  • 2056 new default in Setup Your Mac (1.7.0 and later)
"Restart Attended" )
    updateScriptLog "Restart, requiring user-interaction"
    killProcess "Self Service"
    wait
    # runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart'
    # sleep 5 && runAsUser osascript -e 'tell app "System Events" to restart' &
    sleep 5 && shutdown -r now &
    ;;

If the default code option of Line 2056 does not work as expected, comment it out, then uncomment either Line 2054 or Line 2056 and re-test.

7. Quit a running dialog

Specify a key sequence to quit a running dialog:

❯ dialog --help quitkey

   --quitkey <char>

	Set dialog quit key

        Use the specified character as the command+ key combination for quitting instead of "q".
        Capitol letters can be used in which case command+shift+<key> will be required

The “main” SYM dialog can be quit by pressing the k key.

--quitkey k \

Support, Feature Requests & Bug Reports

Support

The #setup-your-mac Channel on the MacAdmins Slack and is a great resource when implementing Setup Your Mac in your environment.

“YOYO” Code

To the best of my recollection, Setup Your Mac (1.5.0) was the first time I’d publicly posted code which I considered to be knowingly incomplete and not fully tested (for the simple reason that we don’t use the additional input fields introduced in version 1.5.0 in our environment).

When you observe code blocks which include the following comment, please be aware that “you’re on your own.”

# UNTESTED, UNSUPPORTED "YOYO" EXAMPLE

Feature Requests

Submit feature requests on GitHub and please note that while all requests are welcome, finding available cycles to custom-code a feature we won’t use in our production environment is always challenging.

Bug Reports

Before submitting a Setup Your Mac bug report on GitHub, please review the open swiftDialog issues to help determine the source of the issue.

Release Cycle

For each of the last several months, an updated version of Setup Your Mac has been released (and reviewing SYM’s CHANGELOG shows it).

After counseling with multiple Apple admins, I’ve decided to slow the release cycle of SYM to allow more MacAdmins time to upgrade to 1.10.0. (However, when swiftDialog 2.2 is released, I plan to release SYM 1.11.0 to leverage its new features.)
