  • Mac OS: All Supported Versions


  • Sensor Groups Configured for Mac OS **(See Additional Notes for further qualification)
  • Auto-Assign Enabled for Mac Sensors
  • No Mac Sensors Auto-Assigned


Unsupported Mac Sensor Version


Release of the 3.2 Mac Sensor - This Mass Sensor Management Feature (Auto-Assign), is NOT currently supported with the Mac Sensor, until the release of v3.2 (expected sometime September '18)

Additional Notes

  • When attempting to Auto-assign Mac Sensors to Sensor Groups, this does not apply
  • Unfortunately, the Console gives no indication that this feature is currently not supported on any currently released Mac Sensors

  • **Only the AD/LDAP criteria for Sensor Groups is impacted. Assignment based on OS and Device name criteria should work prior to the 3.2 sensor.

          Group Criteria that works with All Sensor versions:


          Device Name


          Group Criteria that works with Windows sensor 3.1+/Mac sensor 3.2+

          Active Directory Organizational Unit

          Active Directory Domain

          Active Directory Distinguished Name
