Edit the Parameters inside a Blueprint

Changing the Parameters inside Blueprints is easy. However, it is essential to understand how changes to a Blueprint will affect Macs enrolled before moving doing so.

Changes on enrolled Macs

Any computer enrolled in a specific blueprint will check-in with Kandji's servers every 15 minutes to get the most recent parameters to enforce. After saving changes to a Blueprint, all Macs enrolled will automatically implement the changes during their next check-in.

Changes that require a restart

If a parameter results in the Mac needing to be restarted, a 5-minute timer will start on the users Mac. If the user does nothing, the Mac will reboot itself after 5 minutes has passed.

  2. Click on the Blueprints link on the left side of the screen.
