Viewing macOS Clients
The macOS Clients can be viewed in the Management Tool in the list of Clients displayed in the grid (along with any Windows and Linux Clients) on the Client Management page.
If the user has the administrative Client Installation and Management permission, they will be able to see all the Clients. Otherwise, they will only see those Clients which they have at least one Client permission for.
The list of Clients displayed in the grid contains the following information in the corresponding columns:
• Client Name: The name of the Client, along with a colored circle icon indicating whether the Client is online (), offline ( ), or experiencing some issue ( ), as well as a red up arrow ( ) icon if it is not updated.
NOTE: If at least one Client is experiencing any issue, the orange exclamation mark () icon is also displayed next to the Client Management navigation link on the left.
• OS – License: An icon showing the Client’s operating system, along with the type of license assigned to the Client.
