Inspect a user account in Apple School Manager
You can inspect specific Managed Apple IDs. Your organisation can grant you inspection privileges for accounts that are below you in the school’s hierarchy. For example, instructors can monitor only students. Administrators can inspect not only students, but also instructors and managers.
As an authorised user wanting to inspect a Managed Apple ID, you must create temporary inspection credentials for that ID within Apple School Manager. You can use these credentials only to access that specific Managed Apple ID. During that period, you can access the user’s content stored in iCloud Drive or in CloudKit-enabled apps. Every request for access is logged in Apple School Manager. Logs show your name (as inspector), the Managed Apple ID in question, the time of the request and whether or not the inspection was performed. To discourage misuse of inspections by a single user, all users with the proper inspection privileges can view these access logs.
