Intro to configuring devices automatically in Apple Configurator on Mac
There are many reasons to automate device configuration:
You may want to fully configure and enroll devices into a mobile device management (MDM) solution before users get their devices.
You may want to set up the configuration process for several Apple Configurator 2 workstations across a large physical area.
You may want to control exactly how the configuration process takes place and not want any reconfiguration of your process.
No matter what your motivation, you’ll find that Apple Configurator 2 provides a deep level of granularity for automating configurations using the following features:
Blueprints: Blueprints let you record actions that can be applied to actual devices.
Automator actions: Apple Configurator 2 contains several Automator actions, so you can create your own workflows and apps.
Command-line tool: Apple Configurator 2 can install its own command-line tool, named
cfgutil, which can be used in shell scripts to automate configuration.
