Escalating Privileges in Mac

This applies to Mac’s with Kandji installed


Due to increased need for more secure Mac’s, users are no longer administrators on their computers. There are some tasks that could be done that do not require the assistance of the GMC helpdesk. We have provided a way to temporarily escalate your privileges to administrator level.


In your apps look for and open “Privileges”


Select “Request privileges”


That is, it. You now have administrator privileges for the next 15 minutes. If you are trying to change something that was set through Kandji it will be reversed the next time Kandji checks in to the network.
