How to whitelist the Reilio Connect Agent for Mac Kernel Extensions using Jamf Pro 10.x
Starting with macOS High Sierra (10.13), after installing Resilio Connect 2.11 and newer for Mac manually or remotely, the user is prompted to approve the Resilio, Inc. kernel extensions on his Mac. Until the user approves the Resilio Inc. Kernel extensions, the Resilio Connect Transparent Selective Sync will not work correctly. For details, refer to this article.
You can pre-approve the Resilio Kernel extensions and thus eliminate user intervention by whitelisting the Resilio extensions using a Mobile Device Management tool such as Jamf Pro or others. This feature is supported starting with macOS 10.13.2 and Jamf Pro version 10.3.0 or higher.
The procedure implies creating and applying an MDM configuration profile in Jamf Pro 10.x that whitelists the Resilio kernel extensions to the target computers. Please note that the computers must have the "User Approved MDM" status.
For details about User Approved MDM, refer to these articles:
