MakeMeAdmin.sh was created inorder to esure that a user that has the rights to be a local admin on their mac doesn't try to become an admin on other systems.

This script will accomplish the following:

  • Check to See if Self Service User is the same as the one assigned to this computer in the JSS
  • If so, will grant the local user currently login in admin rights
  • If not, will get a prompt that this computer is not assigned to them

In order for this script to work effectively you will need to have Login enabled for Self Service and will need to add the JSS API User account & Password to script variables $4 & $5 in the JSS, as well as enter the jssURL below.

Exit Code Descriptions:

  • exit 1 - User Running Policy Doesn't Match User Assigned in JSS
  • exit 2 - No JSS User Assigned in JSS
  • exit 3 - JSS is not Accessible
  • exit 5 - Unknown Error

Requirements:

  • Must specify the JSS URL
  • JSS Username and Password must be specified in Policy
  • The Username stored in User & Location within the computer object must match the username of the user logging into Self Service
