Mac Agent - BETA

Disclaimer:


The Mac agent is under active beta.  The agent has been internally tested, but may be limited in functionality and contain bugs.  If you discover any issues, please report them to our support team.



Requirements:


Mac OSX 10.15.7 or greater – Currently the agent has been designed for OSX Catalina & Big Sur, earlier versions may work but are not officially supported.

Safari – Currently Safari is the only browser supported by the Augmentt Discovery Agent for Mac.



Instructions:


Step 1 - Download the agent


Go To your Augmentt Dashboard and under Configuration Tab click on Data.



On the Data page the Agent tab is the default landing page. On the top right of the page is the button to select what Agent version you want to download. Click on it and then select the Mac Version. The download should begin automatically.


On the same page copy the license key for that company to use in a later step


Step 2 - Enable admin rights

Once the Agent zip file has been downloaded open up Terminal and run the below command

sudo –s


The admin rights are to enable the agent to be able to autonomously push the data to your Augmentt account for the users Saas history, add the files to the users Library and for chmod command execution

Step 3 - Navigate to the downloaded folder within terminal



Step 4 – Run the following commands

chmod +x *.*



If you have any previous install, run ./cleanup.sh


./install_agent.sh <LICENSE KEY FROM STEP 1>



Step 5 - Confirm that “Full Disk Access” has been given to the agent under the Privacy Tab within the Security & Privacy Settings menu


At this point the agent should be making its first push to Augmentt with the Saas usage of the user. The agent will make a push every time the service is started and from there every 6 hours afterwards.


To remove the Agent from the machine, navigate to the folder from the zip and run the cleanup command again

./cleanup.sh
