Script Checks for Mac devices

To monitor your Mac devices, you can add system default script checks, or your own user defined script checks, to the devices. When you add a script check to devices, you configure the parameter values you require.

Before you can add a user defined script check to a device, the script must be uploaded to the N-sight RMM Dashboard. For instructions to upload a user defined script check, see Add a script to Script Manager.
