How to Deploy a Client with Kandji

Configuring Kandji to distribute the Twingate Client

Prerequisites

To distribute the Twingate macOS and iOS Clients with Kandji, you will first need to add the Twingate Client app to Apple Business Manager before proceeding with the steps below.

1. Locate the Twingate Client in Kandji

1.1. Connect to Kandji.

1.2. Select “Library” in the sidebar.

1.3. Find the Twingate Client app for macOS and/or iOS and select it.

2. Configure Kandji to pre-populate your Twingate tenant name (optional)

Pre-populating your Twingate tenant name in Twingate Clients distributed by Kandji means that end users will not need to manually enter that name in the Client. To pre-populate your Twingate tenant name, configure Kandji to push a local file containing a custom configuration to devices.

3. Remove manually installed Twingate Clients

If any end users manually installed the Twingate Client on their device prior to implementing Client distribution with Kandji, you should uninstall those Clients first. If you do not do so, those end users will be prompted for their Apple ID and password whenever a new version of the Twingate Client becomes available in the Apple App Store.

To remove manually installed Clients, set up a temporary policy defined specifically to remove the Twingate Client application from all devices. This policy should be deactivated once you are ready to roll out the Twingate Client via Kandji.

4. Complete the roll out

You should now be ready to roll out the Twingate Client application to all devices via Kandji.
