Addigy Migration Guide

Migrating your macOS fleet from an existing Mobile Device Management (MDM) or Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) solution to Addigy can be a complex process, but with careful planning, it can be executed smoothly. This guide outlines the prerequisites and steps involved to facilitate a seamless transition.


  1. The ability to execute a script or PKG on the device.
  2. macOS 10.10 or higher.
  3. An active MDM tool for device migration.

  • Visit Addigy’s Add Devices page and choose a policy.
  • For the script option, copy the link from the “Install Via Terminal” section.
  • For the PKG option, download the file from the “Install Via Package” section.
  • Important Note: Avoid having two Addigy Agents installed on a device simultaneously.
