Onboard local users

If there are local (non-domain) users, for example, users not in AD, then those users must be manually enabled before they can log into their workstation using Mac Workstation Authentication.

To onboard a local user:

  1. Log into the Mac as a local user.

  2. Click the ForgeRock icon in the top right of the menu bar.

  3. Click Enable For This User…​.

  4. Enter the user’s username in the Account field and click Next.

  5. Enter the user’s Mac credentials.

    1. If you are using the push MFA method, after you validate the Mac credentials, a notification is sent to the ForgeRock Authenticator application to approve.

    2. If you are using the OATH OTP MFA method, put the OTP code from the ForgeRock Authenticator application right after the password in this step.

      Failure to do this will result in the end user not being registered.

Mac Workstation Authentication installation/configuration checklist
