Introducing Updated Blueprints, Multifactor Authentication, and More

Posted on March 12, 2021

The Kandji team is excited to announce updated Blueprint templates to support our transition from parameters to Library items. We are also releasing multifactor authentication (MFA) and two new Auto Apps: RingCentral and Fellow.

In case you missed it, we also recently released SSO, new Self Service features, and more.

 

Updated Blueprints

Kandji has updated our Blueprint templates for Kandji Level 1-4 as well as CIS Level 1 and 2 to support our transition from parameters to Library items.

All deprecated parameters have been removed from the Blueprint templates and have been replaced with their modern Library item equivalents to support macOS Big Sur.

CIS Level II Scored Blueprint

Learn more about our parameter transitions in our knowledge base article.

Please note that this won't update any existing Blueprints generated from these templates previously.

 

Multifactor Authentication

Today’s release also enables multifactor authentication (MFA) for administrators. 

With MFA in place, when admins log in to Kandji with an email/password combination, they must then verify their identity with a one-time code. MFA doesn’t apply to users who authenticate via Google, Office 365, or a Single Sign-on connection

Multifactor authentication one-time password

Initializing MFA is simple: You log into your Kandji account as usual, then scan a QR code with a compatible one-time password (OTP) application such as Google Authenticator, Microsoft Authenticator, or OneLogin Protect. You then complete setup in your OTP app.

 

New Auto Apps: RingCentral, Fellow

Based on customer feedback, we have also added two new Auto Apps: RingCentral and Fellow. View our support article for the complete list of Auto Apps, and stay tuned for more Auto Apps coming soon.
