Workspace ONE - Creating an Eduroam Profile for macOS

This document describes the process of creating a profile in Workspace ONE that configures a macOS device to join eduroam without additional setup needed from the user.

Notes about this profile

  • Users will be prompted for a username and password upon connecting to Eduroam for the first time; these should be entered in the format '[NetID]' and '[NetID password]'.
  • Deploying this profile to users that already have an Eduroam connection will disconnect them from the Eduroam SSID and require them to re-enter their NetID password to reconnect.
  • Users with administrative rights will be able to remove the Wi-Fi profile from System Preferences if desired.
