Time to add some variety to the blog, so I’m starting a series of post which I’ll mix in between other more mainstream topics. I want to spend some time testing some hidden or maybe less known gems that will make your life as a macAdmin a bit easier.
And the honour for the first awesome little tool I’d like to discuss goes to: SAP – Privileges. I knew about the existence of this tool but never took the time to check it out…
So, let’s not waste any time and dive right into it!
Note: Little disclaimer from the SAP Github project page.
This project is 'as-is' with no support, no changes being made. You are welcome to make changes to improve it but we are not available for questions or support of any kind.
That said, there is no need to, as it just works as expected. Within the limitations of the design of course. Nevertheless, Rich Trouton was so friendly to point me to his own Privileges scripts and recipes to enhance the deployment! This made it even easier to use! Thanks Rich!
