Upcoming, Python will no longer be on macOS version 12.3. Because of this, we are updating our onboarding scripts for macOS and Linux to run over Bash instead of running over Python.
Note: If your users have already been onboarded with a Python script, they do not need to be re-onboarded.
When this will happen
Python will no longer be included or installed by default on Mac machines running macOS 12.3
How this will affect your organization
If you do not replace the script, you might not be able to onboard new Mac machines.
What you need to do to prepare
We recommend replacing your onboarding script with a new one that can be found in the Defender for Endpoint Portal.
- Manual deployment for Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on macOS
- Deploy Microsoft Defender for Endpoint on Linux manually
