This article is intended to fulfill the need to run a script upon login using Addigy's Custom Software. For information on creating Custom Software check out our Creating Custom Software KB article.

To set up a script to run at login, you will need to create either a Launch Daemon or a Launch Agent. A Launch Daemon will run the script as root, while a Launch Agent will run as the logged-in user. This is determined on which folder the settings defined by the property list, also known as a .plist, is copied to:

/Library/LaunchDaemon = run as root

/Library/LaunchAgents = run as logged-in user

Your Custom Software will need two files:

1. The script that you want to run at login

2. The previously mentioned .plist

To create the .plist copy this text and save it as a .plist.

  Note: Make sure the Program key's string, has the correct path to the script, in this case take the directory of the Custom Software /Library/Addigy/packages/MapNetworkDriveLogin (1.0.0) and then add the .sh file to the end, which in the case of this as seen at the bottom of the article, would be

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" ""> <plist version="1.0">










For the Installation Script of the Custom Software, you will need to change the permission of the script, move the files to either /Library/LaunchDaemon or /Library/LaunchAgents, and then finally load the plist. 

This is what the Installation Script will look like. 

  Note: Replace Name_of_Script, Name_of_Property_List.plist, and which folder to move the .plist to:

 #Change permission of the script

chmod +x ./

#Move the files to their appropriate directory

cp /Library/Addigy/
cp Name_of_Property_List.plist /Library/LaunchAgents/

#Load the .plist

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/Name_of_Property_List.plist

This is what the finished Custom Software will look like. In this example I set up a Launch Agent that will mount a network drive to the device:

Additional: The contains this code:

open "smb://username:password@Server/path/to/folder"
