Kandji Kandji

Kandji is an MDM for Apple devices. There are two primary components to Kandji: the Kandji web app and Kandji’s proprietary macOS Agent. The web app is used to configure, review, and report settings on enrolled devices.
The Kandji Agent enforces settings, remediates discrepancies, and reports data back to the web app.
Both components also have many other capabilities.

Creating a Kandji connection

To create the connection you need:

  • An API token
  • An API address

Obtaining the credentials

Kandji uses instance-level bearer tokens to control access to the API.

  1. Log in and click Settings.

  2. Click Access.

  3. Click Add API Token to create a new API key.



  4. Provide a Name and a Description for your API token.

  5. Click Create.


  6. Kandji will display a modal with the API token. Click the visibility symbol to expose it or use the Copy Token button to copy the API token to your clipboard, storing it in a safe place. You will not be able to see the token details again.

  7. Click Next.


  8. Click Configure to manage the API permissions for this specific token or Skip to change them later.


  9. After making your modifications, click Save.


  10. Once you create your first token, you will see your instance-specific API URL.
