This article documents the permissions and privileges the Senso client requires to function properly and information about the supported permissions.


Directory permissions


The client .app file requires the following permissions to the local file system:



The installer script will apply read / write permissions to these directories automatically during install. If these permissions are modified, the app will not function correctly.



Operating system permissions


The client utilises native operating system API’s for the best experiences, this requires the app to be assigned these permissions in:




System preferences > Security and privacy


The following permissions are required by the client:


These permissions can only be granted by a user or a configuration profile, deployed through an MDM. 

There is no method for the application installer to automatically assign these permissions, once the client has been installed you must assign these permissions.


User assigned permissions


When the user runs the app, the permissions will be auto prompted by the operating system.



 Click ‘Open system preferences’. If this prompt does not appear, go to:

  1. System preferences > Security and privacy.
  2. Click the lock in the bottom left of the window.
  3. Provide an administrator user and password for the device.
  4. Click‘Unlock’.
