If you’re working with a large team that uses macOS and Dropbox, you may want to add some payloads to a Configuration Profile to automatically enable Dropbox features such as online-only files and the Dropbox badge.
This article lists each of the different payloads and which Dropbox features they enable.
Payload for full support of online-only files on macOS 12.3 and above
Payload: Kernel Extension Policy (com.apple.syspolicy.kernel-extension-policy)
Applies to: macOS 10.14 or later
This payload enables the Dropbox Sync Engine to create online-only files. Such files rely on a Kernel Extension (kext) component to function properly.
To simplify installing this component, you may deploy a macOS installer package containing the Dropbox Kernel Extension here. In some cases, installing this component can require the end-user to reboot their device.
