I am using meraki MDM systems manager to deploy applications for are teachers. It would save me a-lot of heart ache to be able to include a terminal command or some type of software to help with automatically pinning things to the dock, so i don't have to touch each device individually thanks in advanced!!


You can use the following command (replace PATH_TO_YOUR_APP):

defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add "<dict><key>tile-data</key><dict><key>file-data</key><dict><key>_CFURLString</key><string>PATH_TO_YOUR_APP</string><key>_CFURLStringType</key><integer>0</integer></dict></dict></dict>"

This adds the application to the dock. For the change to take effect, follow this up with killall cfprefsd and killall Dock.
