  8. Click on "+ Add settings" and select "Wi-Fi Settings".
  9. Change ‘Proxy setup’ to ‘Automatic’.
  10. Type in the SmartPAC URL that was provided to you with support or your Sales Engineer. When adding the SmartPAC URL, Meraki MDM will require that you enter an SSID to save the Proxy URL. This doesn't have to be a real SSID, it can just be a dummy/fake SSID, this is just to make the Mac device take the Proxy settings for all wifi connections.meraki3.png
  11. Click on "+ Add settings" and select  "macOS System Preferences".
  12. Uncheck the box next to "Network" and "Profiles". This will prevent users from removing the proxy configuration and profile. meraki4.png
