Install the PingID desktop app using the command line. This is useful for deploying on multiple machines in batch mode.

Note:

Running the installer from a Terminal window requires administrator permissions.

  1. Download the installer for the PingID desktop app from the PingID desktop download page.
  2. Open a Terminal window and enter the following command.
    sudo installer -pkg <installer package filepath> -target <installation destination filepath> /
    • <installer package filepath> is the downloaded installer package's full filepath.
    • <installation destination filepath> is the full filepath location that will host the PingID desktop app installation with its initial configuration.
    sudo installer -pkg $HOME/Downloads/PingID.pkg -target /Applications /

    This command uses the PingID desktop app installer package downloaded to the default Downloads directory and installs it in the Applications directory.

  3. When prompted, enter the administrator password.
The PingID desktop app is silently installed, using the application defaults. A message displays indicating the installation is successful.
