Third Party System Preference Panes

Hi guys,

 

I've installed a 3rd party app onto my mac called Backblaze, yet the preference pane greyed out and, I think, is blocked by the Meraki management profile:

What is the syntax of the text that needs to be entered into the Third Part System Preference Panes field (System Manager > Manage Settings > Profiles list > System Preferences > macOS System Preferences > Third Part System Preference Panes) to allow it?:

Have I formatted the name correctly or do I need to enter something else?

Thanks SoCalRacer.   

 

I tried your command but unfortunately, it didn't return anything relevant to Backblaze.

 

Nevermind though, I found out how to obtain what I needed:

 

$ defaults read /Library/PreferencePanes/BackblazeBackup.prefPane/Contents/Info CFBundleIdentifier
com.backblaze.BackblazeBackup

I inserted com.backblaze.BackblazeBackup into the Third Party System Preference Panes field, as per my first screenshot, and it worked!:

Not a Mac expert, but I believe if you run the below command it will list the packages by name and then you can use that to add to system pane.

 

pkgutil --pkgs

 

Also are you on macOS 10.14? Seems to be quite a bit of issues with that os and Backblaze.
