unlocking user’s screen saver as admin

https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/258055/10-12-sierra-unlock-screensaver-by-admin-via-security-authorizationdb

 

I admin a bunch of Macs, and depend on unlocking user’s screen saver as admin. I’ve always done this editing /etc/pam.d/screensaver

This no longer works. I need to do it via security authorizationdb.

I can do it with this command:

security authorizationdb write system.login.screensaver "authenticate-session-owner-or-admin"
