El capitan screen lock

How can I disable the screen saver password for all users? Users have to restart the mac to log in if another user forgets to log out because the "require password 5 minutes after sleep or screen saver begins" setting in the security and privacy pane in the system preferences.   This is on El capitan

From what I've read, about the only way to disable such a feature system-wide is via configuration profiles and the like.  Software such as JAMF will also give you that kind of control.

Other than those options, I think you'll have to consider messing with .plist files.  If I have time, I will investigate further to determine which pref file or equivalent might do the job, assuming it's even possible.

Thank you! I noticed that our device management software (lanrev) supports configuration profiles and we utilized them
