App Store App Update Settings

Jamf Pro allows you to configure settings to update all App Store apps and apps purchased in volume (including custom apps and apps offered as a Universal Purchase) in Jamf Pro and on mobile devices. You can use the App Updates settings in Jamf Pro to do the following:

  • Schedule automatic app updates—You can schedule automatic app updates for all App Store apps and apps purchased in volume. This automatically updates app descriptions, icons, and versions in Jamf Pro. This update happens once a day depending on the time of day you specify.

  • Automatically force apps to update—You can automatically force all App Store apps and apps purchased in volume to update on mobile devices. This update happens automatically every time devices check in with Jamf Pro.

  • Manually force apps to update—You can manually force all App Store apps and apps purchased in volume to update immediately on mobile devices if there are updates available in Jamf Pro. This update only applies to managed apps. For more information, see Understanding Managed Apps.

Note: Jamf Pro also allows you to enable an automatic app update and force an update for an individual App Store app or apps purchased in volume. For more information, see App Store Apps.
