Mac App Store App Update Settings

Jamf Pro allows you to configure settings to update all Mac App Store apps in Jamf Pro and on computers that were distributed using managed distribution. 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 Mac App Store apps. 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 Mac App Store apps to update on computers. This update happens automatically every time computers check in with Jamf Pro.

  • Manually force apps to update—You can manually force all Mac App Store apps to update immediately on computers if there are updates available in Jamf Pro.

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