Software Update Servers

Adding an internal software update server to Jamf Pro is the first step to running Software Update from an internal software update server using a policy.

Using an internal software update server allows you to reduce the amount of bandwidth used when distributing software updates from Apple. Instead of each computer downloading updates from Apple’s Software Update server, updates are only downloaded from Apple once per server.

Using an internal software update server also allows you to control and approve updates before you make them available.
