Mac Apps Requiring Repackaging

With the Jamf Fundamentals plan, you can deploy apps to computers with PKG files. For apps not available in a native PKG file format, you will need to repackage the app.

The list below is a collection of common Mac apps that are either available natively as a PKG file or require repackaging before you can deploy it as a PKG file with Jamf Fundamentals.
