(Mac) Commands Tab Policy - Software Update Enforcement


Using the Commands Tab, many administrative users will deploy scripts and commands to further their ability for systems management using JumpCloud.  In working with a varied audience of users and environments, we have collaborated to create some "Policy" commands for purposes ranging from security to software management.

The commands listed in this article are specific to forcing Mac systems to either install all available software updates or only recommended updates.



Create a new command and select Mac as the Type. The Run As: user needs to be root or a passwordless sudoer. Enter the rest of the desired details and one of the following in the Command: 

Note for 10.13.4 append 'R' to options so the system will reboot automatically to complete installation if required.

To force All appropriate updates:

softwareupdate -iva

To force Only recommended updates:

softwareupdate -irv
