Manage Automatic mac OS and App Store Update setting


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 turning on or off automatic OS updates for Mac systems.



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:

Turn on automatic OS updates for Mac:

softwareupdate --schedule on

Turn off automatic OS updates for Mac:

softwareupdate --schedule off
