Updating individual apps

The App Catalog is designed to update as many apps as possible, both managed and unmanaged apps and as automated as possible. However, some organizations may only want to update certain predefined apps due to several reasons. The App Catalog provides support by following these instructions:

  • Make sure to disable the update schedule by setting UpdateInterval to 0 or exclude from the Configuration Profile

  • Use the Catalog Agent to periodically check for an individual app update for a given Bundle Identifier:

sudo catalog -i BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER --update-action

This approach can be used in a script combined with all the apps your organization would like to update and triggered using a task or policy from your MDM or management solution.
