Hi,

I'm using Jamf Pro (10.50.0-t1693149930} and I was wondering if someone can guide me to creating a configuration profile to block or prevent the "InstallDefender" from installing with Office 365. Any other suggestion affective suggestion is welcome.

Thanks in advance.

A plist that looks like this should cover it.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
  <dict>
    <key>InstallDefender</key>
    <false/>
  </dict>
</plist>

@Jose_Amaya If you don't feel like you're great at creating .plist files for configuration profiles, use Xcode (free) or another plist specific app ($$$) - such as PLIST Editor. Those apps can handle the formatting for you, as well as usually provide handy interfaces for defining values (drop down, etc). Makes it very easy.
