Incremental non OS Updates

Apple released an update for Safari and my guess is there will be Security updates shortly.

How are admins updating these?

Thanks for any help.

If the update does not require a reboot, I just use "softwareupdate -i --safari-only" in Files and Processes. It's crude but effective.

yeah that's what I decided to do.  I think I should be able to do the same with security updates once I use softwareupdate -l to find the name.

Thanks!

Ran updates remotely after hours, Computers must be setup via PreStage
Enrollment to get command to execute, install and restart:

Jamf Pro:

- Static Group (do for each group) try and scatter so not all
installing at once
- View
- Action
- Send Remote Commands
- Update OS version and built-in apps (macOS 10.11 or later,
Supervised or enrolled via a PreStage enrollment)
- Specific Version
- 12.6
- Download and install the update, and restart the computers after
installation
- Next
- Done

OR

- Individual select Computer Record
- Management
- Download and Install Updates

I have a workflow for updating macOS clients that uses full macOS installers yet misses the non-macOS specific updates, I believe.

I was actually interested in finding a way to address the non macOS updates without updating the macOS.  Or is this not possible now?

I hope that makes sense.

Thanks for any help.
