Hello Everyone,

If someone could help me,

We are moving all machines from one JSS to another JSS specific site. Here we have a same set of policies in the specific site of New JSS, We are also going to move the machine to same Site. So I doesn't want the packages to get installed again which is already available in the machines.
Challenges in this Policy are we doesnt want to change Frequency, Trigger and Target in Scope.

Well I tried with Exclusions by creating the smart computer group like Criteria - Application title, Operator - has, Value- application name.app/ example: Xcode.app
But there a lot of Applications it is difficult to add all the applications in the same smart group and I am not sure how does it work.

Please can any one help on this.

Try creating smart groups with criteria:

• "Packages Installed By Casper"
• "Packages Installed By Installer.app/SWU"

Keep your exclusions clean and apply that to the policy so desired Macs are excluded.
