Install PKG with additional options/switches

I'm trying to deploy apps silently. With TeamViewer it requires additional switches or options to run from the command line. How can this be done using the policy?

I would run this from the command line: sudo installer -applyChoiceChangesXML choices.xml -pkg Install TeamViewerHost.pkg -target /

@mwu1876 Jamf doesn't natively support choiceChanges (see this FR from 2015 requesting this support, and vote it up! https://www.jamf.com/jamf-nation/feature-requests/3516/support-for-choices-xml-during-package-instal...)

There are some workarounds mentioned in the FR's responses too

You can do the install you need via composer.
