We are in the process of removing local admin rights for users machines. We are trying to figure out how to install command line tools, such as xcode, from self service. The issue we are foreseeing is authentication. We want to write scripts to take care of these installs and wanted to see if anybody else has dealt with something like this and may have some tips.

We download the Installer .pkg from the Developer page here:
And push it out via a Policy.

We are installing XCode using the Mac Apps (i.e. VPP) to keep it updated automatically. Have you found problems with compatibility by deploying the CLTs manually?

I do the same as @awoodbury, since it's free to set up a basic Apple developer account that has access to all the downloads for Xcode, command line tools and others.
