Mac App Store Apps installing automatically

New Contributor

searched and couldn't find what anything to what im trying to do.

We have "purchased" (free) apps on the app store that are used by random people in our org so there is no static group or anything for these computers.

I have it set as Distro method = Make available in self service, i have the self service tab and vpp tab all setup... When i set the scope to all computers, it will automatically install all "purchased" copies to people.

All i want it to do is sit in the store, available to everyone and not install automatically.

Am i missing something super obvious here?
