Maybe I am seeing this wrong but in Jamf Pro under patch management you see the latest mac patch that came out yesterday 9/14/21 but you have to manually add the package for this patch? Is this how others are patching for mac os updates?

There is no full installer for 11.6, imo it should be 11.5.3 but thats for another discussion.

@mordeeb Check out - https://github.com/bp88/JSS-Scripts/blob/master/AppleSoftwareUpdate.sh

 

Super easy to use & push the end user to the software updates in a pinch. Can't wait for Monterey!

 

I patch macos a little differently, the moment the os is released I download a full installer, package the installer with megapkgr, deploy the full installer, once jamf sees the full installer was deployed to the end user machines, it kicks off a prompt allowing the end user to defer for a certain period of time (OR NOT! Depending on Security) then when times up or if its a forced update, a script is triggered and runs from jamf to install the macos silently.
