Does anyone know how to use Jamf to have MAU automatically run and update Microsoft software without any interaction? I was trying to see if there is a schema available for MAU, however, haven't found any. My goal is to set the channel to "Current Channel", then, have it set to download and install the updates automatically. Thanks!
@bcbackes You'd need to set the settings via a configuration profile. All the keys are available here but essentially it'd look something like this. One of the keys you can set is to force it to keep updated, if that's your goal.
<key>PayloadContent</key> <array> <dict> <key>PayloadContent</key> <dict> <key>com.microsoft.autoupdate2</key> <dict> <key>Forced</key> <array> <dict> <key>mcx_preference_settings</key> <dict> <key>ChannelName</key> <string>Production</string> <key>DisableInsiderCheckbox</key> <true/> <key>HowToCheck</key> <string>AutomaticDownload</string> </dict> </dict> </array> </dict> </dict>
Or you could script/jamf policy run command one of the options from
/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/Microsoft AutoUpdate.app/Contents/MacOS/msupdate
and just update specific apps/specific versions.
@bcbackes There is a built-in Microsoft maintained schema for MAU and their other apps. In JPS 10.26 it's under the External Applications subsection of the Application & Custom Settings profile payload. The source is Repository, then choose your desired Application Domain, Version, Variant.
