It will entirely depend on what you want it to do for your environment. The most important part would be to set the required minimum OS version (requiredMinimumOSVersion). I would recommend looking through the Preferences on the wiki for anything that catches your eye on what you want:

And here is a demonstration from the last JNUC that is helpful for seeing exactly what Nudge does:

I attempted to push out Nudge to get our devices more up to date, but had to shut it down due to issues with users unable to properly update (secure tokens/false errors). Despite that, Nudge worked wonderfully, even with default values. This was my general set up:

  • Simple mode (next time around, I may not do simple mode as it wasn't enough information for the user and cause more panic than I expected)
  • Minimum OS requirement 11.5
  • Default values for timers and deferrals
  • Enabled Random Delay
  • Packaged Nudge with an image to display as the icon

Edit: corrected requiredMinimumOSVersion in first paragraph.

@AdamMayer When it comes to configuring Nudge I'd recommend leveraging @dan-snelson 's Nudge Post-install: See the Wiki link on that page for detailed instructions.

Has anyone been able to update the actual mobile config text to customize it more to fit your environment? for example it says below "your device requires a security update" and I want to change it to "your device requires a macOS update" even though I update the mobile config I never see the outcome if I run nudge. Has anyone been able to modify the text successfully?
