Remove red badge icon on System Preferences dock item. Mojave

Remove the pesky red badge by pushing a custom config with the following settings.

com.apple.systempreferences

<dict> <key>AttentionPrefBundleIDs</key> <integer>0</integer> </dict>

Since we are controlling Software Update we need to prevent the badge icon on System Preferences each time a new update is available. Our policy is to hold off on all updates for 2 weeks after their release.

Are there any better ways to handle this?

Also still looking for a way to keep Mojave from bothering users with those badges in the Dock and System prefs. It's a bit like wack-a-mole with them, you get one off then another one pops up, and it all gets reset when there are new updates.
