security patching with Jamf

New Contributor III

hey all - just wanted to see what everyone is doing in their environment for patching your machines once Apple has released their security updates.

I've personally had "iffy" experience at best with trying to automate through check-in, deferral package restarts.

Better experience by using Self Service patching.

I want to "force" these updates on users who don't choose to use Self Service (even though i know it's not ideal)

Weekly reboot cycle (overnight). Scope a policy to all machines to force software update an hour or two ahead of the reboot.

Simple and effective.
