Hi FK,

Can you please clarify what you are trying to do. What do you mean open the installed self-service app?

If you (only) use Apps from the Apple App Store in your Self Service you will receive an "Open" button after download and installation *afair*.

For other policies you can add a postinstall script to show the app when it's completely installed (instead of opening it) - example:

open -R /Applications/Safari.app

What I want is that after installing the app from the Self Service, the button (function) changes automatically so that the user can then open the app with the button and not have to reinstall it again

Many Thanks

Why would the user need to re-install if the user already clicked the install button? Are you stating that after the user clicks the Install button, they are clicking the re-install button? Anyways, instead of having a Open button for the user to click to open the app, you can have it open automatically after the installation completes. In the same Policy create a File and Processes, under Execute Command, add open -r /Applications/nameofapp.app

Executing that should open the app automatically after the installation completes.

This only works in Self Service with Apps from the Apple App Store.
