Many software publishers provide static (non-changing) links that always point to the latest release.

As the name suggests, it always points to the latest release. You can use that URL with a Universal Installer script (like the one found here) to create a Jamf policy that never needs to be updated.
Similar static links are available for lots of other apps, but they're not always easy to find.
That's why I created this thread. It is my hope that others will share these static links here, so that this thread can be a continuing resource to Jamf Admins.
Here are a few more.
Zoom (Apple Silicon):
Google Chrome (Universal):
Webex (Apple Silicon):

Zoom has a universal installer intended for IT deployments:
If you're going to do something like this it should probably be kept in GitHub or some sort of source control. That way people can create pull requests for additions or changes. Otherwise, it's going to take a ton of scrolling to maybe find what you want.
