Updating application distributed via self service

New Contributor II

I have used composer for configuring application to be distributed via self service.
How is it possible to enable updates to these applications? (such as sketch, snagit, intellij)
Is there an option to use download links provided by manufacturer for distribution ?

Thanks in advance for you replies

Technically, each piece of software may be unique in how you manage the preparation, upgrade/replacement of said item. JAMF and others are constantly working on "patch management' solutions, and you will find LOTs of threads here on jamfnaiton dedicated to sharing the best methods for updating individual pieces of software. Composer is a great tool (opinions vary) but it is what it is, but it is very manual. Check through the threads here for individual software titles and you will find all sorts of great solutions!
