Software Distribution Scripts

Use macOS software distribution scripts to perform additional configurations or validation of tasks in the Script section of the Add or Edit Application page of the console.

By inserting scripts, you can:

  • Avoid repacking installers by using pre-install scripts
  • Avoid post-install user prompts by scripting additional configurations
  • Perform validation
  • Customise uninstallation
