As an admin, you can use the macOS Software Distribution method to initiate the software management lifecycle for macOS applications.

The path to the Apple macOS Software Management page on the UEM console is Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apple > Apple macOS > Software Management.

What can you do with the Apple macOS Software Management page?

With Software Management settings, you can enable software lifecycle management through internal applications.

Determine your Organization group hierarchy

Before you review and modify the settings, understand the two types of inheritance/override options for the organization group hierarchy available at the top and bottom of the settings page and determine your choice. For more information about these settings, see Override Versus Inherit Setting for Organization Groups.
  • Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.
  • Child Permission – Select the available behavior of child organization groups that exist below the currently selected organization group. Inherit only means child OGs are only allowed to inherit these settings. Override only means they override the settings, and Inherit or Override means you can choose to inherit or override settings in child OGs that exist below the currently selected OG.

Enable Software Management. At this point, make sure that you verify if the File Storage is enabled. If there is no file storage enabled, you are requested to enable it.
