Jamf Rolling Update Groups

Jamf Rolling Update Groups

in

Coming Soon!

tl;dr This process was created to replicate something similar to that of phased roll-outs in SCCM. Groups get increasingly larger as the roll out continues. This process is intended to be used with Jamf. It is available on my github. If you’d like to learn more about this process please continue below!

What, Why, & How?

If there is one thing I wish that Jamf had built-in it would be a rolling update feature. Something where it will auto populate/scale based on total enrolled machines.

Script Notes

I have little-to-no experience in SCCM but I do recall co-workers being able to slowly roll-out updates/softare using ‘phased update groups’. Doing so would allow to start deploying to 10% of devices, then the following 15%, 25%, 50% each time.

I am often asked by Product Owners/Scrum Masters if this is easily done and until now my answer was, unfortunatley, no (at least not in an automated, easy way :( ).
