    Hi Bennett. Thanks for posting this but could you please go over how to use custom definitions for patching the Macs? We are trying to patch Flash Player by using a package I have already created. The detection logic part works, however, the package I have listed in Additional Files isn’t running. I think I’m missing something in the Patch Install Command section of the properties for the rule. Thanks!

    Andy, to be honest, my guess is that the additional files call is not working because it’s not integrated into the Mac sdclient process. I personally haven’t tested it.

    To get around this, you may want to just call SDClient directly to download your additional files. See https://appleintheenterprise.com/?s=sdclient for details on how to do this.

    Thanks, Bennett. So custom definitions don’t work on the Mac like they do on the Windows side? Is there any solid documentation on how to do that for the Mac? We are trying to mimic that as much as possible from a standards perspective but we are running into issues and trying to find answers to specific challenges like this is proving to be a little challenging. I’ll try using SDClient to download the update directly then and see if that works. Thanks, again!
