How it works

View Patch Catalog
1
Deploy
Deploys the agent package and a preconfigured profile via MDM to install and/or update applications automatically.
2
Compare
Compares the installed version of applications with our Patch Catalog to determine if an update is necessary prior to downloading the application’s install media.
3
Validate
Validates code signatures of applications and packages on the fly prior to installation.
4
Prompt
Checks for user consent. If user postpones, the install media will be cached locally and does not need to be re-downloaded.
5
Update
Determines if an application is running prior to update and prompts the user to update or postpone.

Advanced Features

Installer Caching

Cache an application’s install media for installation later using the "cache" subcommand.

Update Unmanaged Apps

When installing software, you can leverage the "update-only" flag to only perform an update if the application is already installed and out-of-date.

Custom Workflows

You can easily run pre-install and post-install commands using the pre-configured options.

Simulation Mode

Included is a handy "dry-run" option to run through the download / install / upgrade process for an application without actually installing.

Frequently asked questions:

How often is the Patch Catalog updated? How do I get my requests added?

Alectrona Patch updates the catalog definitions at least once per day with new versions when made available by the software vendor.  Have suggestions for new apps?  Click here to submit a request to add to our catalog!

Is this cloud hosted or on prem?

Alectrona Patch is fully cloud-hosted with no on-premised infrastructure required.  All updates are downloaded from the software vendor's website or CDN directly from your endpoint Macs.

Can I use Patch to download/install macOS Updates?

Patch supports third-party applications that are not in the Mac App Store.  We recommend utilizing built-in configurable settings for Software Update using a Configuration Profile with your MDM.

Are previous versions of software titles available for installation?

No, Alectrona Patch always installs the latest version to ensure you are receiving the latest security updates available.  If you wish to install older versions, we recommend hosting this package yourself as many vendors only publish the latest version.

Can I force a user to update?

Yes, by using the --force flag when calling the Patch binary on the command line.

How does Patch handle unattended computers?

If an application is not open, the application will update automatically.  If you are looking to force install, use the --force flag when calling the Patch binary.

Does Patch work for iOS/Android/Windows?

Alectrona Patch is for Mac apps only, specifically those outside of the Mac App Store.
