Turn off upgrade checking in Proximity macOS.

I am running Cisco Proximity on a large number of Macs. For security reasons we don't want our users to have admin access.

Cisco Proximity runs a regular check for updates and the update fails as the user doesn't have admin rights.

 

I would like to tun off the update check but there does not seem to be a preference for it. Is there a hidden preference that can be set with a preference plist?

Yes, there is such a hidden setting. It's called disableAutoUpgrade. =)

Thank you for the reply. Do you have an example preference plist file? What is the preference domain for the application?

com.cisco.proximity. An example using `defaults`:

defaults write com.cisco.proximity disableAutoUpgrade 1

If you want to reload settings for testing immediately, kill the preference caching agent

pkill -INT -u`id -u` cfprefs
