App Store configuration (macOS user policy)
With the App Store configuration you restrict the App Store usage.
|Require admin password||Users require an administrator password to install or update apps.|
|Restrict to updates||Users can update apps but can’t install new apps.|
|Forbid app adoption||App adoption allows users to assign apps to their Apple ID that have not been installed through the App Store. If you forbid app adoption, users can’t update these apps. |
For example, this affects iLife or iWork apps bundled with the Mac.
|Turn off update notifications||Users don’t receive update notifications.|
