Microsoft AutoUpdate (MAU) version 3.18 and later includes the msupdate command-line tool. The msupdate tool can be used to start the update process for Microsoft applications produced for Mac, such as Office. The tool is primarily designed to give IT administrators more precise control over when updates are applied. You can download the latest version of MAU from this link.
msupdate works by sending Apple Events to the MAU daemon. On macOS 10.14 Mojave and later, you may see a privacy prompt when running msupdate for the first time. If you are using an enterprise management tool such as Jamf Pro, you should deploy a Privacy Preferences Policy Control (PPPC) payload to pre-approve access. Samples of such a payload can be downloaded from GitHub.
Use the following steps to start using the tool:
cd /Library/Application Support/Microsoft/MAU2.0/Microsoft AutoUpdate.app/Contents/MacOS
The following options are displayed:
./msupdate --config --format plist
./msupdate --install --apps MSWD2019 XCEL2019 PPT32019
./msupdate --install --apps OPIM2019 --version 16.17.180090901
./msupdate --install --apps XCEL2019 -t 180 -m 'Excel will close in 3 minutes to install updates.'
To use the -t and -m modifiers, you must be using Microsoft AutoUpdate 4.24 or later.
The following table lists the Microsoft applications for Mac supported by MAU. The identifier is used when specifying the
--apps parameter. When specifying multiple applications on the command-line, separate identifiers with a space.
