A few notes:
- The Dummy Package/Dummy Receipt workflow is no longer necessary as of Casper Suite version 7. Extension Attributes provide the same functionality in a much more usable (not to mention supported) fashion.
- The script contained in the article can be altered to be used in an Extension Attribute. This will be covered in a follow up post on this site.
- You may want to add terms other than “Firmware” to the script, such as “SMC”, “EFI”, etc., to cover all known firmware updates.
I hope some of you will find this article useful.
