Purpose: Downloads and installs the latest available Microsoft
product specified directly on the client. This avoids having to
manually download and store an up-to-date installer on a
distribution server every month.
Instructions: Update the linkID value to one of the corresponding
Microsoft products in the list and optionally update the sha256Checksum
value with a known SHA 256 string. Run the script with elevated
privileges. If using Jamf Pro, consider replacing the linkID and
sha256Checksum values with "$4" and "$5", entering the ID as script
parameters in a policy.

It's the same one available at this page:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-teams/download-app

You'll see the fwlink in the download link of the Download button.

Getting this error in Jamf on 2093438 - Edge (Enterprise Stable)

Script result: Creating working directory ''
Changing directory to working directory '/private/tmp/Download latest Office and Install.pi7zOI'

Any ideas why?

@natkoo linkID 2093438 currently seems to redirect to https://msedge.sf.dl.delivery.mp.microsoft.com/filestreamingservice/files/095d0740-fddd-45d6-8e13-0b2488a3510f/edge_arm_stable_105.0.1343.50_Tencent.apk which isn't a package format for macOS devices and thus it cannot be installed.

You can determine the redirection url by yourself with help of /usr/bin/curl --head "https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2093438" and viewing the value of the Location key or typing this one-liner:
/usr/bin/curl -w "%{redirect_url}\n" -o /dev/null -s "https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2093438"

Which will output the url to this .apk file.

Why linkID 2093438 have been changed to this redirection url, I don't know.

But there is a new "Edge Stable Channel Installer" linkID listed on page https://macadmins.software:
https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=2093504

That linkID seem to redirect to the same installer url that is being listed on the download page for Microsoft Edge for Business:
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/business/download (Click on macOS - Download and copy the url listed on the Accept and Download button, and it should be the same).

So I would suggest switching to using linkID 2093504.

Cheers!

Is there any option to use that swiftDialog to do this with that transparent download and install.

@mani2care Anything beyond this script would be for you to develop. You're free to repurpose it for your own needs.

Hello - this may be out of your hands, just utilized your script to download Teams and installed was Teams Classic, not the 'new' version of Teams - Work or School. Any ideas? This may be a Microsoft thing too.

@cbruce2, I just updated this a few days ago and now I'm discovering I have two similar gists out there. I updated this one to match the other.

Thank you so much for your prompt reply ! I shouldn't have to do anything then? Correct?
