    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Navigate to Policies. You can either create a new policy or choose to edit an already existing policy.
    Please navigate to macOS-> OS updates and choose the ‘Notify only’ option from the drop-down list next to the ‘Choose your OS update settings’ option. This will only notify the user of a software update via AppStore and no automatic update will be initiated. Please note to associate targets and save the policy.

    Kindly use the help link for more info on the same.
