Deployment script and command reference


When you create a deployment policy in the Code42 console, Code42 generates two essential pieces of code:

  • User-detection scripts
  • Arguments for Code42 app install commands

This article provides details about both pieces, for Windows, Mac, and Linux devices.


This article assumes you understand the introduction to deployment provided by the article Prepare to deploy Code42 client apps.

These instructions apply to administrators deploying Code42 apps version 6.5 or later with on-premises authority servers version 6.5 or later. If you are using older servers or clients, select the appropriate instructions from Manage app installations in your Code42 environment.

To use these deployment tools, you need to sign in to your Code42 console as a user with one of these roles:

Deployment is a secure process:

  • Code42 provides the SSL-WHITELIST parameter for testing purposes with self-signed certificates. For production deployments, Code42 strongly recommends protecting your authority server with a CA-signed certificate.
  • During installation, device-server communications are encrypted.
  • Devices can use a proxy to reach your authority server. See the PROXY_URL parameter.
  • Deployment can run silently, with no intervention from users at devices.
