    Hi

    Is there a way to prevent users from downloading the apps from apps store, or even restrict access to app store completely?

    Thanks

    is there a way to do it on a enterprise level rather then locally to the machine

    I mean via an MDM tool

    Thanks

    Have you looked into Jamf?

    i see what you mean, but i just wanted to push it out to all mac from a central location in one go.

    Is there a script i can push out or run to set the Apps store restriction?

    The most I have personally had to manage is in a lab, where I had physical access to the machines.

    I did see some comments from people successfully using MDM profiles with Jamf to restrict app store installs, but those were from 2015. I don't know if something has changed since then.
