    Hi Ben. Is it possible for previous versions to also be supported? There are some workloads which require older versions (2020/2021)

    /S looking good. Adding support in our catalog. Thanks for your patience! 🥳

    Testing again now with the /S switch to see if we can support it. We recently tested PyCharm which also supports /S and were able to add it to our supported products. Keep those fingers crossed! :)

    Confirmed you can do a silent install without using a configuration file using /S switch.


    Please review

    I just confirmed that you can perform a silent install without the configured file using only the "/S"

    @Fredrik, thanks for the link, we'll take a look!

    @Michael: our catalogue depends on single file installers due it to being a SCUP catalogue. As per Justin's previous response, we could bundle in extra content (e.g. config files) with our Publishing service, but this will not work with our customers using SCUP or in-console SCCM publishing.

    I don't understand why config files are not supported. They work with SCCM and Intune.

    Please revise - According to the documentation it's now possible with silent install: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206827139-Silent-or-Unattended-installation-on-Windows

    It's possible when using our publishing service, but it's not possible for customers using SCUP or SCCM for publishing.

    The possibility to add files/folders to the update using the update service will this not work?

    Hi All,

    In our testing, it doesn't appear this product support's a silent command line. It seems you may be able to use an INI file, but we can only support products with a silent command line that doesn't require additional configuration files.
