Target Auto-Update Version

Sets a target version for Auto-Updates.

Specifies the prefix of a target version Google Chrome OS should update to. If the device is running a version that's before the specified prefix, it will update to the latest version with the given prefix. If the device is already on a later version, there is no effect (i.e. no downgrades are performed) and the device will remain on the current version. The prefix format works component-wise as is demonstrated in the following example:

"" (or not configured): update to latest version available.
"1412.": update to any minor version of 1412 (e.g. 1412.24.34 or 1412.60.2)
"1412.2.": update to any minor version of 1412.2 (e.g. 1412.2.34 or 1412.2.2)
"1412.24.34": update to this specific version only

Warning: It is not recommended to configure version restrictions as they may prevent users from receiving software updates and critical security fixes. Restricting updates to a specific version prefix might leave users at risk.
