MDM -App Management

Desktop Central provides the facility to manage the Apps Over The Air (OTA) to groups/devices. There are two kinds of Apps, they are Enterprise Apps and App store Apps/ Google Play Apps. You can manage both the Enterprise Apps and App store Apps/Google Play Apps using Desktop Central (Only Enterprise Apps are supported for Windows). To manage Apps, you need to create a App repository and then distribute the Apps to managed groups and devices. This document will explain you on the following:

App Management Workflow :

The following diagram would explain about the App Management workflow. You need to create an App Repository, where you can add both App store App and Enterprise Apps. While adding paid App store App, you need to upload the VPP file as well. In case of Enterprise Apps, you need to upload the bundle identifier and specify the App category and supported devices.

After adding Apps to the App Repository the Apps can be distributed to Groups/Devices. Users can view the distributed Apps in the App Catalog on their mobile devices. They can install the App by clicking on it. Store Apps will be downloaded from the Apps Store/Play store/Windows Store,  whereas Enterprise Apps will be downloaded  from the Desktop Central server. After installation, the status will be sent back to the Desktop Central server.
