Android Enterprise extension app
The Ivanti MDM Extensions application adds new features to Endpoint Manager's existing Android Enterprise offering. As of Endpoint Manager 2020.1.2, this app is automatically installed on Android Enterprise work profile and fully managed devices. Once installed, device information is reported to Endpoint Manager with no end user interaction.
Currently, the extension app adds:
•Rooted device detection. To view if a device has been rooted, double-click the device in the Network View and select Mobile Devices.
•Serial number information. Visible in the Network View.
•Enroll new devices in Endpoint Manager 2020.1.2+. Any Android Enterprise device that enrolls with Endpoint Manager 2020.1.2 or later automatically receives the extension app as part of enrollment. This app does not need to be approved in the managed Play Store or distributed with software packages.
•Upgrade to Endpoint Manager 2020.1.2+. If you already enrolled Android Enterprise devices then upgrade to Endpoint Manager 2020.1.2, the extension app is automatically installed the next time the device syncs. This app does not need to be approved in the managed Play Store or distributed with software packages.
If the app is installed outside of enrollment (via upgrade), the app must be invoked either by the user opening the app or restarting the device before it will begin sending information to the core.
