Applying device-based licensing to an app

After you have linked Ivanti EPMM to your Apple license account, you can apply device-based licensing to your iOS and macOS licensed apps, so that users do not need to enter an Apple ID when installing Apple licensed apps. This applies to macOS devices and iOS devices running iOS 9.0 or newer versions.


  1. In the Ivanti EPMM Admin Portal, go to Apps > App Catalog.

    You can see the Licenses Used and Licenses Purchased for each app. The totals listed includes the combined number of user licenses and device licenses.

  2. Use the check box to select the app to which to apply device-based licensing.
  3. From the Actions menu, select Manage Licenses.

    The License Summary page opens, listing the registered Apple licensed accounts for the specified app. You can see the Available Licenses and Used Licenses information for the selected app.

  4. Clicking the desired account opens the Account Detail page.
  5. Expand License Type, select Device-based License, and then click Save.

    If you have User-based License already applied to existing users/devices, Ivanti EPMM will not remove those licenses.

  6. Expand License Label Management and select the desired labels so that target devices that request the selected app receive device-based licenses.
