Add apps for distribution

You distribute apps to MAM-only devices through Cloud. Do the following in Cloud:

  1. Add the apps that you want to distribute to MAM-only devices.
  2. Assign the apps for distribution to the dynamically managed devices group created for AppStation.

    AppConnect apps require additional AppConnect-related configurations as well.

See the Cloud Administrator Guide for adding and configuring apps in Cloud. Some relevant sections are:

When adding apps that are not AppConnect apps to the AppCatalog, ensure that the launch URL field is configured. Enter the custom URL for launching the app in the Launch URL field. This is not required for AppConnect apps. See also Custom URL for an app.

Custom URL for an app

An app's custom URL allows you to launch the app from AppStation. You configure the custom URL in the Launch URL field when you add the app in Cloud for distribution. Since it's not trivial to identify the custom URL from the app itself, Ivanti recommends checking directly with the developer or doing an Internet search to find the launch URL.

For ease of deployment, the custom URL for apps and the following common apps is built in to AppStation:

  • Dropbox
  • Box
  • Microsoft Excel
  • Microsoft Outlook
  • Microsoft Word
  • Microsoft Powerpoint
  • Microsoft Whiteboard
  • Microsoft Sharepoint
  • Microsoft OneNote
  • Microsoft SkyDrive

You do not need to configure a custom launch URL for AppConnect apps.
