App Inventory

This section contains the following topics:

The app inventory is the list of apps detected on enrolled devices. As an administrator you can use this page to get information on the apps being used by enrolled devices. You can answer questions like:

Filtering the display of apps

When you display the Devices > App Inventory page, all apps are listed. To narrow this list to certain apps, use the filters (left pane). For example, to narrow down the list to display only the private apps from Google Play, select Private under the Source section.

You can view app inventory across all or multiple space devices by selecting multiple spaces from the drop-down list. When you hover on the displayed apps, device counts are displayed. You can click on the count for an app to display all devices containing the app. Each app inventory record will be grouped by space.

You can search using either the App Name or Bundle/Package ID.

If you have selected multiple spaces, then hovering the Total value in the # Installed column displays the install count per device space.

Displaying the installed devices for an app

Click the Managed, Unmanaged, or Total number listed in the # Installed column.

Displaying the list of apps

Click the # Requested against the app in the app inventory to view the devices that requested the app. This is applicable only for MAM-Only devices.

Displaying the installed Win32 or Win32 Store apps on a device

The app inventory displays Win32 or Win32 Store apps on a device if the privacy configuration for that device allows for the collection of information for all apps on that device. You can configure the privacy policy for the device.


  1. Determine which privacy configuration applies to the desired device by following the directions in Devices.
  2. Go to Configurations.
  3. For the privacy configuration you noted in step 1:

    1. Select the configuration.
    2. Click Edit.
    3. Under Collect App Inventory, select For All Apps on the Device.
    4. Click Done.

The Win32AppInventory CSP returns the list of all Win32 and Win32 Store apps installed on the device every 24 hours after the inventory scans run on the device.
