    App Owner Approval

    Enabled or Disabled

    Organizations often require that apps be approved by the app owner before the publishing team publishes the App to the target.

    Enabled: Once the app is re-signed, the publishing team cannot publish the app before the app owner approves it, and the Publish button will not be visible. Once the app owner has approved the app, the Publish button will again be visible to the publishing team.

    Automatic Push Notification Certificate Update

    Enabled or Disabled

    Push notification certificates can be automatically updated with this setting.

    Enabled: The certificate is updated one month before the previous certificate expires.

    For more information on push notification certificates, see the knowledge base article “Push Notification Certificates.”

    Ignore Entitlement Errors

    Enabled or Disabled

    An entitlement is a single right granted to an app that gives it additional permissions beyond what it would ordinarily have. Errors can sometimes occur that are caused by these entitlements, which prevents the app from being successfully signed.

    Enabled:  Entitlement errors during re-signing are ignored.

    Disable Fastlane for Provisioning Profiles

    On or Off

    This setting is for apps that are unable to download a provisioning profile from Apple due to Fastlane limitations.

    On: Disables Fastlane for this app and forces the app into manual provisioning profile mode.

    App Groups

    Refresh App Groups

    App groups are updated by default once a day at midnight. Use this setting to see more recent changes.

    Refresh App Groups: Fetches the latest app groups from the Apple Developer Portal. Click this if you have added, changed, or removed an app group and would like to see the updated list.

    Retire App

    Retire App or Restore App

    Retire App: Retires the app without deleting it from the system. This allows you to restore the app later.

    Restore App: Restores the app to the Ivanti incapptic Connect system.

    Delete App

    Delete App
