Install an app through an EMM

This section provides general instructions on how to install an app (like the Knox E-FOTA app) using various EMMs.

The general workflow is as follows:

  1. Obtain the Knox E-FOTA client APK.
  2. In your EMM's console, add the Knox E-FOTA client as an internal app.
  3. Set a policy to install the app to your target devices.

NOTE—If your EMM has the capability to automatically launch the client, we strongly recommend you use it. Enrollment cannot be completed until the client is launched on the device.
