Manage apps

Last updated July 26th, 2023

App management

Knox Configure (KC) enables admins to upload select relevant Tizen based wearable device apps or custom watch face apps to utilize with custom device profiles. Additionally, you can also add apps that can be invoked after a hardware key is remapped.

After an app is uploaded to the Knox Configure (KC) console or to the Galaxy store, admins can manage device apps by adding apps to a profile.

Once an app is added to a profile, it pre-installs selected business apps onto KC provisioned devices.
