Assign internal Android, iOS, macOS, and Windows apps

Last updated April 3rd, 2023

To assign an internal app:

  1. Go to Application, select an internal app, then click Assign. The Assign Application page opens.

  2. Configure the assignment settings:

    • Target Device — Shows the app platform.

      • For an Android internal app, select a target device type from Android Enterprise, Android Legacy, and Android Enterprise + Legacy.
    • Installation Area — This option is available only for Android apps. Depending on the Target Device setting, shows the area where the app will be installed.

      Target Device Installation Area
      Android Enterprise Device + Work Profile
      Android Legacy Device + Knox Workspace
      Android Enterprise + Legacy Device + Work Profile, Device + Knox Workspace

      A Knox Suite or Knox Platform for Enterprise license is required to:

      • Install an internal app on work profile devices.
      • Install an internal app in the Work Profile area of devices that are fully managed with a work profile and run Android O OS. Devices running Android P or later just require a Knox Manage license.
    • Installation Type — Select the installation type.

      • Manual — Allow the device user to install the app manually.

      • Automatic (Removable) — Set the app to be installed automatically. The device user can remove the app. When you select this option, a new option called Schedule opens.

        For macOS apps, only the Automatic (Removable) installation type is available. Users can remove the app, if required.

      • Automatic (Non-removable) — Set the app to be installed automatically. The device user can’t remove the app.

      You may designate the installation type depending on the target device type.

    • Installation Request Priority (Android Enterprise) — Selects the preferred order in which the app installs on the device. Apps with high priority install before apps with normal priority. When multiple apps have high priority, they are installed in order of largest to smallest package size.

      • High
      • Normal
    • Installation Context (Windows) — Whether to install for all users on the device, or the user currently signed in.

    • Text copy — Allow the device user to copy text in the app.

    • Screen capture (Android Enterprise) — Allow the device user to capture screens in the app.

    • Auto-run after Installation (Android Enterprise) — Start the app immediately after installation.

    • Managed Configuration (Android Enterprise) — Click Set Configuration and select the reference values in the Managed Configuration dialog.

    • Home Screen Shortcut (Samsung Galaxy devices only) — Add a shortcut for the app on the Home screen of the device. If the device user deletes the shortcut, it won’t be re-added.

    • Printing (iOS) — Allow the device user to print the app screens.

    • Share list (iOS) — Allow the device user to use sharing features while using the app.

    • Managed App Setting (iOS) — Select Yes if you are adding an app that is designed to apply a managed configuration.

    • Key & Value (iOS) — If you selected Yes in Managed App Setting, click Add and specify a key-value pair for the managed configuration. You can add one key and its value at a time.

  3. Schedule — In this section, you can specify the following two options:

    • Use Deployment Scheduler — You can either choose to allow a scheduled deployment or continue to use manual deployment for the app. Depending upon your requirements, select Use or Do not use.
    • Deployment Starts At — If you chose to use a scheduled deployment method, you can select your deployment start time in this option. Use the date picker and time lists to specify the deployment start time.
  4. Select the target type.

    • Search for a target group or organization and select the groups or organizations to assign the app.
  5. Click Assign.

  6. On the Assign Application dialog, review the assignment information and click OK.
