Overview

Organizations that have multiple Knox Manage environments may upload the same APK as Managed Google Play Private App to multiple tenants. However, the app cannot be uploaded to each tenant individually, as you cannot upload the same package names to different environments.

This article explains how you can upload a private app and allow multiple tenants to use the app.
