Knox Manage: Configure AppConfig

AppConfig (or what Google calls Managed Configuration) enables IT Admins to configure device apps centrally and remotely from a UEM console. The UEM console simply sends your configuration to the Managed Google Play store, which then pushes the configured app to the device.

Only apps that support this AppConfig feature — like Samsung Email and Google Gmail — can be configured remotely this way. The app needs to embed an XML schema of configurable settings, which UEM developers can easily display in a web console iframe.

TIP — You can configure Knox through a similar OEMConfig feature. For details, see Configure Knox Service Plugin.

To use AppConfig on Samsung Knox Manage:

Select Set Configuration -> enter variable as $emailaddress$ for Email Address and $username$ for User name
