How do managed configurations work?

Managed configurations use the following process:

1. App developers implement logic to support managed configurations in their apps. They define which app settings can be remotely configured in an XML schema file in their Android app. This schema is linked to the app’s manifest file. Once done, app developers push their app to Managed Google Play.

2. MDM developers implement logic to pull the managed configurations schemas from apps on Managed Play. These schemas can then be used to allow IT admins to specify how they want to configure app settings. After the IT admin saves their configuration, the MDM pushes the configuration to Managed Google Play.

3. Once an app configuration is updated and pushed to Managed Google Play, the app is updated on all applicable devices to reflect the new configuration.
