  • Minimum/Maximum OS version: Specifying a minimum/maximum OS version is optional. If the versions are entered, the app will only be made available to those devices with an operating system that meets these requirements.
  • App icon: At the bottom, select an icon in .png or .jpg file format with a maxi­mum size of 100 KB (optional).
  • Managed: You can choose whether the app should be Managed. Managed apps are apps that can be managed via Cortado. It means that they can, for example, be pushed onto or deleted from the device (please find further information in section: What are managed apps?).
  • Prevent backup of app data: By enabling this checkbox, you will prevent the user performing backups of app data.
  • Mandatory: Activate this checkbox, if the use of this app should be compulsory for the users. The app is then pushed onto the user’s device at regular intervals, in case the user may have deleted it.
  • Rollout initially: Enable this checkbox if the app should be pushed to the users’ devices immediately (regardless of the synchronization interval and regardless of whether the Mandatory checkbox is enabled).The users can then individually delete the app later.
  • Data roaming: If this checkbox has been disabled, the user may not use the VPP apps in roaming mode in the mobile network.
  • Cellular data: If this checkbox has been disabled, the user may use the app over Wi-Fi only, but not in the mobile network.
  • VPN profile: In addition, you can specify whether a VPN connection should be automatically established for an iOS app at startup. To do so, you must first cre­ate a VPN profile under Control Panel→ Profiles.
  • Single Sign-On Profil (SSO-Profil): You can additionally assign the app a Sin­gle Sign-On Profile (SSO Profile). The SSO profile also has to be created first under Control Panel→ Profiles.
  • URL prefix matches: If you want to add further websites that the user can open without logging in again, enter them into this field. The additional URLs entered there are added to the selected SSO profile.
  • Confirm your entries with OK.

Now you can find the app in the Management Console (left column).

Note! If a App (with checkmark: Mandatory or Rollout initially) is pushed onto a user’s iOS device, but this same app has already been installed by the user, the user will be prompted to approve the management of the app. If the user agrees, then the non-managed app becomes a managed app.
