This method uses redemption codes to allocate content to devices, and it does not support revoking the codes from Apple iOS devices. Once the redemption code is redeemed, it cannot be recycled. Also, AirWatch cannot delete content bought using redemption codes off devices.

Devices older than Apple iOS 7 must use this method for purchasing VPP content because managed distribution is not available for older systems.

You cannot use redemption codes for macOS systems.

Add Applications with Redemption Codes

Apple uses Web services to manage redemption codes. For the AirWatch Console to access Apple's Web services, you must first upload the redemption code spreadsheet. See Upload a Redemption Code Spreadsheet.

You must enable the AirWatch Console to assign redemption codes to users and devices. Select the applicable organization groups and smart groups to which to assign redemption codes. See Assign Content to Users for the process.

To make the content available in the AirWatch Catalog, publish redemption code content. See Publish Redemption Codes for the steps.
