You can upload custom B2B applications acquired through Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP) to Workspace ONE UEM. Workspace ONE UEM works with the redemption code method and with the managed distribution method.

The ability of Workspace ONE UEM to manage custom B2B applications, depends upon the VPP system used to get the applications.

  • Redemption codes – Workspace ONE UEM can install custom B2B applications bought using redemption codes on to devices. End users can install these applications on-demand, but Workspace ONE UEM cannot manage these applications. Upload custom B2B applications acquired with redemption codes like other applications acquired with redemption codes.

    Go to Redemption Code Method for details.

  • Managed distribution – Workspace ONE UEM can install custom B2B applications bought using managed distribution. End users can install these applications on-demand or you can push these applications automatically. Workspace ONE UEM can manage these applications. Upload custom B2B applications acquired with the managed distribution like other applications acquired with the managed distribution. However, between the sync-steps and assign-steps, activate management of the applications.

The ability of Workspace ONE UEM to manage the custom B2B application determines the push modes available to distribute the application. See VPP, Custom B2B Applications, and Push Mode for information.
