The Public App Auto update profile allows you to configure auto updates and scheduling maintenance windows for public Android applications.

The Public app auto update profile uses Google API's to send profile data directly to devices. This profile will not be displayed in the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub.

To configure the Public App Auto Update profile:

Note: If a profile contains a Public App Update payload, it cannot contain any other payloads.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles & Resources > Profiles > Add > Add Profile > Android.
  2. Configure the General profile settings as appropriate. These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it.
  3. Select Public App Auto Update from the payload list and configure the update settings:
    • Public Apps Auto Update Policy: Specify when Google Play allows auto-date. Select Allow user to configure, Always auto update, Update on Wi-Fi only, or Never auto upate.

      The default selection is Allow user to configure.

    • Start Time: Configure what the local time applications in the foreground should be allowed to auto update each day. Select a time between 00:30 to 23:30.
      Note: Only applies if Update on Wi-Fi Only and Always auto update are selected.
    • End Time: Configure what the local time applications in the foreground should be allowed to auto update each day. Select a time between 30 minutes to 24 hours.
      Note: Only applies if Update on Wi-Fi Only and Always auto update are selected.
  4. Select Save and Publish to assign the profile to associated devices.

Results

Based on time set, the applications only auto updates during the specified start and end times. For example, you would set kiosk devices to only update outside of business hours to not interrupt kiosk usage.
