You can upload custom applications acquired through Apple Business Manager'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 applications, depends upon the VPP system used to get the applications.
Redemption codes – Workspace ONE UEM can install custom 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 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 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 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.
