Custom MDM applications are a type of app group and they are custom-made to track device information, such as location and jailbreak status. Enable Workspace ONE UEM to recognize custom MDM applications so you can assign them to special app groups to gather information, troubleshoot, and track assets.

Workspace ONE UEM supports custom MDM applications made for the Android and Apple iOS platforms. Upload them as internal applications.

Enable the Use Custom MDM Applications so that you can select the option in the application group menu in Workspace ONE UEM. Workspace ONE UEM does not remove custom MDM applications after the compliance engine detects them on devices. These applications are for auditing, tracking, and troubleshooting.
