How to Configure App Configuration in BlackBerry UEM
Many enterprise apps require various app configurations to connect to enterprise services and databases, such as user name, email address, server URL and port. Asking users to set those manually could negatively affect the app adoption rate and user experience.
One approach to solve the problem is following the AppConfig.org community scheme. The AppConfig community provides developers with guidelines and best-practices to configure enterprise mobile apps that are managed by EMM solution providers.
BlackBerry UEM supports enterprise apps following the AppConfig standards to deliver custom configuration values to applications with iOS managed configurations and Android app restrictions. For development guide, check out the links below. AppConfig community published on how to develop apps that support AppConfig.org standards.
Once your app is enterprise ready with the AppConfig.org standards, the next step is to configure BlackBerry UEM to support your app configuration.
In the UEM console, you can create app configuration settings for your app or get the pre-configured settings when adding apps to UEM depending on the type of apps. See the following for detail:
iOS apps - App configuration settings can be configured either manually or directly by uploading configuration templates(xml) to the UEM console. For the step-by-step guide, see Add an iOS app to the app list.
Android apps – If BlackBerry UEM is configured to support Android Enterprise devices, BlackBerry UEM gets app configuration information from Google Play. See Add an Android app to the app list if BlackBerry UEM is configured for Android Enterprise devices.
