Steps

On the MobiLock Dashboard

  1. Publishing MobiLock Pro App is similar to publishing any Apple Store App/Enterprise App. However the MobiLock Pro App is listed in Enterprise > My Apps  > Mobilock Apps
  2. Assuming that you have enrolled a device and have created a Device Profile, navigate to Enterprise > My Apps  > Mobilock Apps
  3. Click on MobiLock Pro App card. A panel will open from the right hand side.
  4. Click on PUBLISH button. A dialog will be shown with all the Apple Profiles that you have created.
  5. In the dialog, choose the Profiles where you want to install the app.
  6. Click PUBLISH to confirm.
  7. This will send a push to all the devices and the app should start getting downloaded.

If you enable the MobiLock Pro App in the Apple Profile, then it will automatically publish/install the application on device. The above steps are not required.

On the iOS Device

  1. Once the application is installed, you will see the MobiLock Pro icon on the home screen.
  2. Click on the MobiLock Pro icon. Once the app is launched it will try to automatically sign-in to MobiLock Dashboard
  3. Once the Sign-In succeeds, it will ask you to grant Location permission. Depending upon your need grant the necessary permission and click Continue,
    1. Always Allow - This collects the Location even if the application is terminated
    2. Allow only when the Application is being used - This collects the location only when the application being used by the end user.
  4. Now you will be asked for Notification permission. This permission is required to show notifications for Broadcast messages when the application is not running. Grant the permission and click Continue.
  5. This will complete the configuration of MobiLock Pro application.
If the MobiLock Pro App does not automatically Sign-In, then please navigate to the Devices section and click on the Device to view it's Details. Click on the Gear icon and Refresh the device.
