Configuring iOS Applications on Scalefusion Dashboard

Many enterprise applications need users to enter URL, port, email address, and other similar configurations as a one-time setup of an application. An app configuration is an easy way to configure a large number of devices with custom settings such as email, network, and so on. Scalefusion now allows you to customize the configuration settings of your iOS apps.

Not all applications accept App Configurations. It is up to the application developer to be able to read configurations that are pushed from an MDM provider. Please contact your app developer to check if the app supports configurations.

Before You Begin

✅ You must have a Scalefusion Dashboard account.

✅ You have created an iOS Device Profile and enrolled an iOS Device.

✅ You have published an application from Apple App Store or Enterprise Store that accepts App Configurations.

Creating an App Configuration

Follow these steps to create an app configuration:

  1. From your dashboard, go to Application Management ➞ Apple App Store Or Enterprise Store.
  2. Select a new iOS application (from the Apple App Store or Enterprise Store) or select the one that you might have previously published/installed and click on Publish.
  3. Select the App Configurations tab and click on the Create button. Create App Configuration window will appear.
  4. In the configuration creator window, start entering the details of the configuration:
    1. Enter a name for this configuration.
    2. Click on the Add button to add a key-value pair.  Each key-value pair has the following fields,
      • Data Type: Choose a data type for your configuration from the dropdown under the Type field.
      • Key field: Enter the name of the configuration under the Key field.
      • Value field: Enter the value for the configuration under the Value field.

The following table explains the data-types available to for app configuration.

For example: email id, user_name.

You can use Chrome application configuration to push browser settings to your iOS devices with the help of Chrome Browser Cloud Management (CBCM).

  1. Navigate to Application Management > Apple App Store.
  2. Add the Chrome app to the App Store by clicking on the Add from App Store button.
  3. Once the Chrome app is added click on Publish to go to the App Configurations tab and click on Create.

    2. In the VALUE tab enter the enrollment token which you will get from your Google Workspace Admin Console.
      1. In your Google Workspace Admin Console navigate to Devices > Chrome > Managed Browsers > click on Enroll.
      2. This will show the Token that you will need to enter in the Chrome app configuration on the Scalefusion dashboard.

  7. Once the app configuration is successfully applied, the Chrome browser will show the browser settings as set by you in your Google Workspace Admin Console. For example, if you have selected the "Disallow Incognito mode" option in the User and browser settings then the users will not be able to open an Incognito Windows in Chrome browser.
