Creating Managed Configurations for Apps

You can give an app a managed configuration in Jamf School. Before creating a managed app configuration, it is recommended that you know how to create property lists. For more information on property lists, see the following article from Apple: https://developer.apple.com/documentation/bundleresources/information_property_list/managing_your_app_s_information_property_list.

Creating Managed App Configurations

  1. In Jamf School, navigate to Apps > Apps in the sidebar.

  2. Click the app you want to create the managed configuration for.

  3. In the Options section, click Show Advanced Options, and then select the Apply Managed Configuration checkbox.

  4. Provide a name for the Managed Configuration.

  5. In the Managed Configuration section, enter XML in the new XML field.

  6. Determine which groups the app and managed configuration will be deployed to.

  7. Click the Settings images/download/thumbnails/65175559/Settings_icon.png icon on the groups, and select the managed configuration you want to apply.

  8. Click Save.

Note: Each app has its own values. To find these values, check to see if the app allows managed configurations.

Creating Multiple Managed App Configurations

Once you apply a managed configuration to an app, you will see multiple tabs that can be used to create multiple managed configurations. You can create additional managed app configurations for an app by using the same process as you did to create the first managed app configuration.

If a device is in multiple device groups that the app is scoped to, it will use the managed configuration of the device group that was initially selected. If the app is scoped by a teacher, it will use the default managed configuration. If there is no default, it will not use a managed configuration.

Note: If you are deploying managed configurations to multiple groups, you can click the global Settings images/download/thumbnails/81541114/Settings_icon.png icon above the Save button, and then select “Change managed configuration to: [Name of Managed Configuration]”.
