Managed configurations for Android apps

Updated on May 4th, 2021

This article describes how you can create and deploy managed configurations for managed Google Play applications using Miradore.

Miradore does not currently support the configuration of the apps deployed using an APK file or the public Play Store.

Requirements

Good to know

  • On Android, the configuration of app settings is only supported for managed Google Play apps.
  • Managed Google Play apps can be deployed to devices that are managed with Android Enterprise's Fully Managed Device mode or Work Profile mode.
  • You can manage app configurations at the Configurations tab of the Application page.
  • Miradore lets you add multiple configurations for one app. This allows you to define separate settings for separate purposes or users.
  • All apps do not support remote configuration through an MDM or EMM. Refer to the software vendor's documentation for the app configuration keys.

Examples of how to use the managed app configurations

5. Click the plus button from the rightmost end of the row to define a configuration key. Refer to the application developer's documentation for more information about the configuration keys.
