Apple's Business Manager program provides the same methods of purchasing and assigning apps from the App Store as their older program: Volume Purchase Program (VPP). Addigy integrates seamlessly with Business Manager Apps and Books or VPP to create an environment where you can easily manage your devices and the apps associated with them.
The following requirements are needed to proceed with the DEP Integration within Addigy using Apple Business Manager:
- Apple Business Manager account (business.apple.com)
- Apps and Books tried to your Apple Business Manager account
- Administrator access in Apple Business Manager
- Owner access in Addigy (or similar privileges to Integrations)
- An MDM Profile is created and defined in Policies -> Integrations (under the desired policy) -> Mobile Device Management (MDM) Integration
Enabling the Addigy VPP Integration
To enable the Addigy VPP integration, an account with Create Integrations privileges for your organization must enable the integration in Support -> Integrations. This will enable the VPP capabilities in the Policies page.
Now you head over to the Policies page to start the configuration.
Configuring of Addigy VPP Integration
Once enabled, you will be able to associate your Addigy Policies with different VPP accounts.
Navigate to the desired policy in the Policies page. In the Integrations portion of the policy, follow the instructions to enable your VPP assets for that policy.
To obtain your VPP Token, navigate to Settings -> Apps and Books -> My Server Tokens inside Apple Business Manager.
Copy the text from the downloaded token file into the VPP integration section of Addigy. Once your token is applied, you will see your company name and the expiration date within Addigy to validate the correct account is connected.
VPP Assets will now show in the assets section underneath the VPP Integration configuration.
