Introducing App Config for Android Enterprise Apps

    Share On

    Over the past few years, we have observed a dynamic shift in modern software development, especially within the enterprise environment. At Scalefusion, our endeavor has always been to help enterprises improve their operations. Enterprise or native applications that solve business-specific challenges are critical to streamlining business processes. Scalefusion has been extending its capabilities, allowing enterprises to push applications via Scalefusion Application Management.

    We are excited to announce that Scalefusion now offers App Configuration for Android Enterprise.

    Essential to modern software development, App configuration enables developers to fine-tune app behavior and performance. In an enterprise environment, not all applications are available in Google Play Store, which makes configuring them a challenge. To solve this, we have now extended App Configuration for Android.

    IT admins can now configure enterprise applications right from the Scalefusion dashboard. 

    Need for App Configurations

    Application Configurations or Managed Configurations empower enterprises to remotely configure apps, automate operations, and customize app behavior to align with specific organizational needs. Whether establishing automatic connections to a corporate network or pre-configuring apps with employee credentials, app configurations empower IT teams to remotely configure apps in bulk, making them ready for business use.

    App developers can define custom properties or configuration fields to tailor the operation and behavior of apps precisely. With the extension of App Configurations to private Android applications/APKs distributed through the Scalefusion enterprise store, IT admins can now leverage this feature even for apps beyond those available in Play for Work Apps.

    Since not all apps are available on Google Play Store, it’s cumbersome for IT teams to configure them according to changing business requirements and update them across the device inventory.

    How does it Work?

    Enterprise App Config eliminates the need for individually configuring private apps. IT admins can save time and effort by configuring and publishing apps in bulk via Scalefusion Application Management’s Enterprise Store.

    • IT admins can upload the APK of a private app
    • The Scalefusion Android MDM Agent reads the configurations from the uploaded APK (assuming it supports App Config)
    • IT teams can use the configuration wizard within the Application Management section to configure the apps 
    • The apps are ready to be pushed to the enrolled devices
    • IT admins can view the status of app publishing, app version as well as app configuration

    For apps already published using the Scalefusion Enterprise Store, IT teams can check and configure them by clicking the Check Configuration button. App Configs can be published, edited, unpublished and deleted

    The App Config for Android feature by Scalefusion is set to bring enhanced efficiency, centralized control, and customization possibilities to enterprise app management, empowering IT teams to optimize app configurations and meet the unique requirements of their organizations.

    We are excited to introduce this feature that has been carefully designed and developed to address our enterprise customers’ evolving needs and preferences. With this release, we aim to empower our IT teams with increased functionality and improved performance. 

    As we strive to enhance our product to provide the best possible experience continuously, we look forward to receiving feedback and delivering even more exciting features in the future.
