Preconfiguration of IBM Connections iOS App using Apple Managed App Configurations

 18 Januar 2016 21:06:25
Yesterday IBM released a new version of the IBM Connections App for iOS.

The new app version now includes support for iOS Managed App Configurations!

We as midpoints had been in talks with IBM for a while regarding the possibility to manage the iOS IBM ICS mobile Apps (Verse, Companion, ToDo, Connections and Connections Chat aka Sametime) by using Apple Managed App Configurations. The Connections App was the last missing app. Mission completed :-)

Example Managed App Configurations:

com.ibm.mobile.connections.serverURL=http://server.com/mobile

com.ibm.mobile.connections.serverName="Test Account"

com.ibm.moible.connections.user=TestUser1

com.ibm.mobile.connections.serverURL.1=http://server2.com/mobile

com.ibm.mobile.connections.serverName.1="My personal Account"

com.ibm.mobile.connections.user.1=%email%



The complete list of support MDM App Configurations can be found here: IBM Knowledge Center - MDM app configuration

Details about Managed App Configurations can be found in my blog post from Nov. 2015: preconfiguration-of-ibm-verse-and-sametime-ios-app-using-apple-managed-app-configuration.htm


Our EMM solution mobile.profiler supports Managed App Configurations since iOS 7 and can be used to preconfigure the iOS IBM ICS Apps.
