The MDM Administrator can deploy iOS enterprise apps(IPA Package) silently through Codeproof MDM platform. (NOTE: Apps purchased via Apple Business Manager (formerly VPP) can be installed silently using Codeproof by following these instructions).

A. Deploy Enterprise signed .IPA package.

  1. Log-in to Console, select "Mobile Policy Manager" from top menu.
  2. Expand left side tree, Select a device or group of devices from the left-side tree,
  3. On Right side, select "iOS Security" then go to "Command Center" and select "Install Application" command.
  4. Select PackageType as "ManifestUrl"
  5. Create a manifest file for your .IPA package (sample manifest file can be downloaded from here)
  6. Update the sample manifest file and enter the .IPA package url.
  7. Select the manifest plist file from your computer and upload it.
  8. In this case, App installation will be silent and end-user confirmation is not required. See below image illustrations.
