Hi Peter,

Hope you are doing well,

We do provide the option to deploy configurations that could include login credentials for your apps via  Hexnode. If you are using Android devices, these configurations would have to be pre-defined by the app developer. Furthermore, the device would have to be enrolled under Android Enterprise and you would be required to have the app added as a Managed Google app from Apps > Add apps > Managed google apps.

Once this is done, you would be able to deploy the app configuration to the device via a policy from Policy > Android > App configurations. Here is a link with more information regarding this https://www.hexnode.com/mobile-device-management/help/set-up-permissions-and-configurations-for-an-app-using-hexnode-mdm/

If this is an app for IOS devices, you would be able to have the configuration deployed to the app by using an XML file with the required credentials added and have this uploaded from Apps > Click on the app name > Gear icon > App configurations. Once this is uploaded here, you can then proceed to deploy the app to the devices. Regarding the development of the XML files, you would have to contact the app developer. You would be able to make use of wildcards in order to specify user credentials or device information as well. Here is a link with more information regarding the wildcard capabilities https://www.hexnode.com/mobile-device-management/help/how-to-pass-device-and-user-information-using-the-wildcards-supported-by-hexnode-mdm/

For your Mac devices, you would be able to have the configurations of the app set by making use of an XML file as well. You can have this applied to the app from Policy > MacOS > App configurations. Here is a link with more information regarding this https://www.hexnode.com/mobile-device-management/help/how-to-set-up-app-configurations-in-macos-using-hexnode/

We hope that you are able to make use of the app configuration feature that we provide in order to have the credentials deployed to the required app on the device. If you need any assistance getting this done, you could always reach out to our support team directly via mdm-support@hexnode.com.

Stay safe and have a great day!
