Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

You can deploy Enterprise apps to Android devices using the corresponding APK file. The Enterprise apps will have to be added to the Hexnode app inventory at first. Please follow the below steps for the same:

  1. Login to the Hexnode portal and navigate to the Apps tab.
  2. Select +Add Apps > Enterprise App.
  3. Select the platform as Android.  
  4. You will have the option to add the add app using the APK file or from the manifest path.
  5. Provide details such as App Name, Category, description for the app, etc.
  6. Upload the APK file for the app and choose whether to notify the admin about the status of app deployment. Click Add. 

You can then deploy these apps to the devices via Remote Actions or a policy.

Kindly use the help link to know more about Enterprise app deployment.
