I have got the applications to be deployed on my macOS devices. But they are not from the App Store, I have the pkg file with me. Can I do this remotely using hexnode?

    Hey, Thanks for posting the query.

    The Apps can be deployed as Enterprise Apps using the PKG file.
    Firstly, Apps have to be added to the App inventory. Follow the below steps for the same:

    1. Navigate to Apps tab
    2. Click +Add Apps->Enterprise App
    3. Select Mac
    4. Enter the App Name
    5. Choose the option to upload PKG file
    6. Choose a category that the app can be placed in or add a new category by clicking the + button.
    7. Add a suitable description for the app and click Add.

    These Apps can then be added to devices via Actions drop-down or Mandatory app policy.

    Please use the help link for a detailed explanation of the same.

    Cheers!

    Does the enterprise app need any user interaction? How much of time would the installation take?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    The enterprise app will get silently installed on the macOS devices. It will not require any manual interaction. The app can be deployed either via remote actions or mandatory app policy.
    The app should get installed on the device right away, once the action initiated/mandatory policy associated is successful. However, depending upon the size of the app and the network speed, it may take a couple of minutes.

    Cheers!
