Delete VPP Apps

Is there any way to delete VPP apps from Hexnode. Few apps added in ABM are not needed now. But since I have synced it with Hexnode, they are still being shown in Hexnode.

    Remember seeing a delete button in the app section. That won’t work?

    Hello sysadminatsolutions and cad_e,

    Thank you for reaching out to us.

    Using the delete button in the App section will only make the VPP apps disappear momentarily. Once the VPP account syncs with the portal, the apps will reappear. Here is a workaround to hide unwanted apps:

    1. Make sure that the unwanted VPP apps are not associated with any user or device in Hexnode.
    2. Create a dummy location in Apple Business Manager.
    3. creating new location in ABM

    4. Transfer the undesired apps from your account to this new location.
    5. transfer apps to different location

    6. Open the Hexnode portal and go to Admin > Apple Business/School Manager > Apple VPP. Delete the account and create it again by giving a name and uploading the VPP file token. To download the VPP file token, go to Apple Business/School Manager > Settings > Apps and Books > download the token of the required account.

    downloading VPP token

    You will no longer see the undesired apps.

    Hope that helps.
    Cheers!!

    “Delete the account and create it again by giving a name and uploading the VPP file token” can the same name be used?

    @sysadminatsolutions Yes. You can use the name of your deleted account for your new account.
