Deployment of in-house apps to Mac devices

expand collapsive

I am trying to figure out there are multiple ways of installing applications besides using the MacOS apple store.
I would like to install an app but it is not available on the apple store through vpp.Its and in house application.

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out.

    The app can be distributed to the macOS devices as an Enterprise app. Before deployment, the Apps have to be added to the Hexnode app inventory.
    Follow the below steps for the addition of apps into the inventory:

    1. Navigate to the Apps tab and click on +Add Apps>Enterprise App.
    2. Select Mac.
    3. Choose either of the below options:
      PKG file: The PKG file can be uploaded from your system and either enable/disable the option to notify the admin after the app installation gets successful or fails.
      From Manifest URL: Enter the URL where the App resides.
    4.  Choose a category and add a description for the app. Click Add.

    This app can be then be deployed to the Mac device via a Mandatory App policy or Actions drop-down.
