Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

To install the Enterprise app to a particular device, you will have to add it to the Hexnode app inventory at first. Please follow the below steps

  • Navigate to Apps tab-> Apps, click on + Add Apps and choose the option ‘Enterprise Apps’. The configuration window with options for adding an Enterprise app will appear.
  • Click on the Choose file button to upload the APK file. Configure the other options and click Add.

The app can now be deployed to the desired device either remotely or via mandatory app policy.

To deploy apps remotely, navigate to Manage tab, select the device, click on the Actions button and choose the option ‘Install Application’. Select the desired app and click Done. The app installation will be initiated.

Follow the below steps for deploying the app via Mandatory App policy:

  • Navigate to Policies-> Android -> App Management-> Mandatory Apps and click Configure.
  • Click on +Add to add the desired app. Click Done.
  • Associate policy targets and save the policy.
  • Click on Save.

Check out our help doc on Enterprise app distribution for more details.
