How to add web app as Kiosk using MDM

Since there are many web based apps used in work, it is necessary to be able to add them in the kiosk along with store apps and enterprise apps.

Step 1: Add the web app to the App list.

  1. Go to the Admin tab and select App Settings.
  2. In the Apps section click on +Add Apps.
  3. Select Web App from the drop down list.
  4. In the Add Web App window, give the name, URL, app icon and category of the app.
  5. Click Add.

Now the web app is added to the App list.

Step 2: Add the web app to the Kiosk.

For iOS devices

  1. Go to Policies and select Kiosk Mode from iOS Settings.
  2. Click Configure and select the web app that was added earlier. (The name and app identifier gets filled automatically)
  3. Go to Policy Targets and select the devices, users or groups.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Save the policy by clicking Save.

For Android devices

  1. Go to Policies and select Kiosk Mode from Android Settings.
  2. Click Configure and type the name of the web app in the Add Apps section.
  3. Go to Policy Targets and select the devices, users or groups.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Save the policy by clicking Save.

And you’re done.

Note: You can give a kiosk local password here or not. If you give a password here, this local password will be required to exit a device from the kiosk by double tapping the back button. If however, you do not set a local password, the global password you set up in the MDM settings on Admin page will be required to exit the kiosk.
