How to renew a Volume Purchase Program (VPP) Token?

Apple Volume Purchase Program enables enterprises to find, purchase and distribute apps and books in bulk. Apple VPP is now part of Apple Business Manager (ABM) and is now referred to as Apps and Books in the ABM portal.

A VPP token which is now known as the legacy library token is used to link the VPP account to Hexnode UEM. The account info, apps, and licenses sync as long as the token is active. When nearing expiration, it’s essential that the token is renewed, otherwise the user would be unable to purchase apps through VPP.
