Mobile Apps

Oct 08, 2015

App Controller supports iOS and Android apps, including Worx apps, such as WorxMail and WorxWeb, and the use of MDX policies. In addition to the Worx apps, you can add the following types of mobile apps to App Controller:

  • Apps you develop for your users
  • Apps in which you want to allow or restrict device features by using MDX policies

You can wrap mobile apps with the MDX Toolkit and then upload the apps to App Controller. When you upload the app, you can configure the following settings:

  • Details of the app, including version and URL
  • Approval workflow for the app
  • Approvers for the app if you create a workflow
  • MDX policies

This section discusses mobile apps and Worx apps.

Searching for Applications

You can search the web, SaaS and mobile application catalog to locate the application you want to add to App Controller.

There are two ways you can search for applications on the Apps & Docs tab:

  • From the All Apps tab. This option searches all applications configured in App Controller.
  • From application catalog on the Web & SaaS tab. This option searches for applications in the catalog.

When you start to enter the search string next to the magnifying glass icon in the details pane or the application catalog, App Controller displays a list of apps the either start with or contain the letters you type.

For the applications you have added to App Controller, if you configure roles and assign applications to a role, on the Roles tab, you can search for the app in the role. You can quickly see which role the app is assigned to and make any necessary changes.

To search for an application in the catalog

  1. In the App Controller management console, click the Apps & Docs tab.
  2. In the navigation pane, click Web & SaaS.
  3. In the details pane, click the plus (+) sign.
  4. In Catalog, in Search catalog, type the search string and then click the app to configure settings.

To search for applications assigned to roles

  1. In the App Controller management console, click the Roles tab.
  2. In the navigation pane, under Roles, click a role.
  3. In the details pane, in Search apps, type the search string.

    The app appears in the right pane.
