XenMobile

Upgrade MDX or enterprise apps

To upgrade an MDX or Enterprise app in XenMobile, disable the app in the XenMobile console, and then upload the new version of the app. You don’t need to disable public app store apps such as Citrix Secure Mail.

  1. In the XenMobile console, click Configure > Apps. The Apps page appears.

  2. For managed devices (devices enrolled in XenMobile for mobile device management), skip to Step 3. For unmanaged devices (devices enrolled in XenMobile for enterprise app management purposes only), do the following:

    1. In the Apps table, select the check box next to the app or click the line containing the app you want to update.
    2. Click Disable in the menu that appears.

      The App menu

    3. Click Disable in the confirmation dialog box. Disabled appears in the Disable column for the app.

      Note:

      While the app is disabled, users cannot reconnect to the app after they log off. Disabling an app is optional, but we recommend disabling the app to avoid issues with app functionality. For example, users requesting to download the app at the same time you upload the new version might result in an issue.

  3. In the Apps table, click the check box next to the app or click the line containing the app you want to update.

  4. Click Edit in the menu that appears. The App Information page appears with the platforms you originally chose for the app selected.

  5. Configure these settings:

    • Name: Optionally, change the app name.
    • Description: Optionally, change the app description.
    • App category: Optionally, change the app category.
  6. Click Next. The first selected platform page appears. Do the following for each selected platform:

    1. Choose the replacement file you want to upload by clicking Upload and navigating to the file location. The app uploads to XenMobile.

      If you’re uploading an app for Android Enterprise, a managed Google Play window appears. Upload the new version of the app here. For more details, see Distribute Android Enterprise apps.

    2. Optionally, change the app details and policy settings for the platform.
    3. Optionally, configure deployment rules and XenMobile Store configurations. For information, see Add an MDX app in Add apps.
  7. Click Save. The Apps page appears.

  8. If you disabled the app in Step 2, do the following:

    1. In the Apps table, click to select the app you updated and then in the menu that appears, click Enable.
    2. In the confirmation dialog box that appears, click Enable. Users can now access the app and receive a notification prompting them to upgrade the app.
