Deploying Agent via Exchange Policy

(imported topic written by Phillip@tiri)

Hi everyone,

I was thinking about how to automatically deploy mdm agents to devices. Instead of installing agents manually on each device and explaining users why there has to be a new tool that will control their device, I would rather think of something like the agent comes with an exchange policy und is installed during the process of binding the device to the policy.

Is a deployment possible or can it be realized using this approach?

Thanks and regards, Phillip

Hi Phillip,

There unfortunately isn’t any way to deploy an app for Android or iOS through Exchange policies… Apple/Google require the user specifically install/enroll the app manually… Although you can do it the other way around where you can automatically provision the Exchange email profile once they are managed.
