Is it possible to enforce a policy which auto updates the deployed apps using Centrify MDM for iOS and Android apps? How are the apps updated when a new version is available?


Currently, there is not a way to enforce App updates or version specific Apps, due to the reliance of the App Store (iOS) or Play Store (Android) for App sourcing and updating. This means, the device specific configuration for App Updates will be used when new versions are available of the App. 

In-House (Custom) apps can be updated in the Admin portal and on next check in, will be updated (within 24 hours).
