Link the inSync mobile app to MaaS360 Server

Overview

You link the inSync mobile app for Android devices with MaaS360 Server. The MaaS360 Server will directly add the latest inSync mobile app for Android devices.

You can then configure the inSync mobile app with the required policies and push the inSync mobile app to the Android devices of users. You can easily push updated configuration policies from MaaS360 to the inSync mobile app on the Android device. This ensures that the inSync mobile app is updated without user intervention.

Before you begin

Before you link the inSync mobile app to the MaaS360 Server, ensure the following:

  • You have a MaaS360 administrator account.
  • You have created the inSync user accounts for the inSync mobile app users.
    If you have an inSync On-premise account, for more information on how you can add users, see Add and manage users.
    If you have an inSync Cloud account, for more information on how you can add users, see Add and manage users.

To link the inSync mobile app for Android devices with the MaaS360 Server,

  1. Log on to the MaaS360 Portal by entering https://m3.maas360.com/ in the web browser.
  2. From the MaaS360 toolbar, click Apps. The App Catalog page appears. 
  3. Click Add > Google Play App. The Google Play App dialog box appears.
  4. Under the App Details tab, in the App Name field, enter Druva inSync and select Druva inSync from the list of suggested apps.

    Field Description
    Remove App on

    Select the action after which you want to remove the app from the Android device.

    Instant Settings Select how you want to install the inSync app.
    Security Policies Leave this field blank.
    Distribute to Select the specific group or device types to which you want to distribute the app.
    Send Email Select to send an email to the users once the app is installed on their Android devices.
  6. Under the App Configurations tab, select the Configure App Settings check box and provide the following information:

    Key Value

    serverAddress

    Enter the inSync Server name. For example, cloud.druva.com

    EmailAddress

    Enter the value %email%.

    This key will fetch the email ID of the inSync user and update automatically while accessing the inSync mobile app.

    massDeploymentToken

    You require this token for authenticating the inSync mobile app with inSync Server.

    To configure the policies on inSync mobile app, you must have a mass deployment token. The mass deployment token allows you to distribute and silently activate the inSync mobile app on multiple Android devices.

    If you have an inSync On-premise account, for more information on how you can generate a mass deployment token, see Generate a mass deployment token.
    If you have an inSync Cloud account, for more information on how you can generate a mass deployment token, see Generate a mass deployment token.

    allowCopy

    Enter Yes to allow copy of the content from the files, else enter No to restrict copying the file contents.

    allowPrint

    Enter Yes to allow printing of the files, else enter No to restrict the printing of the files.

    allowOpenIn

    Enter Yes to allow opening the file in other app, else enter No to restrict opening the file in other apps.
    appsWhiteList

    Enter the comma-separated bundle ID of the apps that you want to open your file in. inSync lets you open the file only in those apps.

    For example, to allow the file to open in Microsoft Office Mobile, then enter com.microsoft.Office.Word. To allow the file to open in Dropbox, enter com.dropbox.android

    You must specify allowOpenIn as Yes, and then specify which apps you want the files to open in. You cannot specify allowOpenIn as Yes, and then keep this field blank; this will, in turn, show an error message. You must specify a value here.

    To allow the file to open in any app, do not enter this key. 

    If you specify allowOpenIn as No, then the file will not open in any app except in inSync mobile app. 

    Note: The key values are case sensitive.

  7. Click Add. 

  8. In the To Add App dialog box, enter your Maas360 administrator password and click Continue

The inSync mobile app gets connected to MaaS360 Server. Additionally, the configuration and security policies get saved to the inSync mobile app.

For example, if you have defined allowOpenIn as No, then the user will not be able to open the file in any other app, and will encounter the following error: App Isn't Authorised: Your inSync administrator has prevented documents from opening in this app.
