Create and manage AppConnect configuration policies

Overview

The AppConnect configuration policy allows you to distribute and silently activate the inSync for MobileIron app on multiple iOS devices. You must create and configure the AppConnect configuration policy to set the key-value pairs that the inSync for MobileIron app requires to authenticate inSync users. The following table lists the key-value pair that you must provide in the AppConnect configuration policy.

Key Description Value
NAME Name of the inSync user. Set the value to $USERID$.
EMAIL Email address of the inSync user. Set the value to $EMAIL$.
SERVER

URL of the inSync Master.

Note: If you are connecting to inSync Master on an inSync On-Premise setup through the Edge Server, then you must contact your inSync administrator. If the administrator has configured FQDN for the Edge Server, then you must use the FQDN to connect to inSync Master. If the administrator has configured IP address for the Edge Server, then you must use the IP address to connect to inSync Master.

Set the value to cloud.druva.com.
TOKEN Mass deployment token to activate inSync users. For more information on how to generate a mass deployment token, see Generate a mass deployment token. Specify the mass deployment token.

After inSync users install the inSync for MobileIron on their iOS device, the following communication and authentication process occurs:

  1. MobileIron communicates with the MobileIron Virtual Smartphone Platform Server for the configuration policy. During this process, the $EMAIL$ and $USERID$ values in the configuration policy are replaced with the actual Email ID and the user names of the inSync users.
  2. MobileIron then sends the configuration policy to the inSync for MobileIron app.
  3. The inSync for MobileIron sends the Email ID and the IMD token to the inSync Master for verification.
  4. The inSync Master searches for the email ID. If the inSync Master finds a match, the user authentication for the inSync for MobileIron app is successful. If the inSync Master does not find a match for the email ID or if the IMD token does not match, the user authentication fails and the inSync mobile app login window appears.
