Mobile Iron for iOS

Source: This article refers to Mobile Iron for iOS


Note: At this time, Mobile Device Management through Mobile Iron is available ONLY for iOS and Android.

In a Nutshell

In order to improve security, Coresystems has implemented Mobile Device Management for Field Service mobile on Android and iOS. This enables accounts to be associated with devices, ensuring that users can not use personal and/or unauthorized devices to access the account.

Since the iOS application uses the MobileIron SDK, there are no separate builds. Therefore, the Apple AppStore build works with and without MobileIron.

After Mobile Iron has been installed, it can then be configured from the Mobile Iron CORE admin portal.


Mobile Iron CORE Admin Portal

For setup and configuration of the application access your Mobile Iron CORE admin portal and login using the admin credentials.

Note: Please contact Coresystems for support for assistance in creating Account.

How to Create a New User Account

In order to be able to access the Mobile@Work app, a user needs an account on MobileIron platform that should be created by the Admin. The Admin can create a user account using the following steps and the screenshot below.

As stated above, the iOS application uses the MobileIron SDK, therefore we can use the application uploaded to the Apple App Store directly. Because of this, there is no need for an Mobile Iron-only version of the product.

How to Create Label

Labels are generally created by default by Mobile Iron, so if you already have an iOS label, this step is not required.

Note: The steps for creating a label are the same as the ones from the Android documentation. Use iOS in the “common.platform” field, instead of Android, and name it accordingly (i.e. iOS).

In order to create a label, open Mobile Iron CORE admin portal, navigate to Devices & Users, and complete the following steps:


How to Add the Configuration and Policy to a Label

Adding the AppConfig and AppPolicy to a label makes it easy to apply to devices. When a new device is added to the portal, it can be assigned to a label. Everything configured for that label is applied to it automatically.
