    Under new features I can and in the docs for the inspector I can see that we should now have the option to convert unmanaged iOS apps to managed apps.

    I can’t find the feature in the admin console and it’s also not described (as indicated by the release notes) in the section for App Policies.

    Anyone knows where to activate this in the UI ?

    Also, where can we set this for the custom signed Afaria client? We have old clients running an unmanaged Afaria client from the SSP and would like to convert this to our new managed custom Afaria client set up now.

      Peter,

      It isn’t something you have to enable.  My understanding is you just apply a managed application policy for said app and Afaria takes over control.

        ok. It’s just for all the other MDM products this is an option per app. I might want this for some apps and not for others so I was looking tor the option under each app.

        Even if this is per server the release notes states that more info can be found in the app policy section and i can’t find anything there…

            What we see with other MDM products is that I can push the app as a managed app but I also have the option/choice of either converting already deployed app (by the end-user) to managed apps or leaving them as unmanaged.

            I was expecting this to be my choice and not be locked to always force the apps to be converted.

          Well when you upload a custom client into the iOS application page it builds a managed application policy under the covers, so it should work just the same.

              Are all of these devices running iOS9? This feature is only compatible with iOS9 and above.

              Additionally, just as a test, rather than using the iOS Afaria application option in the server config options (Server > Configuration > Enrollment > IOS Afaria Application), you can create a new managed enterprise application policy for your Afaria client and attempt to push that to an end user to see if the user will receive the prompt this way.

          Although the external text of the link was pointing to the right place, the embedded hyperlink was pointing to the internal location. I’ve corrected this now. 🙂

          This feature was actually released in SP6. I’ve suggested a documentation enhancement to our documentation team to avoid confusion with this in the future.
