Approving Managed Google Play Apps

Before you begin

You must have set up an Android Enterprise binding to SOTI MobiControl.

About this task

Managed Google Play applications must be approved by the administrator of the Google Managed Enterprise or Domain before they can be added to app policies. You can approve applications through SOTI MobiControl while creating an app policy or externally, though the Managed Google Play Store.

Note: This procedure is only applicable if you are sending Managed Google Play applications to Android devices that are work managed or have a work profile enabled.

To approve managed Google Play applications through the app policy:


  1. Start creating or editing an app policy (see Creating App Policies or Editing App Policies).
  2. In the Select Apps dialog box, select Managed Google Play as the application type.
    Make sure you have the right Bindings selected.
  3. Click the Sync Apps icon to synchronize SOTI MobiControl and Google servers.
  4. Click Managed Google Play to open the Managed Google Play Store portal and search for the app you want to approve.
  5. Approve the app and click Select to add it to the app policy.
  6. Repeat as necessary to approve and add more apps.
  7. Finish configuring the app policy.
