Now it's time to assign your app. Choose between:

  • Available

When you choose Available, we will create two assignments and apps. An available app and an update only app.

Note: We create a second update only app because Company Portal apps do not update automatically. Otherwise the application will never update automatically on the endpoint.

  • Required

We automatically install the app silently in the background without any user interaction.

Click 'Install'

Well done! You just created your first Scappman app.

3. Follow your application install

You can follow your app deployment when you go to the installations tab.

The status of the app will change from Queued -> Running -> Completed.
