Set up a VPP sToken

To provide licenses for apps purchased through the Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) in Sophos Mobile Control, you need to set up an sToken (service token).
  1. On the menu sidebar, under SETTINGS, click Setup > System setup.
  2. On the System setup page, click the Apple VPP tab.
  3. Click the Apple iTunes VPP Portal link.
    This opens the Apple VPP web portal in a new browser window.
  4. On that page, select Business.
  5. In the Business Store Sign In dialog, enter your Apple ID and your password.
  6. Go to the Account Summary page and click Download Token.
    The sToken is generated and saved to your local computer in a text file with extension .vpptoken, using the download settings of your web browser.
  7. Optional: Move the sToken file to a location that you can access from the Sophos Mobile Control console.
  8. Go back to the Apple VPP tab of the Sophos Mobile Control console, click Upload a file, select the sToken file and then click Open.
    Sophos Mobile Control reads in the file and populates the Organization and Expiry date fields from the sToken details.
  9. In the Automatically assign VPP apps on installation list, you can configure the automatic assignment of VPP apps. See Automatically assign VPP apps.
  10. Optional: Fill in the remaining fields of the Apple VPP tab.
    In the Country field, enter your two-letter country code, for example US for the United States.
  11. Click Save.
Note: To notify when the sToken is about to expire, Sophos Mobile Control sends several email reminders to all administrators of the relevant customer, starting 30 days prior to the expiry date.
