Approve managed Google Play app

To make an app available to your users, you must approve it.

To approve an app:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under CONFIGURE, select Apps > Android.
  2. On the Apps - Android Enterprise page, select Open managed Google Play to open an embedded view of managed Google Play in Sophos Mobile Admin.
  3. In the Managed Google Play window, go to the app and select Approve.
  4. If the app requires permissions, accept these on behalf of your organization.
  5. Close the Managed Google Play window.
  6. Select Retrieve app list from Google to synchronize the changes you’ve made in managed Google Play.
  7. Wait for a few seconds, then leave the page and re-open it.

    You must re-open the page. Reloading the browser window doesn’t work.

  8. Select the app.

  9. Configure the app settings as required.

    You can configure up to 30 categories per page and up to 100 apps per category.

  10. Click Save.

  11. Select Send app settings to Google to make the changes available to your users.

After the data is synchronized to the Google server, the app is available through the managed Google Play Store app.

For the following tasks, visit the managed Google Play website:

  • Accepting additional permissions an app update requires.
  • Purchasing licenses for paid apps.
