SEP Mobile - Leveraging the AppConfig Community standard to allow automatic login in the SEP Mobile Android app as part of the Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile / MobileIron Core Integration
Last Updated January 16, 2018
This guide describes the adjustments that are required in the Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile / MobileIron Core integration when leveraging the AppConfig community standard to deploy app configuration to your organization's devices.
Once set up, the SEP Mobile Android app will automatically login users to the organization's Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile environment, and allow organization-specific settings to be applied to their devices.
The AppConfig community standard leverages Google's Android for Work program which facilitates enterprise support in Android devices.
Android for Work is supported on devices that run the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system version or higher. Consequently, configuring automatic login in the SEP Mobile Android app according to the method described in this guide will only work on such devices.
Before You Get Started
Make sure that your MobileIron Core environment is configured to leverage the Android for Work program to support enterprise use in your organization's Android devices.
Adjustments in MobileIron Core
Go to the Apps > App Catalog and and click on the SEP Mobile Android app.
In the opened screen, click on the 'Edit' button.
Scroll down to the 'Android for Work' section and check the following options:
Install this app for Android for Work

Under the 'Configurations' section enter the following values:
User Email - $EMAIL$
Udid - $DEVICE_UUID$
Org Token - copy the value of the 'Integration secret token' from Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile's Management Console under Settings > MobileIron Core Integration > Basic Setup
Save the settings.
In the Apps > App Catalog, the SEP Mobile app should now have the 'Android for Work' badge.
