I am writing enterprise application that should receive instructions from our developed MDM server. I can send those to managed application via Mac's Profile Manager. But I cannot find the description, how to attach managed app settings into configuration profile.
How I should send managed settings from custom MDM server? How custom server receive managed feedback?

Apps Supporting Managed Configuration

No votes yet

Managed Configuration is a feature introduced with iOS 7, and increasingly supported by MDM providers. It allows an iOS app to receive configuration from an MDM service. The MDM service sends a plist dictionary of keys and values to the app on installation. Some MDM services allow token substitution in the values. This enables a username, for example, to be automatically sent to the app so the user does not need to type it in manually.

In theory any app supporting the native preferences system will automatically support managed configuration. In practice some apps are designed with the feature in mind. Below is a list of apps we have found to support this feature.

Please feel free to edit this wiki page and add to the list.
