Mobile Iron for Android Note: At this time, Mobile Device Management through Mobile Iron is available ONLY for iOS and Android. In a Nutshell In order to improve security, Coresystems has implemented Mobile Device Management for Field Service mobile on Android and iOS using Mobile Iron. This allows accounts to be associated with devices, ensuring that users can not use personal and/or unauthorized devices to access the account. Mobile Iron is a platform that secures the Android Coresuite application. The Mobile Iron-enabled version of the Android Coresuite application is distinct from the version available from the Google Play store. This build can be installed on an Android device using the Mobile@Work application described in the How to Install Coresuite Mobile via Mobile@Work below . After it is installed, you can then configure the app from the Mobile Iron CORE admin portal. ATTENTION: The following is the Application Identifier (Bundle Id) for Android: forgepond.com.coresuite.coresuitemobile. This is used for CONFIGURATION and POLICY, and is the identifier for the WRAPPED application, NOT the application from Google Play. Mobile Iron CORE Admin Portal For setup and configuration of the application access your Mobile Iron CORE admin portal and login using the admin credentials. Note: Please contact Coresystems for support for assistance in creating Account. Installation and Configuration Get Coresuite Mobile with Mobile Iron integration for Android ATTENTION: This is a temporary solution for providing wrapped builds. The reason behind this is that for iOS, Mobile Iron offers an SDK that can be used for integration. However, an SDK is not available for Android, thus requiring integrators to use a wrapper instead. View Steps There is a new application created on HockeyApp from where the wrapped build can be downloaded. The wrapped build downloaded from HockeyApp can not be installed on a device directly for security reasons. After downloading the build from HockeyApp the build should be uploaded to the Mobile Iron Core Portal (see the "Upload a new in-house application" section). After uploading the build to Mobile Iron Core Portal the admin will be available to publish the app to devices/users (see the "Publish an application to the users" section). Basic Configuration Steps Coresystems FSM Administration ATTENTION: The following configuration requires administrator credentials on the admin portal. These are currently not shared with customers.

Mobile Iron CORE Admin Portal WARNING: On Android, for the wrapped application, there is a configuration and a policy created by default when the application is uploaded to the App Catalog. The DEFAULT CONFIGURATION and the DEFAULT POLICY are removed automatically when the application is removed, and using these to add custom configurations to the app is NOT recommended. Creating a new configuration and a new policy is the recommended approach.
