Enable the option to sync Apple ID with volume purchasing during enrollment if you want to assign app licenses to a users Apple ID.
When deploying volume purchased apps, you have two options for how the app licenses are assigned:
- Volume purchased apps can be synced with the Apple ID that is currently logged in on a device.
- Volume purchased apps can be assigned to the device directly, regardless of the Apple ID on the device
In general, most organizations prefer option 2, as it streamlines the app deployment process. In some situations, organizations may prefer to use option 1, particularly if each user has several Apple devices assigned to them.
When a device enrolls, users signed in to the App Store on the device will automatically be prompted to allow “Apps and Books assignments” from your Jamf Now account. The user must agree to Apple’s terms and conditions to receive apps.
The invitation will only sent when an Apple ID is signed in to the App Store. If a user cancels the invitation, you can manually send an invite to sync with Apple ID from the device details page.
