Hello guys,

We've a customer that is using ESMC with MDM component. They want to know if possible to install apk packages remotely. I see that indeed there's a task related to software install.

We specified the path to apk es per manual: file://\\pc22\install\app.apk but task is in executing status without success. How we need to specify the path to apk?

Thank you.

Hello,

Currently, the option to install applications is not implemented in EESA (Android), only for iOS devices.

Also, the requirement for this to work would be placing of such APK on HTTP(s) server, SMB (file:// protocol) will never be supported for mobile applications.

We will add this as an improvement into the backlog.

Hi Mirek,

Thank you for your reply. Yesterday we tried to install an APK remotely using an http address and indeed it worked okay the APK was installed.

The only physical interaction needed to complete the task was to enable in Android the option to install APK from unknown sources.

Is it possible from ESMC to turn on or off that OS option? The setting to enable or disable installation of APKs from unknown sources.

Best regards.

@Lockbits Hello, as of now, it is not possible to configure the "allow installation from unknown sources" from our application. It´s only possible to monitor if this setting is actually enabled, then a warning is shown in the ESET management console. You can also block that, if the ESET APK was installed in device owner mode. We will check, whether it would be possible to add control of this. Once checked, I will update this thread.
