Controlling Managed Google Play Updates

Controlling Managed Google Play Updates

Hi,

With the introduction of the new managed google play update configuration in 14.2.1. Does anyone know how it's possible to trigger an app update on a device, if it's been marked as 'never update'.

I need to be able to check an update before rolling it out to the entire fleet and am trying to figure out the best way to control this. Once this is done, is there a script or something I can send which will trigger the devices to update apps from the playstore?

Thanks for your help

Thanks for the response. The problem with Always Update is that this doesn't give me a chance to test the app, before it's deployed across the fleet. So as soon as developers publish an update, this will auto-update on all the devices.

Have you also come up with the idea of creating diffent group with different profiles. 

For example, 

Group 1 - Production env

Assigned Profile - MGPA (Never update)

 

Group 2 - Test env

Assigned Profile - MGPA (Always Update)

 


Once you've finalized the final version of your app, then change the assigned profile of Group 1 from (MGPA-Never update) to (MGPA-Always update)
