Allow Duplicate Key Values for Managed App Configurations
Our application, Redzone and Redzone Admin, allows for App Configurations with the following keys:
- serverURL (string)
- serverDescription (string)
There are many customers who have access to multiple server's and therefore would benefit from the ability to push multiple server's to their devices. In most MDM's, we provide our customers with an XML file they can import that makes use of an array to pass multiple sites at once.
SimpleMDM doesn't allow the upload of an PLIST/XML file to achieve this functionality, nor does it allow for duplicate key values and therefore our customers with multiple servers are unable to effectictively use Managed App Configurations with SimpleMDM.
SimpleMDM is the MDM we most recommend to our customers due to it's the ease of use, cost, and support. The inability to use duplicate key values nor import a PLIST/XML has huge impacts on the customers we can recommend SimpleMDM to.
Please consider adding support for duplicate keys and/or uploading PLIST/XML files to be able to push multiple servers to our applications.
The ability to upload a custom plist for managed app configurations including duplicate values was added a while back. The "Use custom config plist" option is under the Managed Configurations tab of the App Details page.
Attached is an example XML/PLIST file as requested with just two duplicated key values.
In reality, our customers sometimes have 10+ sites and they would define the same key values 10+ times with different string values.
