How to Make Android and iOS Apps Work With BlackBerry Dynamics

Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features, like the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK, in mobile apps.

Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps without coding. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct required plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites to build secured enterprise apps. There is no need to wrap or manually code the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK to your mobile apps. The Appdome technology adds the relevant standards, frameworks, stores, and logic to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.

Appdome’s technology adds the full BlackBerry Dynamics SDK into mobile apps, as well as standards, methods or protocols necessary, to mobile apps automatically. After using Appdome, mobile Apps will leverage the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK capabilities as if they were natively coded into the app.

Using Appdome to Build your apps with the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK into mobile Apps is simple and fast. Once Building is complete, you can deploy the Built App via BlackBerry UEM and install the Built app on mobile devices via BlackBerry Dynamics. All data created within the App will be encrypted and protected inside a container, preventing other applications from accessing the App’s data. This allows you to enjoy all of the features the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK offers as well as the additional security of Appdome Mobility Suite and BoostEMM by Appdome.

3 Easy Steps to Make Mobile Apps Work with BlackBerry Dynamics

Please follow these 3 easy steps to make Android and iOS Apps work with BlackBerry Dynamics

  1. Upload an Android or iOS App to Appdome’s no code security platform (.apk, .aab, or .ipa)
  2. In the Build Tab, under Management and EMM Services, Select the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK (shown below)
  3. Follow the steps below and Click Build My App

Here are the detailed steps to make Android and iOS apps work with Workspace ONE.

  1. Enable EMM Services open the drop-down list.
  2. Next, choose the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK from the dropdown list.
  3. Then add the unique GD Entitlement ID
  4. Add the GD Entitlement Version
  5. Verify the GD App ID and GD App Version – BlackBerry has restrictive policies for uploading apps. It must have a unique App ID that follows BlackBerry’s regulations.  Here you can verify and modify the GD App ID and the GD App Version to match the requirements. By default, the GD App ID matches the app’s bundle ID.

Configure your App with additional features (optional).

If you’d like or need additional control over the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK implementation or need to configure the implementation in your app, please take a look at the following knowledge base articles:

  • Appdome Mobility Suite – provides detailed, gradual control over the BlackBerry Dynamic SDK implementation.
  • BoostEMMTM – allows developers and mobility professionals to connect the App to secure BlackBerry browser and email client.

Each of these features should be added to your selections before you click Build My App. That way, sections in these categories are included in the automated integration completed on Appdome.

When you’re ready with your configurations, click Build My App.

Congratulations! When your implementation is complete, you’ll see the notice below. You now have a mobile App fully integrated with the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK!
