Joining RealVNC Server for Mobile to the cloud using AppConfig


CloudConnectivityToken - Legacy.png

RealVNC Server for Mobile can be joined to a cloud team using a cloud connectivity token. This token must be applied to RealVNC Server for Mobile using an MDM, such as Intune, Jamf and Ivanti.

Using Microsoft Intune as your MDM?

See our Intune specific guide here.

Generating an AppConfig plist

MDM providers like Jamf and Ivanti use a standard known as AppConfig. To configure RealVNC Server for Mobile using AppConfig, you will need to download our AppConfig specfile, using the button below.

AppConfig Specfile

The specfile can be uploaded to an AppConfig Generator, such as the one hosted by Jamf here. Upload the specfile and enter your desired settings. For an explanation of each setting, please see the Available settings section.

Once you are happy with the configuration, click Submit and an AppConfig plist file will be generated. An example of what the generated plist file looks like is below.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" ""> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>joinCloud</key> <string>token</string> <key>leaveCloud</key> <false/> <key>joinName</key> <string>devicename</string> <key>joinGroup</key> <string>groupname</string> </dict> </plist>

Note for some MDM providers, like Jamf, you only need to copy the settings dictionary, i.e. copy from the start of the <dict> tag until the end of the closing </dict> tag.
