we need to upload a not published app from our supplier, so we can use them on Android Scanners. We tried in Sophos Mobile and Sophos Central Mobile. In old and new system I can add under "Private Apps", but it never shows up. When you try again, it says "Please rename package and upload again", so it worked somehow, but we can not see the app.
We checked all we could, but all helps just says "go to private apps and upload". We also created an Google Play Console account and paid the developer fee, but also there we can not find anything. Also no "link" or "connection". The only thing is, that our Google Enterprise account is the same as we used now for the console.
We read that you can also upload in console and use it, but this is not our own app and we also do not want to publish it. Just on internal devices, so it is easier to setup and manage the mobiles.
Is there something we are missing?
Thanks for reaching out to us.
Could you try using the "Send app settings to Google" followed by "Retrieve app list from Google" after having uploaded the Private App?
Let me know if this gets the list to update with your private app so that it can be deployed.
List is still empty
If the application was uploaded directly using the Google Developer Console, is it possible for you to search for the name you used when uploading using the "Search Play Store" tab?
If you wish for the private app to be displayed when browsing through the iFrame (Google Play UI) within the SMC portal, the app will need to be uploaded from within this UI.
Let me know if this helps.
