Policies and Unregistered or Disabled Users
Unregistered Users: You may want to apply policies to an app that will be distributed to users who are not registered with Apperian and do not need the App Catalog on their device. This includes users who install an app through a Direct Install link, a custom-built catalog, or another external system. Not all policies are supported with unregistered users. For more information, see Enable No-Registration Policies.
Policies and Hybrid Apps
While policies are supported with native iOS and Android apps only, the hybrid apps feature provides a way to also apply policies to web apps. A hybrid app delivers a web app as part of a native iOS or Android app. Therefore, like any other iOS or Android app, you can apply policies to it. For more information, see Hybrid Applications (Delivering a Web App as a Native App).
Click on a policy in the table below for more information, including configurable options and a description of the mobile user's experience when the policy is enabled. For more information about dynamic vs static policies, see About Policies.
