When you first enter your Esper Console, there are no applications available. If you want to include your application when you provision your first device, you can:
- Upload your application to the Esper Cloud
- Devices must be compatible with the type of application (e.g., you can't install an x86 application on a GMS tablet).
- Use a Google Play Store application
- You'll need to be enrolled in Managed Google Play - learn more below.
Upload your application to the Esper Cloud
Applications uploaded to the Esper Cloud are known as Enterprise Applications. Uploading an application works with both AOSP and GMS devices. Be sure that your APK is signed with the V1 signature, as that’s the signature we check for when applications are uploaded. Upload your application by going to Apps section in your left menu of your Console, and then click the Upload Apps button. Learn more about uploading applications to the Esper Cloud here.
Use Google Play Store Applications
You can use Google Play applications when you provision a GMS device. You need to create a managed Google Play account in order to do this before provisioning devices.
Go to Applications, and then click Google Play to get started. Find out more about enrolling in managed Google Play.
This is an optional step; you don’t have to include any applications when you start—but depending on your use case, you may wish to have your Enterprise application available, a desired Play Store application, or any combination of the two if your device supports it.
