Install a VPP, B2B Enterprise App on Shared Devices without Apple ID
I have a custom B2B / Enterprise application that has been pushed to our VPP account. The app has been synced with our MDM and I can deploy it to any user that has an Apple ID. The problem I am facing is I need to deploy this app to shared devices, and I don't want to create Apple ID's for each iPad.
Since this app is not publicly available in the app store I cannot add it to the apps section and I cannot do a device assigned license. I have the ipa file provided to me by the developer. When I add iOS enterprise app, it uploads fine. When I assign it to a device with an Apple ID it fails to install, If the app gets assigned to a device without an Apple ID, it is not pushed out to the device.
I guess what I would like to know is how does a custom app that has been pushed to my VPP get associated with the Apps section of Meraki so I can deploy it with device assignment. Is the developer missing something, am I missing something? Perhaps it is not possible and I need to create an Apple ID for each device.
