Suppressing the App Store ID and Password Popup

All my ipads are prepared and supervised using apple configurator.  My Meraki is linked to my VPP and working.  All my iPads have the Meraki Profile installed.  On my iPads, under settings > Itune & Apps Store, I have automatics downloads enabled for Apps and Updates.

 

I've logged into all my iPad's using an App store account, for some reason some apps pushed through Meraki seem to require this.

 

I don't have a problem with any of the above (although  I don't understand why I need to be logged in with an App store account.  I thought Meraki Manages all of that.  What I want to do is suppress the app store account username and password pop up at all.  Students and teachers don't need to see this, moreover, this is annoying for both teachers and students.

 

Is there anyway to achieve this ?

1. Enrol in DEP to push apps without Apple ID on devices.

2. Notifications settings below work quite well for our room control iPads. You may want to suppress notifications for particular apps you are using.

The screen shot you displayed is that from Meraki ?  also my ipads had a DEP profile installed, and I uninstalled it as it wouldn't let me install a meraki profile on it.

 

If the notification setting which you display are on meraki, and I turn it off for all the ups, I'm guessing that will surpress the apple ID popup just as well without having to re-enroll them in DEP ?

Ok, so Meraki wasn't setup on school manager.  I've now added that, I've also manually assigned 1 iPad to Meraki (on school manager).  when I look on school manager > Apps and Books, I see all the apps, I get the option to transfer to my Network.  but where do I configure the App to install on the iPad without the iPad getting a pop up for apps store ID and password.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Suppressing the App Store ID and Password Popup

The deviced do not need to to logged into an Apple account.  They just need to be DEP enrolled in the Meraki MDM.

 

Perhaps check out the Apple DEP enrollment guide.

Also check out this guide about configuring Apple School Manager with Meraki MDM.

Re: Suppressing the App Store ID and Password Popup

@Meraki4Schools  are you allowing the users to access the App store from the device and install apps? If you want to administer the apps via Merkai and not allow users to install apps I would disable users access to install apps and access the app store. This should make the notification that you are seeing go away and the apps will silently install.

Re: Suppressing the App Store ID and Password Popup

@Meraki4Schools Two things I would definitely do would be to set all of your App Pushes to be device based and then hide the App Store via restrictions on the iPad. 

 

Are you using the paid or legacy version of Meraki MDM as well as that will determine what you can and cannot do?
