The small dev company that I work for has been contracted to build an app for client. This client is using Apple Business Manager and wants us to publish to it.
I have built the app and deployed it for review to the Apple Connect. It passed and I see it is now in the client's Apple Business Manager account.
Here is where I am confused. Our client DOES NOT have a MDM. How can I use Apple Business Manager in this case?
From the apple site (https://developer.apple.com/business/custom-apps/), it says "Alternatively, organizations can choose to provide redemption codes to authorized users to download the app on the App Store.".
How do redemption codes work?
How does our client use redemption codes to download our app from the app store?
Our client simply wants its employees (1000+ employees) to download the app that we built (whitelabelled to the client obviously).
Does the client have to add each of its users device UIDD's to its ABM? (which would be ridiculous)!
How do these VPP codes work then?
How do they redeem these codes on the Apple App Store, and therefore install the app on their device?
