This concerns the MobileIron MyPhone@Work Client, I noticed a mobileiron:// URI scheme is available on iOS.

I was thinking of using this with a webclip, that directs a user to the right server for registering on the MDM server. (now I'm getting ahead of myself)

Now I'm curious what arguments are available.

  • "Ask Different" is a terrible title for this site then. Aug 30 '12 at 9:51
  • Maybe MobileIron has some support channels or a community where such questions would be better suited?

  • Sure, right before asking my question here, I opened a ticket with them. Aug 30 '12 at 11:14
  • The URI scheme isn't mentioned in their knowledge base or guides, so I figured I might post it here, as this site has questions on MDM as well. Aug 30 '12 at 11:23

The scheme is an open one. Apps register with iOS when they get installed, and if there is no app to take an arbitrary://link then it will just fail or go to mobile Safari.

I believe Apple maintains a list of helper prefixes, but doesn't publish it.


In fact, the outcome if more than one app on the device tries to register the same URL schema is undefined.

Excerpt from here:

Note: If more than one third-party app registers to handle the same URL scheme, there is currently no process for determining which app will be given that scheme.
