Skype for Business on iOS: configuration through ACE / MDM RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I asked this question in the Skype for Business forum, but was redirected here.

    We use Airwatch for mobile device management. Airwatch provides a method to configure applications remotely ("Send application configuration"), which is often referred to as App Configuration for Enterprise (ACE).

    ACE allows for pushing key-value pairs as configuration items to the app.

    My questions is: does Skype for Business support ACE? If so, what are the keys that it can accept?

    Kind regards,

  • No, sadly, I never got an answer.

    I guess that Microsoft does not bother as they support SSO with Azure AD.

  • Using the Send application configuration could allow you to use an AD enrolled user (in airwatch) to have their UPN/username enabled in the iOS app so they wouldn't need to enter it again.  Like sending a device an EAS profile to autosetup email when enrolled.

    Would be nice if Microsoft could provide an answer to allow more zero touch deployment for this.

    If I get any answers elsewhere I will return to provide an update.

  • As far as we know Microsoft do not support MDM of Skype in anything other than InTune.  We have a native ios Airwatch application that can support Skype for Business IM, Presence and Persistent Chat Room access for On-Premise deployments that also does not rely on Edge Services. Have a look at MindLinkSoft.com if this fits your needs, we are a Microsoft Gold Partner.

    Kind Regards,

  • Good day,

    Same scenario - we are trying to deploy Skype for Business via Airwatch and would like to customize.

    Is there perhaps any update from Microsoft on this yet?
