Can we use MPNS for MDM Push to Windows Phone 8.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Any pointers to Window Phone Store REST APIs. 

    Specifically, for MDM App Policy. There should be some way to search over phone store programmatically with some JSON/XML APIs??

  • You can use WNS with WP 81. MDM push. Regarding APIs to search phone store programmatically, there are no APIs for WP 8.1 to accomplish this. Can you please let me know why you would like to do this so we can try to find other alternatives?

  • Two reasons

    1. Think about mdm app policy, where admin blacklist/whitelist Store apps and/or publishers.
    If we don't have Store REST APIs. Then admin would have to copy paste data from Store to mdm solution.

    2. Asking admin to create PFN is a bit lengthy process. Traversing through Store, WNS, and finally use Visual Studio to get the PFN. If we have store REST APIs, we could probably script this flow.
