Specify a single app or apps to run on devices and select the device settings that you want to enable for the user. For supervised 
iOS
 devices, you can select an app in the app list, specify the bundle ID of the app, or select a built-in app. For

Windows 10
 devices managed using MDM, specify the account and the Application User Model ID (AUMID) of the app. Visit docs.microsoft.com to find the AUMID.
If the user does not install the app on a device, when you assign the profile to a user or user group the device is not restricted to the app.
If you plan to use the app list to select an app, make sure that the app is available in the app list.
