Specify the shared network location for storing internal apps

If you have an on-premises
BlackBerry UEM
environment, before you add internal apps to the available app list, you must specify a shared network location to store the app source files that you upload. To make sure that internal apps remain available, this network location should have a high availability solution and be backed up regularly. Also, do not create the shared network folder in the
BlackBerry UEM
installation folder because it will be deleted if you upgrade
BlackBerry UEM
. If you have
BlackBerry UEM Cloud
, you don't need to specify a network location for app files.
  • Create a shared network folder to store the source files for internal apps on the network that hosts
    BlackBerry UEM
    .
  • Verify that the service account for the computer that hosts
    BlackBerry UEM
    has read and write access to the shared network folder.
  1. In the management console, on the menu bar, click
    Settings
    .
  2. In the left pane, expand
    App management
    .
  3. Click
    Internal app storage

    Network location
    field, type the path of the shared network folder using the following format:
    \\
    <computer_name>
    \
    <shared_network_folder>
    The shared network path must be typed in UNC format (for example, \\ComputerName\Applications\InternalApps).
