Adding Application Configurations

Application configurations can be added at the application level.

You can either add the domain or the onboarding code along with the configuration data to each app. You can add the same application configuration to multiple domains.

  1. In Mobile Services cockpit, select Mobile Applications > Native/Hybrid.

  2. Select an application, then select Discovery.

  3. To add a domain based configuration to an application:

    1. Select the plus sign under Domains.
    2. Select the domain from the list.
    3. Select Default to use the default application configuration and Save.
    4. Select edit and select Custom to customize the generated default configuration and Save.
    5. Select delete to delete a default or custom configuration.
    6. To add onboarding codes based configuration to an application:

    7. Select the plus sign under Onboarding Codes.

    8. Select the code from the list.
    9. Select Default to use the default application configuration and Save.
    10. Select edit and select Custom to customize the generated default configuration and Save.
    11. Select delete to delete a default or custom configuration.

Adding Onboarding Codes

Onboarding codes can be added to the application as an alternative to Service provider domains. This reduces the dependency on other individuals or processes making it easier to use onboarding codes to setup and use Discovery Service. This is also an alternative to email domain, useful in solutions where the customer's email domain is not known. It requires you to explicitly inform the users about the onboarding code. For example, you can email it to users or post it on the portal etc.

  1. In Mobile Services cockpit, select Settings > Discovery Service.

  2. Select the plus sign.

  3. Specify the description

    Note

    Description enables you to identify the code that is being created.

  4. Click Save.

    Codes appear in a list at the application level.

Adding Service Provider Domains

Add a domain for the application service provider. This provides easy communication with the user as there is a registered email domain, but thee is an increased dependency on other individuals or processes to set up and use service provider domains.

  1. In Mobile Services cockpit, select Discovery Service.

  2. Click the plus sign.

  3. Enter the Domain.

    Note

    To register an email domain, use a sub-domain of a registered email domain or if you want to use your own domain, you will need to register them first. To accomplish this you must note the customerid value and create a text record with the DNS provider of the domain with key_sap_mobsec.<emaildomain> and value for the customerid. For example, to register abcxyz.com, you need to create a DNS text record for _sap_mobsec.abcxyz.com with the value customerid=298cafde10b28be67f3d7e2b9060c784, where 298cafde10b28be67f3d7e2b9060c784 is the value shown in the Register Email Domain page of the abcxyz account's Configuration Discovery settings page.

  4. Click Save.

    If the domain is valid, it appears in a list at the application level.

  5. (Optional) To delete a domain, select Delete.
