Deploy Cortex XDR for Android Using an MDM

For ease of deployment, you can use a mobile device management (MDM) system such as AirWatch, to deploy the Cortex XDR app to your managed Android devices.
For ease of deployment, you can use a mobile device management (MDM) system such as Workspace ONE (formerly AirWatch), MobileIron, or the Google Admin Console, to deploy the Cortex XDR app to your managed Android devices. Cortex XDR for Android may also work with additional untested MDM systems that support the following dynamic fields:
Field
Description
referrer
The distribution ID. To obtain the distribution ID, Create an Installation Package from the Cortex XDR and copy the download link. This link contains the distribution ID required to associate the app with your Cortex XDR tenant.
firstName
Dynamic field for user's first name.
lastName
Dynamic field for user's last name
email
Dynamic field for user’s email
If you install Cortex XDR for Android in an Android work profile, Cortex XDR scans all managed apps in the work profile.
The Google Admin Console does not support dynamic values. Instead, you configure only the distribution ID and deploy your Cortex XDR agent. When the Cortex XDR app starts for the first time and no user information is available, the app identifies the current account that is in use and provides the associated user information to the Cortex XDR.
To deploy Cortex XDR for Android from Workspace ONE:
  1. In Workspace ONE, add Cortex XDR for Android to your app list.
  2. Assign Cortex XDR for Android to a deployment group.
  3. Edit the Application Configuration to provide value string pairs using the lookup value option or enter in the values.
    For the referrer, you can paste the entire download link associated with your installation package. Or you can extract the referrer from the link and paste only the distribution ID.
  4. Add and then publish the configuration to your devices.
