Upload Private apps to an app store

  • The OMM menu is only available to orgs that implement Okta Mobility Management (OMM).
  • Procedures documented on this page are only available to customers who have already purchased OMM for their organization. New OMM sales are not supported. For more information, contact Okta Support.

A private app is a native app (an internally developed enterprise app) that you create and distribute to your OMM-enrolled end users. End users obtain private apps from an app store accessible from their mobile device. (Mobile App store for iOS device end users; Play for Work for Android device end users.) If your app supports managed app configuration, see Managed Application Configurations to set up pre-configured key-value pairs that you can send to all managed apps installed by Okta Mobility Management (OMM).


  • Private apps do not appear on end users' desktop Okta Home page.
  • Be aware of these differences between the distribution of Android and iOS apps:
    • Android apps – You can upload public and private apps to the Google Play Store and then link to them from within Okta for distribution to your end users.
    • iOS apps – You can upload only private, enterprise-signed apps to Okta for distribution to your end users.
