Rebar iOS Managed Configuration

Monkton, Inc. 2019

Rebar enables enterprises to deploy Managed Configurations via MDM/EMM through the Managed Configuration protocols. The setting values are described in detail on the App Config file page.

By default, we support several settings to configure and manage apps built on Rebar. This also enables developers to implement their own settings within their apps to have managed configuration settings of their own

More information on Managed Config is available:

Rebar Managed Config

Rebar itself has a few managed configuration settings. Each of these settings will override settings set in app-config.json for each project.

  • rebar.api.url: defines the API url for the app
  • rebar.color: defines the color of the Rebar controlled screens
  • rebar.auth: allows configuration of the authentication provider, derivedkit or credentials are accepted values
  • rebar.tls.pinned: defines an array of strings for the TLS SHA512 hashes for pinned SSL certificates
  • rebar.useOCSP: if OCSP is enabled for SSL certificates
  • rebar.continueOnOCSPError: if the app should ignore OCSP errors

Configuring in the Rebar ESB

Configuring the MDM Managed App Config is handled through the Rebar ESB portal. When you view a Rebar ESB App Bundle (Configuration / Apps / View App) you can tap the "Managed App Config" button. This will enable you to enter JSON values that map to the Config key values.

Custom Settings

Consuming custom managed configuration settings is simple. Rebar's RebarManagedConfiguration class provides an access point to the managed configuration settings for the app. It encapsulates the logic necessary to access the Managed Configuration settings for the app.

Retrieving a value is simple:

let keyedValue = RebarManagedConfig.default.getString(withKey: "my-key")

Registering for updates during runtime is a breeze:

RebarManagedConfig.default.handler {
	// Process updates
}
