Managed Open In for non-free iOS Apps



I've tried creating an app policy for a non-free iOS App (GoodReader) on Afaria 7 SP5 that we want to use with Open In Management.

It seems, that if I want to deploy the app via MDM Protocol, i need to add redemption codes to the app policy first:

I am able to create the app policy anyway, without "Deploy using MDM protocol", and i can then install the app on an enrolled device via Afaria and the App Store.

But the app then doesn't seem to be 'managed':

Thus, E-Mail Attachments from the managed Exchange Account can not be opened with GoodReader as we are using Open In Management:

Now I have a few questions concerning this:

- Can we be sure, that the app will be 'managed' when we have purchased redemption codes and added them to the app policy

- Is this also possible with an iOS VPP App policy? What are pros and cons of creating a normal iOS App Policy versus using an iOS VPP App policy?

- When an App has already been purchased on a Device, will the MDM app deployment know this and not charge it to the VPP or will the app then be purchased twice?

Thanks for helping.
