AppConfig support for all apps

Hi folks,

AppConfig is a de facto standard provided by EMM solution to manage app configuration in a corporate scenario (see  https://www.appconfig.org).

The main idea is to standardize the way for a company to prefill user info for a mobile devices to avoid manual configuration (like selecting standard / SSO / Google login, entering username, etc.).

For example, mattermost support this capabilities (as described on the doc here  https://docs.mattermost.com/mobile/mobile-appconfig.html) and it work really well.

AppConfig combined to a SAML IDP that support Mobile SSO mean user being automatically setup and authenticated on a brand new mobile device.

SAML IDP and Mobile SSO work well with RingCentral, but AppConfig is missing.

It could be really cool to add this feature.

AppConfig is made for iOS and Android, but you could achieve the same for macOS with MCX and Windows with GPO or MDM payload.

Take a look at this blog post that I wrote  https://www.abelionni.com/en/2018/10/identity-and-device-management/ you will see on the second video (iOS Apps fully managed by UEM and IDM) an app that support both SAML IDP with Mobile SSO and AppConfig, and you will see on the forth video (iOS App automatically set and authenticated from the user ID) the user experience from the same setup but with partial support in RingCentral.

As you can see, user experience is way better in the fully managed way, it just work.

Thanks
