You want to know how to build and test an in-house build of the Symantec Mobile Management Agent application for iOS Devices.
The build and test process consists of the following five tasks.
Xcode requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later, and Xcode 4.2 or later.
NOTE: This step is needed to first test the agent build before distributing it to all users.
Apple uses the Development Provisioning Profile to specify project members and the devices to be used for testing. To create and install a Development Provisioning Profile, log in and follow the instructions at https://developer.apple.com/ios/manage/provisioningprofiles/howto.action.
The string files contain the information that appears in the settings of the application on the device.
Warning: When you edit LocalizableStrings-en.plist or localize it to a new language, do not change the names of the keys on the left. Change only the string values on the right.
The Target settings determine which devices receive the agent and the app ID that is used by the agent.
Note: The simulator lacks the functionality required to test a build. Applications built with the Mobile Management Agent template will not load in the simulator. Only test the Agent on a physical device.
After the application installs and launches successfully, build the application for internal deployment. Use the following steps to build your application and set up the distribution URL.
STEP 1- Creating a Distribution Certificate
NOTE: If you already have a Distribution Certificate as a Team Agent, skip this step.
STEP 2- Creating a Distribution Provisioning Profile
NOTE: If you already have a Distribution Provisioning Profile for a previous version of this agent, skip this step.
STEP 3- Building your Application with Xcode for Distribution
STEP 4.- Creating the App Store package
NOTE: Only create the App Store package after successfully testing the application.

STEP 5- Creating a distribution URL
This step uses IIS Manager to host the agent app installation. Users download the in-house agent for installation from this folder.
To distribute the application:
