Relution Shared Device
Relution comes with its own multi-user mode for iOS devices. For this, users log in to the devices via the
Relution Agent with an existing Relution user (account). A (managed) Apple ID is not necessary. With Relution, it is also possible to log in with an LDAP user account. Unlike Apple’s multi-user mode,
Relution Shared Device mode can be conveniently enabled and disabled via the appropriate policy configuration.
Relution Shared Device mode installs all required apps at user login and uninstalls them automatically at user logout. This automatically deletes all content temporarily created in the apps from the devices. In this way, Relution ensures privacy-compliant use of devices when used across users via
Relution Shared Device mode.
The reinstallation of apps can cause significant load peaks in the network. Therefore, the
App Conformance configuration should be kept as lean as possible. In this case, the
positive list (Allowlist) should contain only very few and small apps as required apps. Users can easily install apps from the Relution App Store via the Relution Agent, or have them installed in the school context by a teacher using the Relution Teacher App and a teaching profile.
Relution Shared Device mode is used in combination with Apple
Shared iPad functionality, no uninstallation of installed apps takes place. In this use case, data protection-compliant work is only possible if users log in as guests in Apple
Shared iPad mode. In
Guest mode, all temporary data on the devices is automatically deleted by the Apple
Shared iPad functionality after guest logout.

The first four options of the
Relution Shared Deviceconfiguration are the most important ones. First, you have to decide if only the user-specific apps installed via
Auto-Deploymentsshould be deleted when the user logs out, or, if all apps installed via Relution, should be deleted. Depending on the configuration, the second configuration ensures that more apps are uninstalled.
The checkbox for disabling

The checkbox for option
