Default Re: BES 5 - Application Management - Force all Apps to Update?

In BES 5, to my best knowledge, you can only push/force apps upgrades for apps that you have the source files on the server. It is not possible to force BB World apps.
Hi freak,

Thanks for that, I thought that was the case from my research that you can only explicitly update applications via a software push from the BES (which means having the source files on the server etc).
Management was hoping that BES had a functionality like we have with Apple or Android devices, whether they pretty much update all applications by themselves.
