I think you need User Enrollment
User Enrollment is designed for devices owned by the user and is integrated with Managed Apple IDs to establish a user identity on the device. Managed Apple IDs are part of the User Enrollment profile, and the user must successfully authenticate in order for enrollment to be completed. Managed Apple IDs can be used alongside a personal Apple ID that the user has already signed in with. Managed apps and accounts use a Managed Apple ID, and personal apps and accounts use a personal Apple ID.
My school has a Bring Your Own Device program where students bring in personal iPads for school use. Since these are family-owned we do not wish to install any school profiles or enrol them in our Apple School Manager or Meraki MDM.
Prior to ASM we would purchase a small number of paid apps in the Volume Purchase program web store using the education discount. This let us download CSV files of App Store redeemable codes which we could distribute to students who then "owned" the app and were responsible for install, updates, etc. This worked very well and went very smoothly and quickly.
The transition to ASM has removed the option to use redeemable codes. We can only "gift" or assign apps to users or devices that are enrolled in ASM or Meraki, something we do not want to do with BYOD iPads.
Our workaround is to visit classrooms and physically plug student iPads into a machine running Apple Configurator. Configurator lets us distribute volume apps directly to student devices bypassing any MDM enrolment or registration. As you can imagine this is time-consuming and requires students to unlock their device and tap "Trust" when plugging into our Configurator machine.
Does anyone have a workflow that can:
