Updating the server location in the Apple iOS client for BMC MyIT
Before users can download the BMC MyIT iOS client, you must update the BMC MyIT server location in the MyIT.plist and index.html files
Before you begin
Even if you are not rebranding the mobile client, you must follow the instructions in Rebranding BMC MyIT for Apple iOS to re-sign the client.
To update the server location
Open the download folder in the application installation directory.
(Windows default location) C:\Program Files\BMC Software\Smart_IT_MyIT\download
Edit the MyIT.plist file to replace the [HOSTNAME] and [PORT] entries in the following section with settings specific to your installation:
<!-- Replace [HOSTNAME] here with real host name accessible from outside 9000 is one configured at Tomcat dir/conf/server.xml --> <string>https://[HOSTNAME]:[PORT]/download/MyIT.ipa</string>
In the MyIT.plist file, replace the bundle-identifier entry with your App ID that you set up when re-signing the app (for example, com.companyName.MyIT):
Edit the index.html file to replace the [HOSTNAME] and [PORT] entries in the following section with settings specific to your installation. (9080 is the default port, but you can change this port number.)
<!-- Replace [HOSTNAME] here with real host name accessible from outside 9080 is one configured at Tomcat dir/conf/server.xml --> <li><a href="itms-services://?action=download-manifest&url=https://[HOSTNAME]:9080/download/myit/MyIT.plist">MyIT IPA</a></li>
Users can now download the Apple iOS client for BMC MyIT to an iPhone or iPad by using a browser on their mobile device. The Apple App Store is not involved in the process.
