Blue Cedar Integration Platform enables you to integrate services into iOS and Android apps. These services are available in the form of integration accelerators—modules that you can integrate with your apps without having to write any code.

The Platform is currently available for Beta users, with either of these integration accelerators.

  • Blue Cedar Enforce Integration Accelerator: Use the Blue Cedar Platform to integrate apps with Blue Cedar security policies.
  • Blue Cedar Integration Accelerator for BlackBerry: Use the Blue Cedar Platform to integrate apps with the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK.

The Mobile Client technology includes the software that is added to the integrated mobile app, that is:

  • The chosen integration accelerator with its enabled options.
  • The Blue Cedar code that integrates the accelerator with the app.

Anything with a

is new with Platform 4.8.x / Mobile Client 4.0.6.

What's new in the Integration Platform

Skip code signing
(green star)

The signing options now include an option to skip code signing, so that you can download an integrated app without app signing information.

What's new in the Integration Accelerator for BlackBerry

Blue Cedar Platform 4.4+ allows you to enable these BlackBerry Dynamics policies for your integration:

  • Network interception

  • Secure storage

Open issues/limitations

  • Browser support: The integration platform interface supports Chrome and Firefox browsers. (Safari, Edge, and Internet Explorer are not currently supported.)

Limitations with integrating the BlackBerry Dynamics SDK:

  • Client certificates: Our current integration code does not allow an app to use a client certificate provided by the UEM/Connector. (BCP-1812, Android)
  • iPhone ARMv7 devices: BlackBerry Dynamics does not integrate into apps on ARM v7 Apple devices (32-bit CPUs) such as iPhone 5 or 5c. (BCP-1523, iOS)
  • ClipboardManager/drag and drop: The ClipboardManager Dynamics API is not integrated into apps since there is no 1:1 mapping to Android's ClipboardManager. Apps usually do not call the ClipboardManager directly to perform drag and drop operations. (BCP-1638, Android)
  • BlackBerry Secure Network/Transport: Turning on/off Secure Network/Transport from the integration platform does not affect the integration. (BCP-704)
  • Java SQLite: SQLite interception is not functional yet on Android. Apps using SQLite do not write/read encrypted data. (BCP-1623, Android)
