I also just found out that after trying to download an app with the new Managed option, it doesn't give you a VPP code spreadsheet. As of right now I can't figure out what to do with the app I just purchased. The Apple website says to create a token to use with our MDM but I don't see a way to do that yet. I called support and they weren't sure yet either where it just happened so I don't recommend trying it yet. Just my two cents though.
Download the new VPP Guide http://images.apple.com/education/docs/vpp_education_guide_en_Oct2013.pdf
You can get the MDM token from Account Summary section of VPP
Now once you get the token I am at a loss of how to integrate that into the JSS. I suspect this is a new feature that needs implemented by JAMF
Looking at the Account summary page now. I see...
Managed Distribution: Easily assign apps or books to users on iOS 7 or later or on OS X 10.9 or later using a Mobile Device Management (MDM) solution. If you have an MDM solution, you can download a token which can be used to link your MDM solution with your VPP account. Once linked, you can invite users, assign apps and books, and revoke and reassign apps directly through your MDM solution. This token will expire after one year or after a password reset.
... but there is no link to download the token next to that. Anybody else having this issue?
Are we able to get codes once we have already requested the token? I need to deploy the app within the week and I don't think the update will have come by then....
Old question but...
You can still acquire redeemable codes by selecting the "Redeemable Codes" distribution type prior to order review. This is only available with Paid Apps.
I have a screen shot on FB... we'll see if it links properly...
You get one shot at picking tokens vs. codes, so short answer for @Ifarrugia5 is no, you have to pick at purchase. Apple has communicated that at some point organizations will be able to convert codes but it was explained that this will be all or nothing. As of today, tokens are a bad choice as I only know of one MDM besides apple supporting them at all.
they have weighed in on that...it's a one way street...they will convert unredeemed codes to managed distribution licenses, but not the other way around. For now, we are buying codes with the intent on using managed distribution and are using Joe Yamada's in-house app method so we don't burn all the codes...that works hopefully only until this summer.
It's kind of a hush-hush thing. Also definitely a "JAMF really doesn't support this" thing and while it's not perfect, it is working as a good placeholder for us until everything from Apple begins to take shape this summer.
Here's the JAMF Nation thread on his in-house app method. Joe also did a session at JNUC.
Well then, that's really odd.
Check page 79 of the Casper Suite Administrator's Guide 9.4.pdf to see the exact VPP Account process.
If you don't see what is listed there, then I'd recommend contacting JAMF support.
Alternately... perhaps you're using a JSS account that doesn't have permission to modify VPP Account settings.
