Volume Purchase Program: Managed distribution now available for OS X & iOS apps
Volume Purchase Program for Education / VPP for Education Guide (10/2013) / Migrating from redemption codes to managed distribution
Managed distribution requires iOS 7 or later or OS X Mavericks v10.9 or later. Devices that use a prior version of iOS or OS X can't be assigned apps or books through managed distribution using MDM.
MDM is required for managed distribution. Make sure you have an MDM solution in place and it’s linked to your VPP account before you request migration. Profile Manager in OS X Server (Mavericks) supports managed distribution. For other MDM solutions, check with your MDM provider to ensure they support VPP managed distribution under iOS 7 and OS X Mavericks v10.9.
Each user much have a personal Apple ID to use apps and books assigned through managed distribution.
If you reviewed the requirements and want to migrate from redemption codes to managed distribution for all previous purchases made with your VPP account, submit your request using the online business
support request form. Select “Migrate redemption codes to managed distribution” in the menu at the top of the form.
