Jitsi Meet unique id

Hi there!

I would like to publish the fdroid version of Jitsi Meet within our Enterprise Mobility Management/Unified Endpoint Management Sophos Mobile. Since we use Android Enterprise, I have to create a private app in Google Play for work.

This is not possible because of the unique id - please see screenshot below:

There is a corresponding discussion in the Sophos forum: https://community.sophos.com/products/sophos-central/f/general/120244/add-apk-to-sophos-central-mobile

I would like to kindly ask if it’s possible to publish a fdroid version of Jitsi Meet with a unique id that can be used as private app in Google Play for work so that I can roll out this version to our users?

Kind regards

Christian

And you don’t build your own app with your chosen appID because? Not sure why an Enterprise like yours depends on volunteers work like F-Droid.

BTW, funny thing, the appID is not “taken by F-Droid” but by “the app developers”: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.jitsi.meet

/PS: Why not deploy F-Droid client and a local F-Droid repo for your Enterprise instead?

Like @Licaon_Kter said, you can build the app with a changed package id yourself.

Alternatively we can discuss contracting work. You can find my contact info here, if that’s something that would work for you: https://bubu1.eu

Thank you guyes!

We are just a small public service company, and I was asked by our data protection officer if there would be a simple solution to publish the frdoid version within our EMM…

I will take a closer look at building the app with a changed package id by myself, like @Licaon_Kter mentioned.
