Push purchased apps and books to users and user groups with Profile Manager
Apps and books you purchase through Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager can be pushed to users’ and groups’ devices automatically.
Note: When distributing apps and books to users with Managed Apple IDs from Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager, the role who purchases apps and books must use their own Managed Apple ID from the same Apple School Manager organization.
Create users or bind to another supported directory service. For information, see Create a user account or Create a group in the macOS Server User Guide.
Install the Apple School Manager or Apple Business Manager token. For information, see View app and book purchases in the macOS Server User Guide.

A window appears letting you select apps to push for that user or group.

The selected apps or books begin to download to the associated devices. Active Tasks in the sidebar shows the status of this task.
Note: If any apps that aren’t already installed on a device are pushed using the Push Apps task, they’ll be automatically removed when a user unenrolls from Profile Manager.
