Create Managed Apple IDs in Apple Business Manager
Managed Apple ID structure
Managed Apple IDs can’t contain more than 256 characters.
A unique user name to the left of the at sign (@).
You can use information from the user’s account, such as an email address or other account name, as the unique user name. You can also create a unique user name from their names, initials, or ID numbers. If two users end up with the same user name, Apple Business Manager will add a number to differentiate them.
For example, scottmiller1@ would be the unique user name.
Text immediately to the right of the @ sign.
Apple recommends using “appleid.” as the text for all accounts.
For example, scottmiller1@appleid. would be the beginning of the full Managed Apple ID.
The domain of your organization.
For example, a fully complete Managed Apple ID would be firstname.lastname@example.org.
Important: This should be your organization’s registered domain name. Don’t use a domain name you created because this can cause all created Managed Apple IDs to fail.
Be sure you use the same formula for all Managed Apple IDs in your organization.
Managed Apple IDs, roles, and passwords
When you create each account, you assign a role that defines the privileges for that account.
Create Managed Apple IDs with custom domain names

Managed Apple IDs can now be used with that domain.
