Allow installation of apps from the company portal without AppleID verification
When using user licenses, users are prompted for their AppleID password when installing apps from the Company Portal.
After inputting the password, the user can install as many apps as they want but this will expire after 15/20 minutes or so which echoes the default App Store behaviour. Thing is, changing the App Store settings to 'Save Password for Free Items' has no effect. Neither does using TouchID.
Something specific about the Comp Portal causes the requirement for AppleID verification which is a massive problem for us as we manage the AppleIDs in IT, the users don't know the passwords as they should have no need for them.
For us it is difficult to manage application deployments using device groups, particularly as there is no method of creating a naming convention or assigning devices to a particular category (only users can amend this themselves but it cant be controlled from the portal). So I understand the need to be able to remove the requirement for a prompt when user licensing is preferred.

If you use VPP and the deployment is deployed to a device group, a personal Apple ID and password is not required.
