Creating a Policy

When you create a policy, you define specific users and device types to which the policy applies:

Each policy applies to users listed as its User tags.

Each policy can have one of three Device User Mode settings:

BYO: The policy is applied to a user’s BYO devices only.

Corporate Owned: The policy is applied to a user’s corporate owned devices only.

Both (BYO and Corporate Owned): The policy is applied to all of a user’s devices.

This enables a user to have different policies for different device types.

This section details the steps to create a new policy:

1.Select the Workspaces menu.

2.Select the Policies tab.

3.Click Add to add a new policy.

5.Specify the User tags and LDAP Group for the policy. For example:

6.Select the required Device Owner Mode. This property determines whether this policy is applied to a user’s devices that are BYO, corporate owned, or both. For example:

7.Click Save.

The policy is created with an edited state.

8.You can now add applications and properties to the policy before applying the policy to mobile devices. For example:

9.After you have completed editing the policy, click Publish.

The policy's state changes from edited to publishing and then published.

This applies the policy to all mobile devices that use the policy.
