How to create a business policy

Follow

Business policy enforcement is a Miradore Online feature that allows administrators to define business policies for devices. This means that chosen applications and configuration profiles, for example, passcode requirements and Wi-Fi configurations, can be automatically installed/enforced to specific devices.

This article shows how to create a business policy in Miradore Online. As an example we will create a business policy that enforces passcode requirements to all devices in the company's marketing and sales department. In addition, the business policy installs the Adobe Reader application and enables location tracking for Android devices.

 

1. Navigate to Mobile management > Business policies where you can see the current list of business policies that have been created.

 

2. Click the Create business policy from the page Actions menu. After that, a wizard for defining business policy rules should open on top of the window.

During the first step, enter a descriptive name and optionally a description for the business policy and press Next.

 

3. Define scope for the business policy. This means the group of devices to which the business policies applies.

You can either choose to apply the business policy to all devices or use device tagging to restrict the scope to devices with specific tags. For example, you can create separate business policies for the company's head and branch offices if the devices have been tagged correctly.

Note that you can configure multiple tags to the business policy. All of the configured tags must be defined to a device before it is included to the business policy scope.

In this following example, we designate business policy to all devices that contain a tag named marketing and sales.

When the scope has been configured press Next.

 

4. Select the configuration profiles for the business policy. The chosen configuration profiles are deployed to the devices.

In this following example we want to enforce passcode requirements for all platform (Android, iOS and Windows Phone) devices and enable location tracking for Android devices.

When configuration profiles have been selected press Next.

 

5. Select the applications for the business policy. The chosen applications are deployed to the devices. Note that application deployment is currently supported on Android and iOS devices.

In this following example we want install the Adobe Reader application.

When applications have been selected press Next.

 

6. Check that the business policy has been correctly configured. This wizard step shows an overview of the configuration and to how many devices it currently applies.

To create business policy press Create.

 

7. When the business policy has been created successfully, you will see a confirmation.

 

After the business policy has been created you can edit it's configuration, monitor progression (i.e. configuration profile deployments and application deployments) by opening the business policy page.
