Create policies for Android devices

Depending on whether you want to manage a work profile on an Android device or the entire device itself, there are a range of different policies available.

  • If you want to create a new policy for Android Enterprise, first proceed as described here.
  • Select Android Enterprise Policies as the policy that you want to add.
  • First enter a name for the policy in the field below as well as an optional descrip­tion.
  • You can use the filter to display the existing policies, depending on the type of registration (enrollment type). Depending on whether you use company-owned fully managed devices, private devices with a work profile or company-owned devices with a work profile (Work Profile on Company Owned Devices). The Reset to defaults button resets all changes you have made to the default settings.

Note! Detailed information about the policies Action on device basic integrity check failure and Action on CTS Profile Match check failure can be found here.

Policies for private devices with a work profile (example)

  • Under Filter policies by enrollment type select Work Profile (arrow in illus.).

  • Now, select the desired option(s), in the example, the checkbox Allow use of Camera has been disabled (arrow in illus.).
  • Close the dialog by clicking OK.

In the next step you need to assign the policy:

  • Select the appropriate policy and click on Assign.
  • Now select the users, groups or devices to whom you would like to assign the policy.

Note! You can also assign the policies under Control Panel→ Users or Group Templates.

The outcome in the example: The camera app in the work profile has been disabled and is grayed out (left illus.). The  slider for the policy in the Cortado app is also grayed out (right illus.).

Policies for Fully Managed Devices (example)

  • Under Filter policies by enrollment type select Fully Managed Device (arrow in illus.).

  • First enter a name for the policy in the field below as well as an optional descrip­tion. 
  • Now, select the desired option(s).
  • In the example, the checkbox Allow factory reset has been disabled. Users are denied the right to reset the device (lower arrow in the illus.).
  • Close the dialog by clicking OK.

In the next step you need to assign the policy:

  • Select the appropriate policy and click on Assign (illus. above).
  • Now select the users, groups or devices to whom you would like to assign the policy.

Note! You can also assign the policies under Control Panel→ Users or Group Templates.

The outcome in the example: The slider for the policy in the Cortado app is grayed out (arrow in left illus.). The action cannot be performed by the user (right illus.).

With the help of a policy you can put devices into kiosk mode. How this works, we show you in our How-To: How to set up Kiosk mode for fully managed Android devices.

Set up password policies

Password policies can be set for all three enrollment methods. However, on devices with a work profile, the policies apply only to the work profile and not to the entire device.

  • Under Filter policies by enrollment type, select an enrollment type. In the example, the Work Profile on Company Owned Device type was selected.

  • Then define your password policies (example in the image).
  • Close the dialog by clicking OK.

In the next step you need to assign the policy:

  • Select the appropriate policy and click on Assign (illus. above).
  • Now select the users, groups or devices to whom you would like to assign the policy.

Note! You can also assign the policies under Control Panel→ Users or Group Templates.

The outcome in the example: The users will be requested to define a compliant password/PIN for access to the device(s) (left illus.). As long as a sufficiently strong password has not been set, the work apps remain locked (right illus.).
