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.

General policies

Policies for Fully Managed Devices

General policies

The policies in the General (upper arrow in illus.) tab apply to both work profiles and fully managed devices.

  • 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 Camera has been disabled (lower arrow in illus.).

Note! The Outgoing Android Beam and Bluetooth sharing functions are not allowed within the working profile by default for security reasons. They cannot currently be controlled via the Cortado Management Console. This will only be possible in a later version of Cortado MDM.

  • 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 traffic light for the policy in the Cortado app is red (right illus.).

Note! Detailed information about the Policies Basic Integrity failure action and CTS Profile Match failure action policies listed under SafetyNet can be found here.

Policies for Fully Managed Devices

There are a multitude of policies available for fully managed devices.

  • Open the Fully Managed Devices tab (arrow in illus.).
  • First enter a name for the policy in the field below as well as an optional descrip­tion. The policy name can’t be changed later.
  • Now, select the desired option(s).
  • In the example, users are denied the right to reset the device (lower arrow in the illus.).

  • 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 traffic light for the policy in the Cortado app is red (arrow in left illus.). The option Erase all data is grayed out on the Android device (arrow in the 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.

Password

In the Password tab you can specify the policies for the device password or the password for the work profile. The users will then be automatically requested to define a compliant password/PIN for access to the device(s). 

  • 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.
