Group policies for managing mobile devices

18 March 2024

ID 214502

A group policy is a package of settings for managing mobile devices that belong to an administration group and for managing mobile apps installed on the devices.

You can use a policy to configure settings of both individual devices and a group of devices. For a group of devices, administration settings can be configured in the window of group policy properties.

Each parameter represented in a policy has a "lock" attribute, which shows whether the setting is allowed for modification in the policies of nested hierarchy levels (for nested groups and secondary Administration Servers), in local application settings.

The values of settings configured in the policy and in local application settings are saved on the Administration Server, distributed to mobile devices during synchronization, and saved to devices as current settings. If the user has specified other values of settings that have not been "locked", during the next synchronization of the device with the Administration Server the new values of settings are relayed to the Administration Server and saved in the local settings of the application instead of the values that had been previously specified by the administrator.

To keep corporate security of Android mobile devices up to date, you can monitor users' devices for compliance with corporate security requirements.
