Files device policy

You can add script files to Endpoint Management that perform certain functions for users, or you can add document files that you want Android device users to be able to access on their devices. When you add the file, you can also specify the directory in which you want the file to be stored on the device. For example, if you want Android users to receive a company document or .pdf file, you can deploy the file to the device and let users know where the file is located.

You can add the following file types with this policy:

  • Text-based files (.xml, .html, .py, and so on)
  • Other files, such as documents, pictures, spreadsheets, or presentations

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.

  • Destination file name: Optionally, type a different name for the file if it must be changed before being deployed on a device.
  • Copy file only if different: In the list, select whether to copy the file if it is different from the existing file. The default is to copy the file only if it is different.
