App configuration device policy

You can remotely configure apps that support managed configuration by deploying:

  • An XML configuration file (called a property list, or plist) to iOS devices
  • Or, key/value pairs for Windows 10 phone, tablet, or desktop devices.

The configuration specifies various settings and behaviors in the app. XenMobile pushes the configuration to devices when the user installs the app. The actual settings and behaviors that you can configure depend on the app and are beyond the scope of this article.

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

  • Dictionary content: Type, or copy and paste, the XML property list (plist) configuration information.
  • Click Check Dictionary. XenMobile verifies the XML. If there are no errors, you see Valid XML below the content box. If any syntax errors appear below the content box, you must correct them before you can continue.
