XenMobile Server Current Release

Files device policy

You can add and deploy files for users to access on their Android and Android Enterprise devices. You specify the directory where you want to store the file on the device. For example, you want users to receive a company document or .pdf file. Deploy the file to devices and let users know where the file is located.

Android devices don’t support running scripts natively. Users need third-party software to run scripts.

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.
