Raw integral values representing the size in bytes may also be used. For example, if you set to 3000 (above 8), TouchDown will limit to the closest kilobyte unit shown above.

String value that specifies a list of suppression codes to apply to TouchDown. To prevent TouchDown from displaying certain options to the end user. The list of codes should be comma separated, with at least one comma in the string.

SupressApplicationPIN
Type: Boolean

Set to True if you do not want the application to show a PIN prompt, and you do not want the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) PIN to be enforced by TouchDown. This is useful if the MDM decides to enforce a device level PIN. If False, TouchDown will prompt for pin/passcode only once.

To change that behavior, set this policy to False and add the policy named MaxInactivityTimeDeviceLock, which prompts the user for a pin/passcode after a period of inactivity.
