Configure profile policies by device platform

Specify the policies for device controls, such as the security policy or application policy. After specifying the policies, you can directly apply the profile to the assigned organization or group. Going forward, for devices running a Work Profile on a company-owned device, KM now supports Knox policies.

When applying system updates to devices running Android 9.0 (API 29) and higher, IT admins can now use the Freeze Period option to delay deployment of system update to target devices. The following are important points to consider:

  • Support for all update policies—The Freeze Period option supports all kinds of update policy such as automatic, postpone, and windowed.
  • Freeze periods apply one at a time—Currently, IT admins cannot set up freeze periods that overlap each other. IT admins can set up multiple freeze periods but only one freeze period applies to devices at one time.
  • Freeze period duration—IT admins can add a total freeze period of 90 days.
  • Multiple freeze periods—Two freeze periods cannot overlap each other and must remain separated by a minimum of 60 days.

To add policies to a profile, complete the following steps:

NOTE — For detailed information about each of the look up items, see List of lookup items.
