If two similar Knox policies are applied to a device with an MDM, which one takes precedence?
Last updated July 26th, 2023
Any Samsung Knox device managed with a supported MDM.
If a device is managed by two MDMs or if it is managed by an MDM and also by EAS policies, the stricter Knox policy takes precedence.
For example, lets say 2 different password policies are pushed to a device in the same day.
Policy 1: Requires at least 5 alphanumeric characters and one symbol in the password.
Policy 2: Only Requires 6 alphanumeric characters.
The MDM policy that is stricter takes precedent. In this case, it is policy 1.
