Workspace configuration

IT admins—and device users, if granted requisite rights at the policy level— can customize Workspace configuration on target devices. This feature offers IT admins the ability to grant or revoke device users' rights to:

The following sections provide detailed examples for these tasks.

1. Rename Workspace and Personal tabs

In certain cases, device users may prefer to customize the Work and Personal tabs on their device to better represent their use and available features. The following example describes the process to change the device configuration policy to allow changing tab names.

  1. In your UEM console, open the Device Configuration Profile that is associated with your target devices, and then on the middle navigation menu, click Properties. The Device Configuration Policy Properties page opens.
  2. On the Properties page, in the Settings list, click Configured. The OEMConfig page for the Device Configuration Policy opens.
  3. On the OEMConfig page, next to Work profile policies, click Configure. The Work profile policies (Policy Owner) page opens.
  4. On this page, next to the Work profile configuration title, click Configure. The Work profile configuration page opens.
  5. On this page, next to the Enable work profile configuration controls title, click True to enable work profile configuration controls and apply these changes to your target devices.
  6. In the Customize work profile tab name field, enter CorporateTasks.
  7. In the Customize work profile tab name field, enter CorporateTasks.
  8. Click OK. The new tab names are deployed to target devices based on your deployment settings.

2. Install apps from the Personal space to the Workspace

Depending upon your IT security policies, IT admins may want to restrict device users from installing personal—or more specifically, non-work related apps—in the Workspace. Installing apps that are not specific to your organization or that are not approved for use within your network may compromise the security of the apps and data in the Workspace on the device. The following example describes the process to restrict users from installing personal apps in the Work profile.

  1. In your UEM console, open the Device Configuration Profile that is associated with your target devices, and then on the middle navigation menu, click Properties. The Device Configuration Policy Properties page opens.
  2. On the Properties page, in the Settings list, click Configured. The OEMConfig page for the Device Configuration Policy opens.
  3. On the OEMConfig page, next to Work profile policies, click Configure. The Work profile policies (Policy Owner) page opens.
  4. On this page, next to the Allow adding apps from personal space to work profile title, click False.
  5. Click OK. The new installation restriction is deployed to target devices based on your deployment settings.
