Device Configuration XML For Server Sync

Client Device configuration settings can be configured remotely using policies.

For most clients, if the user changes the configuration locally, then the remote settings configured by the Administrator will override those settings the next time the client refreshes its settings.

To set a device configuration for a policy:

  1. Open a browser and log in the Admin Portal.
  2. From the left navigation pane, select Settings.
  3. To open the list of policies, select the Policies tab.
  4. Click the the edit icon for the policy that you want to configure.
  5. Click on the Device Configuration tab.
  6. In Client Configuration, paste or type in the following remote device configuration XML. 

            <!-- XML for ServerSync App -->
  7. Replace the <!-- XML for ServerSync App  --> line with the parameters that you need using the descriptions in Table 1. 

Table 1. The following XML tags are supported for the ServerSync device configuration.




limit_folder_countNumber of folders to sync. If key is not specified, then there are no folders to sync.<limit_folder_count>0</limit_folder_count>





Depending upon the number of folders specified in the limit_folder_count, you will need to have the appropriate number of entries.

The folder value is specified using 5 parameters using the following format

<REMOTE FOLDER> = E.g.: /john/folder1

<LOCAL FOLDER> = E.g: C:\data\localfolder

<PERMISSION> = 1 - Allow NTFS permissions to be applied to local folder as per permissions of the folder on the remote Server, 0 - Deny NTFS permissions to be applied
