Device Configuration XML for Desktop Edit

Client Device configuration settings can be configured remotely by specifying the configuration XML 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 policy that you want to configure, and then click the edit icon ().
  5. Click on the Device Configuration tab.
  6. In Client Configuration, paste or type in the following remote device configuration XML. 

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

    Table 1. The following XML tags are supported for Desktop Edit device configuration.
