The Business policy feature enables you to automate the deployment of applications, configuration profiles, files, and certificates. The feature is available for Enterprise Plan customers.
This article instructs how you can edit the business policy when you need to, for example, modify the scope of it or update the version of the related application. If you are interested in reading how to get started with business policies, please see the article about creating the business policy.
Edit the details of a business policy
To edit a business policy, go to Management > Business policies. Open the business policy by double-clicking it or with the arrow at the end of the row. You can edit the details of the business policy from the main view of the page.
Disable the business policy before you start editing it. Enabled business policy is active and affects the applicable devices every time these sync with Miradore. When you have made the modifications, enable the business policy.
Administrators can add and remove tags of the business policy on the field Scope. Editing tags should do due diligence since the tags define the group of the devices the business policy applies. For example, removing all tags from the business policy makes it apply to all devices in the system. Read about tagging, in case you want to learn more.
If you want to edit the name or the description of a business policy, you can do it on the Main tab. Press the Edit at the bottom left corner. When you have done the editing, save your changes with Update.
Add and remove items to a business policy
You can edit the business policy by adding and removing items. You can add multiple applications, configuration profiles, files, or certificates at once. On the Business policy page, choose the item you want to add from the dropdown button Add. Then, follow the instructions of the wizard.
You can remove a configuration profile, file, or certificate with the trash can item next to it.
If you want to remove an application:
- Go to the Applications tab and select the application.
- Select Remove selected items -option under Actions.
Please note, that removing applications, configuration profiles, files, or certificates from business policies removes them also from the applicable devices.
Updating an application on a business policy
With Miradore, you can manage multiple versions of the application and different configurations of managed applications. If you have used business policies to automate the application deployment, you might want to update the application time to time. When you want to edit an application on a business policy, go to the Application tab of the policy.
- Disable the business policy.
- Select the application you want to update.
- Choose Edit application from Actions.
The action opens a wizard where you can update the application on the business policy.
- Update the new version of the in-house application (APK, IPA and PKG).
- Edit the deployment method of the application, if there are multiple ones available.
- Update the configuration of the managed store applications.
Please note, that you can deploy managed store applications with business policies, but the policy will not update these applications automatically on devices.
When you have made the changes to the business policy, remember to enable it.
