Creating a business policy
1. You need have an administrator or editor permission in the Miradore site.
2. Navigate to Management > Business policies and click Add at the top of the page.
3. Define the group of devices, the scope, to which the business policy will be applied. Use tags, if you don’t want to apply the business policy to all devices. Editors can use here the existing tags, whereas administrators can also create new ones.
4. Define the name and description of the business policy. The wizard will also show you how many devices the business policy applies to.
5. When you have created the business policy item, open it from the Business policies list.
6. Add applications, configuration profiles, files and certificates to the business policy.
It is good to pay attention to few things when you add an application to a business policy.
- All versions of the application are available on the first step of the wizard. Select the version you need for the business policy. You can also select multiple applications from the list.
- On the second step of the wizard, you can choose the application deployment method, if there are several available ones. Also, select here the configuration for the managed store applications.

Note: The default status of the created business policy is Disabled. When the business policy is ready, change the status of the policy to Enabled and it will be applied to the defined devices.
Definining the scope with tags
You can either choose to apply the business policy to all devices or use tags to restrict the scope of it. The device is included in the scope of the business policy when a device, or its user, has all the configured tags. The business policy is not applied to devices missing any of the required tags. There is an example of the business policy applicability in the table below.
|Business policy #1 with tags (A) & (B)||Business policy #2 with tag (B)||Business policy #3 with tag (C)|
|Device with tag (B)||–||–|
|Device with tags (A) & (B)||–|
|Device with tags (A) & (C)||–||–|
|Device with tags (B) & (C)||–|
