Removing a Business policy

Updated on April 9th, 2021

Business policy is a Miradore feature helping admins to automate installations, like application and configuration profile deployments, on devices. This article explains how to remove installation items from the business policy and delete the unnecessary policy from a site. Also, you can find instructions on how to remove the business policy from a device by removing a device from the scope of the policy and deleting its policy-related installations.

Remove items from a business policy

All changes made to a business policy update also the applicable devices. If you remove applications, configuration profiles, files or certificates from a business policy, those are removed also from the devices in the scope.

To remove application, configuration profile, file or certificate, go to the Business policy page (Management > Business policies). Choose the item you want to remove and press the trash can.

Deleting a business policy

Please notice that when you delete a business policy, the configuration profiles, applications, files and certificates enforced with it stay on the devices.

To remove the business policy navigate to Management > Business policies where you can see the current list of policies. Select the business policy and click Delete action to open the wizard and delete the policy.

Removing a device from the scope of a business policy

The scope of a business policy is defined with device or user tags. All rules of the business policy apply to the device when it or the user is having a required tag. If you want to remove the device from the scope of the business policy, remove all the related tags from the device and its user.

Device tag

When you remove the tags, the business policy rules do not apply to the device anymore. However, removing tags does not remove the policy-related installations from a device.

If a policy has no tags, it applies to all devices. In case, you want to exclude some devices from the scope of the policy, you need to add a tag for the policy. Make sure the devices do not have the tag. In general, we recommend using tags to manage policies easier.

Remove policy-related installations from a device

After you have removed a device from the scope of the business policy, you can remove the policy-related installations. To uninstall the business policy item, go to the Device page (Management > Devices > Device).

On the Main tab, you can see the deployed applications, certificates, files, and configuration profiles. Remove the item from the trash can icon, which starts the undeployment of the item. The Windows Advanced applications are the exception to this, the trash can does not cause the application to uninstall.

Remove deployments from a device

You can also remove application from the Application version page (Management > Applications > Application > Version)
