Distributing MDM agent settings

Tools > Configuration > Agent settings

Agent settings for mobile devices allow you to configure device settings from the Endpoint Manager console. Agent Settings control how Endpoint Manager services and other components operate on managed devices. These components and their associated settings can be deployed to your managed devices as part of the initial agent configuration, separate install or update tasks, and change settings tasks.

If a component is installed on a managed device, changes to that component's settings don't require redeployment of the whole agent. Settings are stored as XML files and the managed device only needs an updated XML file to reconfigure how an installed component operates. Changes to a component setting are propagated to all devices with that setting installed automatically.
