Restrictions Payload

A restrictions payload disables specific applications or functionality on Android or iOS devices. Each device can only use one restrictions payload. If there are multiple restrictions payloads applied to the folder the device is in, only the payload with the highest priority will be sent to the device. You can view the payloads that have been sent to the device by viewing device details.

When you are using a restrictions payload, ensure you are not locking down functionality that is required for other operations. For example, watch for the following scenarios:

Do not block the Settings application if you are using a passcode payload, since the user needs to access Settings in order to set or change a passcode.

Ensure software payloads have been distributed and the desired apps have been installed on the device before you disallow installing apps.

Ensure your white listed apps are installed on the device before you apply a payload to enable white listing.
