Application control policies for unlisted applications

When you create a software configuration and assign it to user accounts so that you can send BlackBerry® Device Software, BlackBerry Java® Applications, and standard application settings to BlackBerry devices, you must configure whether the software configuration permits users to install and use applications that are not included in the software configuration (also known as unlisted applications). When you configure whether unlisted applications are permitted and optional or not permitted on BlackBerry devices, you must assign an application control policy for unlisted applications to the software configuration.

An application control policy for unlisted applications determines what unlisted applications are permitted on BlackBerry devices and what data the unlisted applications can access on BlackBerry devices. The BlackBerry Administration Service has two standard application control policies for unlisted applications: one for unlisted applications that are optional, and one for unlisted applications that are not permitted. You can change the default settings of the standard application control policy for unlisted applications that are optional, or you can create custom application control policies for unlisted applications that are optional.

For more information about the rule settings in application control policies for unlisted applications, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server Policy Reference Guide.

Configure the priority of application control policies for unlisted applications

You can assign multiple software configurations to user accounts. You can assign different application control policies for unlisted applications to different software configurations. You must configure the priority of the different application control policies for unlisted applications so that the BlackBerry® Policy Service can determine which application control policies to apply to user accounts when you assign multiple software configurations to user accounts.
  1. In the BlackBerry Administration Service, on the BlackBerry solution management menu, expand Software.
  2. Click Manage application control policies for unlisted applications.
  3. Click Set priority of application control policies for unlisted applications.
  4. Click the up and down arrows to set the priority of application control policies for unlisted applications.
