Force Load Count IT policy rule


This rule specifies the number of times that users can decline to update the BlackBerry® Device Software before they must update it. The permitted range is -1 through 1000 times.

Default value

The default value is a null value.


To turn off mandatory updates of the BlackBerry Device Software, configure this rule to -1.

To turn on the forced update feature, configure this rule to 0 or to a greater value. If you turn on the feature, when a user logs in and connects a BlackBerry device to a computer, the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager or BlackBerry® Web Desktop Manager version 1.0 or version 1.0.1 checks whether newer versions of the software are available automatically, and prompts the user to update the BlackBerry device.

Minimum requirements

  • BlackBerry® Application Suite version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Desktop Software version 3.5 or BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager version 1.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for IBM® Lotus® Domino® and BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Microsoft® Exchange version 3.5


The BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Novell GroupWise supports this rule with the BlackBerry Web Desktop Manager only.
