Maximum Number of PC Transactions IT policy rule


This rule specifies the maximum number of smart card-related transactions that can occur between a computer and a BlackBerry® Smart Card Reader before the secure pairing information is deleted from the computer and the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader. The permitted range is 100 through 10,000 transactions.

A transaction is any set of request and response packets other than the connection heartbeat packet.

Default value

The default value is a null value.


If you configure this rule, the user cannot stop the secure pairing information from being deleted, but can change the Number of Transactions field in the BlackBerry Smart Card Reader options on a computer to a lower value.

If you do not configure this rule, the user can change the Number of Transactions field to any value.

Minimum requirements

  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP5
  • BlackBerry Smart Card Reader software version 1.5


The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server for Novell® GroupWise® does not support this rule.
