VPN User Name IT policy rule


This rule specifies the default user name that a BlackBerry® device uses to log in to your organization's VPN server.

Default value

The default value is a null value.


Specify a value for this rule if you want to configure a default user name for all user accounts.

If a user types a user name on a BlackBerry device manually, IT policy updates overwrite or delete the value that the user typed. To retain the value on the BlackBerry device, verify that the updated rule uses the same value as this rule.


You must change the Enable VPN IT policy rule to Yes so that a BlackBerry device can use this rule.

Minimum requirements

  • Java® based BlackBerry device
  • BlackBerry® Device Software version 4.0
  • BlackBerry® Enterprise Server version 4.0 SP1
