Creating and managing shared device groups

If you want to allow multiple users to share an
device, you can create a shared device group. You can configure settings for the group that are specific to each user or the same for all users. When you create a shared device group,
BlackBerry UEM
creates a local user account that owns the shared device group.
To check out a device, users can use either local or
Microsoft Active Directory
authentication. You can customize the terms of use that users must accept when they check out a shared device. When they check in the device, it is available for the next user. Shared devices are managed by
during the check-out and check-in process.
This feature was designed for supervised devices with the following configuration:
  • App lock mode enabled
  • VPP apps assigned
This feature does not support
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps. The same
BlackBerry Dynamics
profile must be assigned to the user account that owns the shared device group and to the shared device group itself. You must verify that the "Enable
UEM Client
to enroll in
BlackBerry Dynamics
" option is not selected in the profile.
