Import IT policy and device metadata updates manually

BlackBerry
regularly sends IT policy and device metadata updates to
BlackBerry UEM
. For example, when a vendor releases a new device model,
BlackBerry
may send updated device metadata to
UEM
so that activation and compliance profiles include the new device model. When a vendor releases an OS update, a new IT policy pack may be sent to
UEM
to allow you to manage new OS features.
By default,
UEM
receives and installs these updates automatically. If your organization's security policy does not allow automatic updates, and you have an on-premises
UEM
environment, you can turn off the automatic updates and import updates manually. Update files are cumulative. If you miss an update, the next update installs all previously updated IT policy rules or device metadata. You can set up event notifications to inform administrators when IT policy and device metadata updates are installed.
Download the metadata or IT policy pack according to the instructions in the update notification email from
BlackBerry
.
