Deploy a Restrictions payload to restrict the options end users have on devices. Restrictions allow you to ensure that your device is secure by controlling what an end user can use to save and store data.


You can use a Restriction payload only on Windows Rugged devices and not on Windows CE devices.

To enforce a Restrictions profile:

  1. Navigate to Devices > Profiles > List View > Add and select Add Profile.
  2. Select Windows Rugged.
  3. Configure the profile's General settings.

    These settings determine how the profile deploys and who receives it. For more information on General settings, see Add General Profile Settings.

  4. Select the Restrictions profile.
  5. Configure the Restriction settings:
    Settings Descriptions
    Allow Camera Enable to allow access to the camera application.
    Allow External Storage Enable to allow use of external storage memory.
    Remove Encryption on External Storage Enable to allow the removal of encryption on external storage.
    Enable On-Device Encryption Enable to allow encryption on the device.
    Allow Bluetooth Enable to allow the use of Bluetooth.
  1. Select Save & Publish when you are finished to push the profile to devices.
