Finder and Dock profile configuration is required in order to lock the file system and manage system commands. Configure these profiles in the AirWatch Console.

  • Configure the Dock profile.
    • Allow specific applications and items to show on the Dock. By default, user adjustments are disabled, but you can enable these adjustments as needed. Do not select any check boxes that would allow the user to make changes to the settings. Also, do not allow these settings to merge with the user dock. If you choose to override the Dock, it will not be reverted to its original state when the profile is removed or upon an enterprise wipe.
  • Configure the Finder profile.
    • Restrict access to the file system and commands using the Simple Finder and then choose commands to limit on the computer such as Shut Down. De-select the commands to make them unavailable to the user.
