The data loss prevention (DLP) function to prevent copy and paste actions requires a setting in the AirWatch Console and added values to the AWSDKDefaultSettings.plist. After you set the console and add the PLIST values, the SDK handles all logic for DLP.

Configure the AirWatch Console

  1. Set the Enable Copy and Paste function to No in the console.
  2. Add a new boolean entry entitled AWClipboardEnabled and set it to Yes to enable prevention of copy and paste.

For information on setting DLP, see the VMware AirWatch Online Help topic Configure Data Loss Prevention for the Default SDK Profile.

Add Values to AWSDKDefaultSettings.plist

Inside your AWSDKDefaultSettings.plist add a new boolean entry entitled AWClipboardEnabled and set it to YES to enable prevention of copy and paste.

See Entries to Set in the AWSDKDefaultSettings.plist for information on creating the AWSDKDefaultSettings.plist.
