The Restricted Actions settings page lets you configure security-minded settings related to the actions that administrators can perform in the AirWatch Console.
- Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.
Send Message to All
- Enabled – Enable this setting to allow a System Administrator to send a message to all devices in your deployment from the Device List View.
Password Protect Admins
You can require that certain actions require admins to enter a PIN. For each action you choose to protect, select the appropriate Password Protect Actions button for Enabled or Disabled as appropriate. This provides you with granular control over which actions you want to make more secure.
Some actions always require a PIN and thus cannot be disabled. Denoted by * below.
You can set the maximum number of failed attempts the system accepts before automatically logging out the session. If you reach the set number of attempts, you need to re-login into the AirWatch Console and set a new security PIN.
