OEMConfig is typically used to configure settings that are not built in to Workspace ONE UEM. Different original equipment manufacturers (OEM) include different settings. The available settings depend on what the OEM includes in their OEMConfig application.

Complete the following steps to configure the OEM settings for an OEMconfig application in the Workspace ONE UEM console.

Prerequisites

Before you start configuring OEMConfig on your devices, consider the following caveats:

  • OEM settings is a data-driven user interface that uses text boxes and support lookup values for the user or device-specific configurations.
  • If any of the OEM settings is left blank, or is not selected, Workspace ONE UEM does not send the key-value pair to the device, and it is excluded from the configuration.
  • Clear button clears all the values from the current configuration, including the default values.
  • Use the Clear button to set a subset of configurations.
  • Use the Clear button on each of the configuration page to clear the configuration settings.
  • An OEMConfig app is built by the OEM, and uploaded to Google Play. If it is not on Google Play, contact the OEM for more information.
  • You are on Workspace ONE UEM console 1907 or later.
