You can restrict or allow the import of content from third-party applications into the Workspace ONE Content by using certain configuration keys in UEM console. These configuration keys allow the content import from only the approved list of native applications.

Use the following configuration keys to restrict or allow content import from third-party applications into Workspace ONE Content.

Configuration Key Value Type Supported Values Description
{"ContentImportRestriction"} Boolean true = restriction enabled false = restirction disabled For example, {"ContentImportRestriction": true} When enabled, device users cannot import content from any third-party applications that are not in the allowlist including the native iOS applications into the Workspace ONE Content.
{"ContentImportAllowNativeApps"} Boolean true = import from native applications are allowed false = import from native applications are not allowed For example, {"ContentImportAllowNativeApps": true} When enabled, the device users can import content from native applications when the import restriction is enabled.

The ContentImportRestriction and ContentImportAllowNativeApps configuration values can be used in combination to configure the import restriction as per your requirement. If you want to allow import of content from all native apps, enable the ContentImportAllowNativeApps key. The ContentImportAllowNativeApps key is enabled by default and allows import from all native apps such as iOS native Email, Files, Safari, AirDrop, and such. When enabled, the device users can open and import content from apps that are not in the allowlist into Workspace ONE Content using the web versions of the non-whitelisted applications (using Safari).

If you want to allow only specific applications, disable the ContentImportAllowNativeApps key and add the allowed applications in the allowlist.

If you want to restrict importing of content from specific native apps, disable the ContentImportAllowNativeApps key and add the allowed native applications in the allowlist.

Note: The Limit Documents to Open Only in Approved Apps option must be enabled in the Data Loss Prevention settings before enabling the configuration key values. Safari and AirDrop cannot be inluded in the allowlist as there is no associated bundle ID.
