As a Workspace ONE UEM admin, you can configure Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Windows Rugged to require a password on a Windows Rugged device startup.

What can you do with the Windows Rugged Power On Password page?

The path to the settings page in the Workspace ONE UEM console is Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Windows > Windows Rugged > Power On Password.

With the Power On Password page, you can:
  • Force a password expiration on a Windows Rugged device.
  • Allow the user to see the password that they enter.

Determine your Organization Group hierarchy

Before you review and modify the settings, understand the two types of inheritance/override options for the organization group hierarchy available at the top and bottom of the settings page and determine your choice.
  • 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.
  • Child Permission – Select the available behavior of child organization groups that exist below the currently selected organization group. Inherit only means child OGs are only allowed to inherit these settings. Override only means they override the settings, and Inherit or Override means you can choose to inherit or override settings in child OGs that exist below the currently selected OG.
