Using the Restricted Actions settings page, you can configure the security-minded settings related to the actions that Workspace ONE UEM administrators can perform in the Workspace ONE UEM console.
What can you do with the Restricted Actions settings page?
The path to the settings page on the UEM console is.
- Activate the setting that allows admins to message every device in the environment or a specific group of devices.
- Enforce a PIN requirement for specific action. It means the admin must enter a security PIN before performing the actions.
- Enforce requirement for a note that the admin must enter explaining the reason before performing the action.
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. For more information about these settings, see Override Versus Inherit Setting for Organization Groups.
- 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.
Send Message to All
- Enabled – Activate 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 requirement provides you with granular control over which actions you want to make more secure.
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 must log into the Workspace ONE UEM console and set a new security PIN.
