Improved mobile device management rules experience in the Admin console
Quick launch summary
We’re making improvements to how you manage rules related to mobile device management (MDM) in the Admin console. There are two key aspects of the launch:
- A new location for MDM rules: You can now manage rules at Devices > Security rules. Previously, MDM rules were managed at Admin console > Rules.
- New rule options and creation workflow: You’ll see a new flow to create MDM rules, including new conditions which can trigger rules, and new device management and notification actions to take as a result.
Use our Help Center to learn more about managing MDM rules for your organization. Note that any previously created rules will continue to function as before. However, you’ll be able to use the new flow and options if you update the rules.
- Admins: The new interface and rule creation workflow will be ON by default. Visit the Help Center to learn more about managing MDM rules for your organization.
- End users: No end user impact.
Device management rules are now in the Security rules section of the Admin console
