How to Create Mobile Device Configuration Items for Compliance Settings in Configuration Manager

Updated: January 1, 2013

Applies To: System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager

Use the following procedure to configure configuration items in System Center 2012 Configuration Manager to manage the settings on mobile devices that you enroll by using Configuration Manager or Windows Intune.

The most typical mobile device settings to configure are email management, password, and roaming settings. However, there are many more settings that you can configure and define by using these three levels:

  • The default settings group, from where you select typical settings to configure and select values in drop-down lists.

  • Additional settings when the setting that you want to configure is not included in the default settings groups. To configure additional settings, select the Configure additional settings that are not in the default setting groups check box on the Mobile Device Settings page.

  • Custom settings that you define yourself by using the OMA URI values. These settings are an equivalent to registry settings for computers. Consult your vendor documentation to help you define these settings and values. To create the custom settings, click Create Setting in the Browse Settings dialog box.

noteNote
Not all settings might be supported on all mobile operating systems and on all versions. Configuration Manager displays known compatibility issues for the settings that you configure in the default groups and the additional settings. However, consult your vendor documentation and test the settings and values before you deploy the settings in a production environment.

All mobile device settings can be remediated if they are out of compliance.

WarningWarning
Do not configure configuration items for different values and assign them to the same devices. When devices evaluate configuration items that have conflicting values, the order in which they are evaluated is nondeterministic.

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, click Assets and Compliance.

  2. In the Assets and Compliance workspace, expand Compliance Settings, and then click Configuration Items.

  3. On the Home tab, in the Create group, click Create Configuration Item.

  4. On the General page of the Create Configuration Item Wizard, specify the following information, and then click Next:

    • Name: Enter a unique name for the configuration item. You can use a maximum of 256 characters.

    • Description: Provide a description that gives an overview of the configuration item and other relevant information that helps to identify it in the Configuration Manager console. You can use a maximum of 256 characters.

    • In the Specify type of configuration item that you want to create list, select Mobile device.

    • Click Categories to assign optional categories to the configuration item to make it easier to search for and filter in the Configuration Manager console. For more information, see How to Manage Configuration Items for Compliance Settings in Configuration Manager.

  5. On the Mobile Device Settings page, select the settings group to configure. If the setting that you want is not listed, select the Configure additional settings that are not in the default setting groups check box, and then click Next.

  6. Configure the settings, and specify whether to remediate them if they are out of compliance.
