Default Default WiFi Policy

Please Login to Remove!

We're running a BES 5.0 server and I just set up a WiFi policy and assigned it to all our users. I'd like that policy to be assigned to any new user by default when creating that user - like the Default IT Policy. Is this possible?



Thanks,

Scott

As far as I remember, that's not possible in the current version of BES.

From the BES Admin guide:

"You can assign IT policies directly to a user account, groups, or the BlackBerry® Domain. By default, if you do not assign an IT policy to a user account or a group that the user is a member of, the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server applies the IT policy that you assigned to the BlackBerry Domain to the user account."

Assigning IT policies and resolving IT policy conflicts - Administration Guide - BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Exchange - 5.0.2

So if you assign the policy to the domain, it will be used for any newly created user. I haven't tested this, but maybe worth a try.

Yeah, works fine for IT Policy... however this thread is regarding WiFi profile. Very different.

I am confused now, are you talking about the Wi-Fi policy within the IT policy or are you talking about Wi-Fi Profiles (used to be WLAN Profiles).

I'm assuming the user is referring to WiFi profiles, outside of the IT policy.

OK, my fault. Penguin is right.
