If you're interested in Microsoft Intune SDK MDM support, you can sign up for the Mobile Application Management program.

Overview

Managed configurations, previously known as application restrictions, allow an organization's IT administrator to remotely specify settings for the Webex Meetings mobile app.

Webex Meetings defines the managed configuration options that can be remotely set by an IT administrator. These are arbitrary settings that can be changed by a managed configuration provider. If your app is running in a work profile, your IT administrator can also change your app's managed configuration.

A managed configurations provider is another app controlled by the IT administrator which is running on the same device. The IT administrator communicates configuration changes to the managed configuration provider app, which then makes changes to Webex Meetings.

Prerequisites

Configuration Policies for Webex Meetings

IT administrators can add configuration policies to devices that are enrolled in an EMM solution.

Sign in to the EMM console and approve Webex Meetings from Managed Google Play. IT administrators can then add app configuration policies for the Webex Meetings mobile app. After a user installs Webex Meetings, their device automatically configures the app.

Even if some features are enabled by an IT administrator, the feature may still be disabled on a site level by the site administrator.

Sign In to the Webex Meetings Mobile App with an MDM Service


The Webex Meetings mobile app behaves normally if no MDM Service is set up, or if SiteURL and EnableForceLogin aren't configured.

SiteURL is Configured

After entering an email and tapping Next, the configured SiteURL is automatically listed for users.

SiteURL and EnableForceLogin are Configured

After entering an email and tapping Next, the configured SiteURL must be used to sign in to the app. If the user isn't signed in but attempts to connect to a meeting, the app prompts them to sign in.

If your site has single sign-on (SSO), users are automatically taken to their SSO page when they sign in to the mobile app. They don't have to enter their email address first.

Known Issues

Policies controlled by EMM through a Device Policy Controller (DPC) installed on the mobile device may affect Webex app behavior for the following features. IT administrators can use MDM to enable or disable them:

  • Share screen: a black screen may appear to others in the meeting when screen capture is disabled.

  • Start self-video: you can't start camera video when the camera is disabled.

  • Bluetooth device: you can't use Bluetooth devices when Bluetooth connections are disabled.

  • Launch Webex App from browser: you can't launch the Webex app from the browser if the browser app is restricted to send WBX protocol to the Webex app.
