iDoceo Managed App (Payload) with MDM (Relution)

Good morning everyone,

I am pretty new to administrating the MDM for our school. Since the data protection laws are pretty stict in the EU, I cannot allow my colleagues and students to connect to any other Cloud Services but our school cloud using WebDAV.

What I'd like to to do is to hide the other cloud options from the menu, so they are not selectable at all, maybe even preconfigure the right server for WebDAV.

For apps like Notability and Firefox it is possible to manage the app like this (example from Notability):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" " www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd ">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>Giphy Allowed</key>
<false/>
<key>iCloud Allowed</key>
<false/>
<key>Link Sharing Allowed</key>
<false/>
<key>Locked Subjects Allowed</key>
<true/>
<key>Photo Library Allowed</key>
<true/>
<key>Web Clip Allowed</key>
<false/>
<key>Allowed Cloud Services</key>
<array>
<string>WebDAV</string>
<string>OpenIn</string>
</array>
</dict>
</plist>

You can see that I only allow Notability Documents to be shared through WebDAV and "OpenIn", which is Airdrop etc. Is there something like this possible for iDoceo? If not, would it be possible to include this? I do trust my colleagues, but I know some of them don't read the contracts they signed. :)

Thanks so much! :)

Morning Tokoloshe,
That is not available yet but I like the approach.
I'd need to do some tests though. It would be great if you could join the Beta tests
Drop me a line at support @ idoceo.net when you have a chance and let me know the steps you follow to work with that plist file.

Regards

Thanks a lot, I wrote you an e-mail with some more details. I'd like to join the Beta tests, but I have to figure out how. I can't do it with my work tablet, because then I'd have to update all my colleague's versions as well because of the VPP. :D

You will find the details explained here. If you have a chance, give it a try and let me know how that works for you.
There is no way to simulate this behaviour on our side.

Looks good, will implement it in the following days. In the FAQ you might want to also mention the bundle identifier for iDoceo (net.idoceo.iDoceo).

And is Synchronisation = Backup?

This will remove the synchronization (backup?) options completely = This will remove all/some backup (synchronisation?) options

Okay, I did implement the rule, but it does not change anything in the App. I restarted the App/Tablet, but it does not help.

Maybe you can find the mistake in my implementation? :D

Synchronization and backup are two different things.
Synchronization handles all changes and updates each device automatically via Apple/CloudKit without any user intervention.
Backups are just a secure storage of all the data in a particular device for safety. In case the device is stolen, broken, you could restore a backup to have all your data back
From Settings( gear icon) > About > 4 quick taps on iDoceo's icon > MDM Settings and check what it says there.

Okay, thanks. Then I will turn synch off, too.

There is no MDM Settings, so I guess my version hasn‘t updated yet. Explains a lot. :D It‘s still 7.2.1.

Will get back to you once it updates.
