Article summary

The controls are set on the apps which can be accessed from the Google Play store. Any application running on the device requires runtime permissions and this can be incorporated through permission settings. The permission policy is silently set for work apps when permission is requested.

There are two types of permission settings: Global level and Application level. An admin can control granting permissions on all the devices. All the applications can be tracked and get status of those adopted and installed applications. For the Work Managed devices, you can manage the Grant state for these permissions at a Global Level or App level.

  1. In Scalefusion Dashboard click Application Management > Play for Work Apps.
  2. Click SEARCH & ADD in PLAY FOR WORK APPS tab.
