With Z-Push 2.3 we introduce the possibility to setup global mobile policies on a server wide level.

The ticket to track progress of this feature is  ZP-77 - Getting issue details... STATUS .

Work in progress

This page is a documentation stub. Supported policies and their impact on different mobile phones will be documented here.

0 - Password not required.
1 - Password is required.

Blackberry Z 10 (

Specifies if a device requires a password to unlock it.

If a password is required, the user has to enter a password after the policies (Provisioning command) has been deployed to the mobile device. Password complexity depends on alphanumpwreq, mindevpwlenngth and allowsimpledevpw (see below for the description of theser policies). The time of inactivity until device requests to enter the password is set in maxinacttimedevlock (see below).


0 - Alphanumeric password not required.
1 - Alphanumeric password required.

Blackberry Z 10 ( if a device requires an alphanumeric password to unlock it.


0 - Password recovery not enabled on the server.
