As a FileWave Admin, I want to create and assign policies to windows 10 devices so that I should be able to assign network, security, device hardware and software settingsWindows Configuration policies allow you to define attributes on your Windows endpoints, such as "Bluetooth is not allowed".  These configuration policies are similar to what you may have done in the past through Group Policy objects.


Third-party MDM servers like FileWave 14.5+ can manage Windows 10 by using the MDM protocol. The built-in management client is able to communicate with a third-party server proxy that supports the protocols to perform enterprise management tasks. The third-party server will have the same consistent first-party user experience for enrollment, which also provides simplicity for Windows 10 users. Policies will allow you to control settings on your Windows MDM managed devices. We'll use configuration policies whenever we want to configure Windows 10 endpoints for items that ease setup, or restrict device usage.  Policies will always be a work in progress as more and more are added to the platform over time.  In this iteration we start with the critical core policy settings.


How can a FileWave administrator create the Windows policies?


You have now deployed a profile to manage settings!


Note that at this time there is no method for seeing command history in the FileWave admin with regard to policy installation, but this feature will be coming in a later update.
