Placeholders in policies

In policy settings, you can use placeholders which are replaced by a user, device, or customer property when the policy is assigned.

  • %_EMAILADDRESS_% is replaced by the Email Address property of the user assigned to the device.

  • %_USERNAME_% is replaced by the Exchange Login property of the user assigned to the device.

  • %_DEVPROP()_% is replaced by a device property.

    For example, %_DEVPROP(IMEI)_% is replaced by the device’s IMEI value (if available).

    You can use any of the properties listed on the Device properties and Custom properties tabs of the device’s Show device page.

For macOS, user properties are replaced as follows:
  • For the local Mac user, the properties from the Sophos Mobile user assigned to the device are used.
  • For network users, the properties from the LDAP user account are used.
