Apply policy changes to devices

When you change the settings of certain policies, you must update them on the devices for the changes to take effect.

You only need to apply changes to devices for the following policies:

  • Android device policies
  • Knox container policies
  • iOS device policies

Other policies synchronize automatically each time the device connects to Sophos Mobile.

To apply policy changes to devices:

  1. On the menu sidebar, under CONFIGURE, select Policies and then select a device platform.
  2. Select the blue triangle next to a policy and select Update devices.
Sophos Mobile creates a task to update the policy on all devices to which it’s assigned.
