VISO – device settings repository

Overview

The “settings” repository is a toolbox of many device-level settings that can be set on Android devices. The settings are not forced, which  means that if you set a background to a device or set a new WiFi SSID, the local user has the rights to change these settings unless combined with setting that will prevent the user from doing such. It is recommended to consider combining “Settings” and “Policy” together if you wish to create a locked-down environment.

To apply the setting bundles see Apply commands and operations on devices

Every single settings item can be set separately by turning “on” or “off” the slider buttons. There are two types of slider buttons, a two-way and a three-way buttons:

Three way slide button

three-way-nuetral The “neutral” mode means that this settings item is ignored in this bundle
three-way-on The “on” mode means that this settings option will be turned on in this bundle
three-way-off The “off” mode means that this settings option will be turned off in this bundle

Two way slide button

two-way-off The “off” mode means that this settings item is ignored in this bundle
two-way-on The “on” mode means that this settings option will be turned on in this bundle and you can set values to it
