Profiles and Policies: Profiles
The Profiles page allows administrators to create, edit, and remove all of the corporate profiles
that are sent over-the-air to their smart device fleet. These profiles allow devices to automatically
receive corporate data such as:
 Wi-Fi connections.
 Passcode and restrictions policies.
 Corporate email and calendars.
 The Vodafone App Catalogue.
 Other custom data.
Profiles and Policies: Compliance
The Compliance page is where administrators can designate security policies for their device
fleet so that specific actions take place when devices fail to meet compliance rules. There are
many types of compliance rules that can be selected, but the rules can be divided into three
categories:
 Application Rules.
 Device Rules.
 Email Rules.

Setting Up Your VSDM
2.1
Overview
There are a few administrative actions to perform before the end-users can enrol their devices
under VSDM. The Administrator must first establish the organisational hierarchy for the device
fleet by creating three things:
 Location Groups to define the different areas of your corporate hierarchy that manages
and utilises VSDM.
 Admin Accounts to provide VSDM access to all of the administrators of the smart device
fleet.
 User Accounts to associate corporate users with their managed devices.
A collection of useful links for setting up your VSDM can be found on the VSDM by navigating to
Configuration > System Settings > Installation > Getting Started. From here, you will find
links to the following sections within the VSDM:
 Device Enrolment/Authentication Settings.
 SMS/Email Message Settings.
 Location Groups Setup.
 User Accounts Settings.
 Enrolment Messaging Settings.
 Terms of Use Settings.
 VSDM Branding Settings.
 APNs Certificate Settings.
 Device Scheduler Information.
2.2
Introducing the Getting Started Wizard
The Getting Started Wizard displays a customised welcome page the first time you log in to the
VSDM. This walks you through the entire mobile device lifecycle process from deployment to
security, monitoring, management, and support. At the end of the process you are able to install
and manage your smart device fleet.
2.2.1
Prerequisites
In most cases, there are no prerequisites required to use the Getting Started Wizard, by default
this is enabled for all SaaS customers. However, if you are On-Premise and you want the
Welcome page to display the first time you log in, then you need to enable the wizard from the
System Settings page.

You can configure settings for device enrolment, device restrictions, and privacy. In addition, you
can add name to a device to recognise it easily, including language settings, custom field
definitions for the look up fields and device groups in the Advanced pages.
Enterprise Integration
The VSDM securely integrates with AD/LDAP, Certificate Authorities, Email infrastructures, and
other enterprise systems. This is automatically configured during the EIS installation behind your
firewall. You can still modify anything on this page such as certificates for access to corporate
Email, Wi-Fi, VPN networks, and more when the configuration has been initialised by EIS after
installation.
App Management
You can view, manage, push, recommend the public applications, and deploy internal or
purchased applications to your device over-the-air.
Content Management
You can configure the content so that it can be accessed in online or offline modes based on the
device ownership, location groups. Enable EIS integration to provide users with direct links to
folders, network drives, or even SharePoint directories containing various documents to upload
into the Secure Content Locker. Currently, Content Management is an additional product.
Availability may vary, depending on your local market.
Email Management
You can restrict corporate Email access for both managed and unmanaged devices. You can also
troubleshoot Email server requests through the Secure Email Gateway Dashboard.

The initial configuration is now complete. Once you have finished setting up, click Menu and
begin using the VSDM.
2.3
Enabling iOS MDM Support
The Apple Push Notification service (APNs) is used to allow Vodafone or any other MDM
vendor to securely communicate to your devices over-the-air (OTA). Each organisation needs
their own APNs certificate to ensure a secure mechanism for their devices to communicate
across Apple’s push notification network. Vodafone uses your APNs certificate to send
notifications to your devices when the Administrator requests information or during a defined
monitoring schedule.
Run this wizard by navigating to System Settings > Device > iOS > APNs for MDM. For
additional help, see the Generating an APNs Certificate for MDM in v6.1 SP1 and Greater
document.

Location Groups and User Groups
Overview
VSDM offers organisations several options to manage and organise their users:
 Location Groups – With Location Groups, users can be organised into hierarchical units
that may represent physical location divisions and/or organisational structures.
 User Groups – User Groups are tied directly to an organisation's existing Active Directory
structure. You can assign resources and manage the permissions of users based on their
assigned Directory User Groups.
When used conjunctionally, Location Groups and User Groups can allow administrators to fully
optimise and leverage their VSDM.
Note: User Groups can only be used if your organisation is currently using LDAP/Active Directory.
3.1.1
Location Groups
Within large enterprises, IT departments have to meet the requirements of different users across
functional, organisational, or geographical groups. One of VSDM's solutions to this requirement
for multi-tenancy is Location Groups.
You can create rich location group structures that align with the corporate hierarchical structure
to provide customised and scalable MDM solutions for corporate users.
Note: If your organisation is currently using Active Directory to manage its employees on the
network, you should look to leverage User Groups integration (See "User Groups") in conjunction
with Location Groups. This maximises the control over your VSDM setup (See "VSDM Best
Practice").
With an evolving corporate structure comes the need to create additional location groups and
locations. The steps below outline the process of creating a location group and associated
location.
3.1.2
Create a New Location Group
Complete the following steps to create a location group:
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 23 of 249
1. Navigate to Configuration > Locations & Groups.
2. Select a Parent Location Group from the list.
o The parent location group is the location group that is one hierarchical level up from
the one that is being added. Once complete, the new group is listed a level below the
parent group.
3. Select Add Child Location Group to open the new location group form. Once complete,
the new group is listed a level below the parent group.
4. Complete the required location group information.
o Location Group Name - The display name for the location group that is shown in the
VSDM.
o Group ID - The activation code used by a device to enrol into this location group. This
dictates what profiles, applications, and policies are inherited to the device based on
what is configured at this location group. The administrator needs to provide end-users
with their group ID in order to complete the enrolment process. Administrators can
leverage See "User Groups" to automatically assign Group IDs and role based on user
group membership.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 24 of 249
 To configure the VSDM to automatically select a user's group ID based on user
group membership (Directory Services integration must be set up), navigate to the
Enrolment page under System Settings and choose Automatically Select under
group assignment mode.
5. Select the Add Default Location box and fill in the required default location information:
o Display Name - The display name of the location is shown in the VSDM.
o Internal Name - The unique name that is internally used to define this location.
6. Click Save. The new location group and location have been created.
3.1.3
Modify and Delete a Location Group
Location Group Details provide the ability to modify and delete the location group information
including the Group ID.
Use the following steps to modify or delete a Location Group:
1. Navigate to Configuration > Locations & Groups.
2. Choose the Location Group you wish to modify or delete.
3. Ensure that you have the Location Group Details tab selected and then modify any of the
fields listed below.
o Location Group Name - The display name for the location group that is shown in the
VSDM.
o Group ID - The activation code used by a device to enrol into this location group. This
dictates what profiles, applications, and policies are inherited to the device based on
what is configured at this location group. The administrator needs to either provide
end-users with their group ID or configure the VSDM to automatically select Group ID
based on user group role in order to complete the enrolment process.
o Location Group Type/Country/Locale - Used for internal classification only.
o Default Location - The default location is where devices are automatically assigned
when enrolled in the location group.
4. Save to save your modifications.
5. Delete to delete the location group.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 25 of 249
Note: To delete a location group, there must not be any child Location Groups below it. If there
are, delete all child groups from the lowest level up, until you are able to delete the original
group.
3.1.4
Additional Location Group Details
The administrator can also set several additional fields to provide additional information to the
location groups. These fields have no effect on the operation of the location groups, but can be
used to provide additional detailed information for logging purposes.
Locations are an organisational unit into which enrolled devices are placed. By default, each
Location Group has at least one Location, known as the Default Location.
Note: Without a default location, devices cannot be enrolled at that specific location group.
Location types provide the ability to classify Locations based on the corporate structure (for
internal use in the VSDM).
Location Statuses provide the ability to classify if a Location is active or is in the future (for
internal use in the VSDM).

3.2
User Groups
User Group integration allows you to further streamline the VSDM management by leveraging
existing LDAP/AD user groups in VSDM.
Once successfully integrated into the VSDM, user groups act as filters (in addition to location
groups) for assigning profiles, applications, and policies. After implementing user group
integration, you can more easily perform tasks in the following areas:
 User Management - You can more closely align users in the VSDM with their pre-existing
LDAP/AD user associations, making it easier for you to streamline user management.
 Profile and Policy Assignment - Assign profiles, applications, content, and compliance
policies to groups of users according to the existing groups and distribution lists.
 Integrated Updates - Instruct the VSDM to automatically update assignments based on
directory user group changes. You also have the ability to request approval if the number of
changes exceeds a specified threshold.
 User Group Management Permissions - Set advanced management permissions to only
allow approved administrators to change VSDM assignments for certain user groups.
 Enrolment - Allow all users to enrol in the VSDM using the same group ID (Location Group)
even though their devices may receive different corporate resources.
3.2.1
Transitioning to User Groups
Both new and existing VSDM customers with an LDAP/AD infrastructure can easily leverage their
LDAP/AD groups in the VSDM.
Prerequisite
Before beginning the user group transition process, Directory Services (See "Lightweight
Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and Active Directory (AD) Integration" and Enterprise
Integration Services' (EIS), when used) must be enabled in the VSDM at the level of the root
location group.
For example, if the root location group is Internal and EIS integration is in place, EIS integration
should be enabled with the Internal location group selected on the left-hand side of the screen,
as shown below.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 27 of 249
Note: It is important to note that the existing assignment is not affected when you import user
groups. In order to facilitate the transition process and ensure that your users do not experience
any disruption to their current configurations, the administrator must manually apply policies to
user groups as needed.
3.2.2
Set Up User Groups in the VSDM
Regardless of whether or not you have existing location groups in the VSDM, it is easy to leverage
both user groups and location groups. To set up user groups, first ensure that the EIS
prerequisites (when EIS is used) are satisfied.
User groups can be set up one group at a time or the administrator can use the User Group bulk
import feature to add multiple user groups at same time.
Use the following steps to set up single user group associations in the VSDM based on AD/LDAP
groups:
1. Navigate to Users > User Accounts > User Groups.
2. Go to the Location Group menu on the left and designate an existing location group as the
primary root location group from which the administrator manages devices and users.
3. Click Add. The Add Directory form displays.
4. Enter the user group key words in the Search Text field and click Search.
5. Select the desired directory groups from the search results. The Add Directory Group
screen displays and you can proceed with mapping your existing LDAP/AD group
assignments with your new user groups.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 28 of 249
6. Tick the Auto Sync and Auto Merge Checkboxes - When you initially import user groups,
they automatically sync and merge with the existing user group assignments. You should
tick these boxes to ensure that your user group assignments are updated on a regular basis.
o Auto Sync - The Auto Sync feature collects changes in LDAP group membership
(without taking any action on those changes).
o Auto Merge - The Auto Merge feature saves any of the changes detected from the
Auto Sync process and merges them into user groups.
7. Enter a number in the Maximum Allowable Changes box when you add a directory group
to establish the maximum allowable number of group membership changes to be merged
into VSDM. You can edit this number in the User Group Settings.
3.2.3
Edit User Group Settings and Management Permissions
An additional benefit of user group integration in VSDM is increased management flexibility
enabled by user group settings for automatic updates and editing permissions.
Edit User Group Settings
User group settings can be configured to automatically detect each time a user leaves or joins a
group. The administrator can set a maximum allowable number of automatic changes, and any
changes that exceed this threshold require administrator approval.
Use the following steps to edit User Group Settings:
1. Navigate to Accounts > Users > User Groups.
2. Ensure that the root location group for your device fleet has been selected if
management permissions are required.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 29 of 249
3. Select the Actions menu next to the user group and click Edit. The General tab displays by
default.
4. Define the following:
o Type - By default, Directory is selected.
o Group Name - The User Group name.
o Distinguished Name - The distinguished name of the User Group.
o Relative Distinguished Name - The relative distinguished name of the User Group.
o Managed By - The Location Group under which the User Group is added.
o Auto Sync With Directory - Auto syncs the users in the group as per addition or
deletion of users on the LDAP/AD server.
o Auto Merge Changes - Applies the changes to the User Groups without the need for
administrator approval. For example, when a user is moved to a different User Group,
the Auto merge option reflects this change on the VSDM.
o Add Group Members automatically - Allows group members to be extracted from
Active Directory automatically for the creation of user accounts.
o Group Assignment - Click the link to set the default role, ownership, and action for
users . You can also map User Groups to that of the directory.
3.2.4
User Information Actions and Updates
The VSDM syncs with the LDAP/AD database on a regular basis to retrieve updates to group
membership. The VSDM automatically performs the following actions when changes in user
attributes or user group membership are detected:

Updates user attributes that are changed in LDAP/AD.
 Performs an enterprise wipe on the device when a user is deactivated in LDAP/AD.
 Enforces roles and permissions for administration based on LDAP/AD user group.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 30 of 249
Additionally, the VSDM has the option to automatically assign Group IDs and roles based on user
group membership, and the ability to enforce enrolment restrictions by user group. These
options further streamline the enrolment process.
To configure enrolment restrictions (such as the maximum number devices per user), navigate to:
Configuration > System Settings > Device > General > Enrolment.
3.2.5
Edit User Group Permissions
User groups allow corporations to re-consider who within the organisation has permission to edit
specific groups. For example, if an organisation has a user group for company executives, they
may not want lower level administrators to have management permissions for that user group.
Use the Permissions page to control who can manage specific user groups and who can assign
profiles, compliance policies and applications to user groups.
1. Navigate to Users > User Accounts > User Groups.
o If management permissions are required, ensure the root location group for your
device fleet has been selected.
2. Select the Actions menu next to the user group you wish to edit.
3. Select the Permissions tab and specify the following permissions:
4. Select the Location Group for which you would like to define permissions.
5. Define the following:
o Permissions - Use this option to determine the permissions an administrator can
perform on the User Groups.
 Manage Group (Edit/Delete) - Allows administrators to edit or delete any group.
 Manage Users Within Group and Allow Enrolment - Allows the administrators to
allow enrolment of the users, and edit or delete any user under that group.
 Use Group for Assignment - Allows the administrator to assign profiles, apps,
content, and compliance policies to the User Group.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 31 of 249
o Scope
 Administrator Only - Applies the above mentioned permissions to only the
administrator of this specific Location Group.
 All Administrators at or below the location - Applies the above mentioned
permissions to the administrator of this specific Location Group as well as the child
Location Groups.
3.2.6
Assign Resources to User Groups
User groups, when integrated with VSDM, provide additional criteria for assigning profiles,
compliance policies, applications, and content.
User Groups appear as an assignment field for these VSDM resources. The user group name is
followed by the @ symbol then the name of the Location group at which the user group was
created.
Use the following steps to navigate to the appropriate editing page, and then continue to the
instructions for assigning the VSDM policy to user groups.
1. Navigate to the appropriate page in the VSDM. You can assign existing resources to user
groups by selecting the appropriate policy and selecting the Edit from the Actions menu.
If it is a New assignment, create or upload the profile, policy, content, or application and fill
in the assignment fields to deploy the resource to a user group.
2. Select the appropriate Location Group field, select the appropriate assigned location
group.
3. Select one or more User Groups to receive the resource.
4. Click Save and publish the form.
Policy Assignment Notes
If the administrator assigns something to both a location group and a user group, the system uses
the user group as an additional filter for assigning the profile.
Even if you select a very large location group, the system only applies the policy to the users who
are a member of the user group and have a device that is in the assigned location group.
The administrator may wish to use both location groups and user groups to configure more
advanced settings.
3.3
Migrate Basic Users to Directory Users
Administrators that have enabled AD/LDAP integration and wish to leverage user groups in the
VSDM can easily migrate their existing users from Basic Users to Directory Users.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 32 of 249
Use the following steps to begin the user migration process:
1.
Navigate to Accounts > Users.
2. Go to the System Settings view on the left-hand side of the page, select User Migration.
3. Select the Basic users to migrate.
4. Click Migrate.
3.4
Bulk Import User Groups
To save time and effort when importing your LDAP/AD User Groups into the Vodafone Secure
Device Manager, administrators can upload user groups in bulk through the batch import feature.
Use the following steps to upload user groups in bulk:
1. Navigate to Accounts > Users > User Groups.
2. Click Batch Import to open the Batch Import Form.
3. Enter the basic information:
o Batch Name - The name of the user group batch for reference in the VSDM.
o Batch Description - A description of the particular user group batch for reference.
4. Click
to open up the Bulk Import Help Topic Form.
5. Select Download Template to download the Batch Import Template.
6. Save the template as a CSV file.
7. Enter the required user group information in the template. The template information is the
same as the fields required when setting up an individual user group. For more information
on these user group settings, such as Auto Sync and Auto Merge.
8. Click Browse to upload the CSV file containing your user group information.
If the Batch Import does not complete successfully, view, and troubleshoot errors by selecting
Batch Status (under System Activity on the User Accounts page). Select Actions>View
Errors to view the specific batch import errors.

VSDM Best Practice
4.1
Location Groups
When configuring your VSDM, it is recommended that Location Groups be used to define
hierarchical organisational units and physical location divisions.
Location groups alone in the VSDM control the following capabilities:
 Asset Tracking - Location groups define which business units the devices live at, so be
sure to consider the device groupings you wish to view on the VSDM dashboards. Location
Groups are still the primary filter on all pages for all dashboards and views.
 System Settings - System settings are tied to Location groups. You must define different
location groups if you need different system settings, such as Enterprise Integration Server
settings, EULAs and/or Privacy Policies.
Location Groups can also be used to accomplish the following:
 Setting Permissions - Use Location Groups to set administration management
permissions in the VSDM. Administrators can leverage user groups to automatically assign
user and administrator roles in the VSDM.
 Assigning profiles, policies, content and applications - While it is possible to assign
these resources to User Groups, it is also possible to just assign them to Location Groups.
4.2
User Groups
When configuring your VSDM, it is recommended that User Groups be used to define Security
Groups and/or Business Roles within your organisation.
It is also recommended that User Groups be used to assign Profiles, Compliance Policies,
Content, and Applications to users/devices.
4.3
Transition Options for Best Practices
If you have previously defined Location Groups to represent user Security Groups and are now
considering the use of User Groups, one of the following options may help you streamline your
VSDM:
Reconfigure your system to associate Profiles, Applications and/or Enrolment
Restrictions with User Groups:
 Assign each profile, app, and enrolment restriction to the appropriate User Group(s).
 Change the Location Group assignment to a Location Group one level up.
 Add the User Group assignment.
You may choose to reconfigure your hierarchy to remove old or unused Location Groups
(keep in mind that location groups still serve several purposes in the VSDM):
 Move devices to a Location Group one level up.
 Delete the old Location Group(s).
You can choose to leave your structure as-is:
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 34 of 249
 The Location Group can be considered the 'Primary Security Group' of the device.
 The User Groups are used for assigning profiles and policies.
 The old, unused Location Groups can remain for asset tracking purposes.
4.4
User Management Changes for Directory Users
In addition to the integration of user groups into the VSDM, there are a few changes to user
management for Directory authentication type users. If you currently use Directory Services in
the VSDM, please note the following:
 Directory users can now only be created at the same level as the one where directory
services settings are enabled.
o In order to delete or edit a user account, you must be at the same level as the directory
services settings.
o To add a device to an existing VSDM user account, you must be at a lower level than
the root location group where Directory Services are enabled.
 There is now only one location in the VSDM System Settings for Directory Services (called
Directory Services). The same directory settings are used for both enrolling and logging
into the VSDM.
 Directory Service settings now allow the administrator to configure custom mapping of
user attributes in the VSDM to LDAP user attributes.
4.5
User Storage in the VSDM
The addition of user groups also has an impact on where directory users are stored in the VSDM.
Once you have completed the transition to user groups, the VSDM performs the following
actions:
 Directory users are moved to the level where directory service settings are in the VSDM.
You still see them at the Location Group level where they have a device enrolled, but the
users can only be managed at the same level as the directory service settings.
 After the upgrade to user groups, the VSDM runs a migration process that migrates the
Distinguished Name of existing directory users into the VSDM.

Administrative Accounts
Management of the smart device fleet often requires several administrators to have access to the
VSDM and it may be necessary to add or remove administrative accounts. The VSDM provides an
easy way to create and manage multiple administrative accounts.
5.1
Create an Admin Account Manually
Use the following steps to create an administrative account manually
1. Navigate to Account > Administrators.
2. Select a Location Group in the upper left-hand corner. This is the default location group
for this administrator account. Make sure to select the highest level of access that the
administrator needs. Once logged in, they will have access to all child Location Groups that
are listed below the one selected.
3. Click Add User. The Add/Edit User form displays:
4. Select Basic to manually create the Admin user or select Directory to import the user info
from an Active Directory account.
5. Enter a Username and Password for the admin account.
6. Tick the Require password change at next login checkbox to force the administrator to
change their password after the first time they log in.
7. Complete the additional Basic Information fields:

User Accounts
User accounts are utilised by end-users of the VSDM to associate devices to their respective
corporate users. Vodafone recommends that for each end-user, an associated user account is
created for full scalability. Therefore, as corporate smart device fleets expand, administrators
need to periodically create additional user accounts. Administrators can quickly configure and
manage user accounts directly in the VSDM on the Users page.
6.1.1
User Account Security Types
User accounts can be configured in a number of different ways depending on your business
requirements, deployment model, and enterprise infrastructure. The following section describes
the different configurations and further sections detail how to create user accounts of each type.
Basic authentication
Basic Authentication can be utilised by any VSDM architecture, but offers no integration to
existing corporate user accounts.
 Pros – Can be used for any deployment method, requires no technical integration, requires
no enterprise infrastructure
 Cons – Credentials only exist in VSDM and do not necessarily match existing corporate
credentials. Offers no federated security or single sign-on. Vodafone stores all usernames
and passwords. Administrators do not benefit from the use of User Groups when setting up
their VSDM environment.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 41 of 249
Active Directory / LDAP authentication
Active Directory/LDAP authentication is used to integrate user and admin accounts of the VSDM
with existing corporate accounts. However, because this requires the VSDM server to be in direct
contact with a corporate domain controller, this is typically only recommended for on-premise
architectures.
 Pros - End-users now authenticate with existing corporate credentials. It is a secure
method of integrating with LDAP / AD for On-Premise deployments. Standard integration
practice.
 Cons - Requires an AD or other LDAP server. Only used for On-Premise deployments.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide

Page 42 of 249
Active Directory / LDAP authentication with Vodafone Enterprise Integration
Service
Active Directory/LDAP authentication with Enterprise Integration Service provides the same
functionality as traditional AD/LDAP authentication, but allows this model to function across the
cloud for SaaS deployments. The Enterprise Integration Service also offers a number of other
integration capabilities as shown below.
 Pros –End-users authenticate with existing corporate credentials. Only requires a single
firewall port opened between the EIS server and Vodafone SaaS (port 443). Transmission of
credentials is encrypted and secure. It also offers secure configuration to other
infrastructure such as BES, Microsoft ADCS, SCEP, SMTP servers.
 Cons –Requires the Enterprise Integration Service to be installed behind the firewall or in a
DMZ. Additional configuration is required.
Authentication Proxy
Authentication Proxy is a unique proprietary solution delivering directory services integration
across the cloud or across hardened internal networks. In this model, the VSDM server
communicates with a publicly facing web server or an Exchange ActiveSync Server that is able to
authenticate users against the domain controller. This method can only be used when
organisations have a public-facing web server with hooks into the corporate domain controller.
 Pros – Offers a secure method to integrate with AD/LDAP across the cloud. End-users can
authenticate with existing corporate credentials. Lightweight module that requires minimal
configuration.
 Cons – Requires a public facing web-server or an Exchange ActiveSync server with ties into
an AD/LDAP server. Only feasible for specific architecture layouts. Much less robust
solution than EIS.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 43 of 249
Note: Authentication Proxy is available for on-premise customers only.
SAML 2.0 Authentication
SAML 2.0 Authentication is a new solution that offers single sign-on support and federated
authentication – Vodafone never receives any corporate credentials. If an organisation has a
SAML Identity Provider server, SAML 2.0 integration is recommended.
 Pros – Offers single-sign on capabilities, authentication with existing corporate credentials
and Vodafone never receives corporate credentials in plain-text.
 Cons – Requires corporate SAML Identity Provider infrastructure.
6.1.2
Creating (Single) End Users
Use the following steps to create single End Users:
1. Navigate to Users > Users Accounts.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 44 of 249
2. Select the highest level Location Group under which the user needs to enrol from the
dropdown menu in the upper left-hand corner. They are now able to enrol in all location
groups listed below this group if the user enters the appropriate Group ID (see Location
Groups) during the enrolment process.
3. Click Configuration > Add User.
4. Use the dropdown at the top of the form to select the Security Type. This determines the
type of authentication to be used for this particular user.
o Basic - The default authentication option that uses a basic username and password
combination as determined by this form.
o Directory - Authenticate with corporate LDAP or AD credential by validating against a
corporate domain controller.
o Authentication Proxy - Authenticate with directory based credentials by validating
against a proxy server instead of a corporate domain controller. This is the
recommended solution for directory based authentication across the cloud for SaaS
customers.
o SAML - Authenticate using corporate Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)
credentials.
5. Refer to the appropriate sub-section below to complete the remaining fields for the
security type selected.
Basic
Once Basic has been selected as the Security Type, continue to define the following criteria:

6.2.3
Invites Users to Register
If an administrator wishes to have end-users register their own devices, the administrator must
notify end-users that they need to complete the registration process and provide them with the
appropriate registration URL and credentials (please refer to Creating Basic End Users).
Following are the two ways to notify end-users. In either case, the administrator must let the enduser know two things:
 Where to register - End-users can register by navigating to the Self-Service Portal URL.
This url takes the form of https://<VodafoneEnvironment>/MyDevice where
http://<VodafoneEnvironment> is the enrolment URL.
 How to authenticate into the Self Service Portal - This information includes a Location
Group (Group ID) and the Username and Password that users should use to register their
device.
To notify users:
1. Enable Enrolment authentication for either Active Directory or Authentication Proxy
(edit these settings in Configuration > System Settings > Device > General >
Enrolment> Authentication).
2. Restrict Enrolment To Known Users under Enrolment Restrictions (edit these settings
in Configuration > System Settings > Device > General > Enrolment> Restrictions).
3. Send an Email or intranet notification to the entire user group outside of the VSDM with the
registration instructions. This method is generally used if administrators do not have any
user accounts already created for end-users and they want end users to be able to enrol
and register without assistance. For users to be able to enrol and register their devices
without administrative efforts.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 52 of 249
Alternatively, administrators can first create user accounts for all of the end-users to register their
devices and then send User account activation messages to each user containing the registration
instructions.
6.2.4
End User Registration
Once the administrator sends the registration notification to the user (if the administrator does
not choose to register the devices for the users), end-users need to register the device. Use the
following steps to help guide end-users through the registration process.
1. Navigate to the Self-Service Portal URL (either in the device browser or from any internet
browser).
2. Enter the provided Group ID, Username, and Password.
3. Click Register Device to open the Device Registration Form.

6.5
Important VSDM Setup considerations
 Pay close attention to Location Group hierarchy when creating and editing administrator
accounts. It is important to enable permissions at the highest Location Group needed in
order to ensure the administrator has the proper editing capabilities.
o The selected Location Group is always displayed in the upper left-hand corner of the
VSDM.
 There are three pieces of information the administrator needs to communicate to endusers:
o The VSDM Enrolment URL which is the same URL that you use to access the VSDM.
o Group ID to identify the home Location Group (the Group ID is determined in
Configuration > Locations & Groups > Location Group Details).
o Username and password unique to the end-user (Username and password are
defined in Users > User Accounts > Add User or Edit User).
 Depending on the selected Security Type, the username and password may be
created by the administrator (Basic) or integrated with the Directory,
Authentication Proxy, or SAML.
 If your organisation is using device registration and is in need of assistance, contact
Vodafone Support.

7.9
Retiring a Device
In the event that a device must be removed from mobile device management, there are several
possible methods to un-enrol the device from different sources.
 Automatic Un-enrolment - The VSDMCompliance Engine can be configured so that
devices with Application or Device compliance policies that are non-compliant, are
automatically un-enrolled from mobile device management.
 Administrative Un-enrolment - Administrators can also un-enrol devices over the air in
one of two ways:
o The administrator may manually perform an Enterprise Wipe from the Device
Dashboard page or the Device Details page.
o Alternatively, an administrator may set up the VSDM to automatically perform an
Enterprise Wipe on the devices of deactivated users. The administrator must first
make sure the Default Action For Inactive Users is set to 'Enterprise Wipe Currently
Enrolled Devices'. This can be done from the Enrolment page (Configuration >
System Settings > Device > General > Enrolment). Once this has been configured:
 The administrator can manually deactivate users by navigating to Administration >
User Accounts, checking the user accounts, and then clicking the Deactivate link at
the top. This un-enrols all devices under that user.
 If AD/LDAP has been integrated with the VSDM, any users that are
deactivated/removed from AD/LDAP reautomatically deactivated from the VSDM,
thus causing their device(s) to be automatically un-enrolled.
 End-User Un-enrolment - If an end-user decides to opt out of corporate mobile device
management, then they can initiate the Un-enrolment process from their own device(s).
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 89 of 249
Although the process is different for each manageable platform, the general steps involve
removing the administrative privileges of the VSDM and removing any VSDM agents from
the device.

An increasing number of corporations are implementing BYOD programs. It is easy to configure
the VSDM settings to take into account the device ownership type when deploying profiles,
restrictions, compliance policies, and other important settings. The following configurations are
recommended for BYOD deployments.
7.10.1
Assign Profiles and Policies by Ownership Type
Use the Ownership field when specifying the assignment criteria for applications, profiles,
content, and compliance policies to ensure that employee-owned devices receive less
restrictions than corporate-dedicated devices.
7.10.2
Configure Privacy Settings
Configure the VSDM Privacy settings (System Settings > Device > General > Privacy) to protect
the personal data of your employees:
 Configure the VSDM to Not Collect User Information and Telecom Data for personal
devices.
 Disable the ability to issue a full device wipe on personal devices:

7.10.3
Isolate Corporate Content
Use the Vodafone Secure Content Locker (SCL) to isolate and protect corporate content on
personal devices. The following settings enforce maximum restrictions for content:
 Allow Online viewing only.
 Force encryption.
 Disable Open in Email.
 Disable Open in Third Party Application.
Note: This feature is an additional product. Access may vary subject to local market availability.
7.11
Important Device Management Considerations
 Before performing remote actions on a device, take into account the device ownership
type. Refer to BYOD Configuration Best Practices.htm
 The administrator may want to use privacy settings (specified in Configuration > System
Settings > Device >General > Privacy) and role permissions (specified in Accounts >
Administrators > Roles) to restrict lower-tier administrator access to employee-owned
device data.

Profile Management
8.1
Overview
Create and deploy configuration profiles that define enterprise settings, policies and restrictions
for devices without requiring user interaction. The VSDM delivers signed, encrypted and locked
configuration profiles over-the-air to ensure they are not altered, shared or removed. A single
deployed profile contains customisable settings called Payloads.
8.2
Profiles Page
The Device Profiles page in the VSDM is the mechanism for managing and pushing profiles to
end-user devices over-the-air.
 Search Bar - Search for a profile based on specific profile attributes.
 Active - See if a profile is available to new devices. Green represents an active and available
profile that is available to new devices. Red represents an inactive and unavailable profile.
 Managed - Managed profiles are associated directly with the VSDM, therefore, managed
profiles are removed from un-enrolled or retired devices. Unmanaged profiles remain on
devices, regardless of the VSDM enrolment status.
 Ownership - Shows device assignment of profiles, specifically to corporate-owned or
employee-owned devices.
 Managed By - The location group that has access to edit, publish or delete a profile.
 Actions - Manage the profile using the following options on the Action menu:
o Edit - Customise an existing profile.
o Copy - Copy an existing profile with a new profile name.
o View Devices - View devices that are available for that profile and if the profile is
currently installed.
o Publish - Push out to devices any profiles matching the profile criteria.
o View XML - View the XML code sent over the air to devices describing the application
or profile.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide

Page 92 of 249
o Edit Assignment - Change the Location Groups a profile is assigned to without republishing the profile to every assigned user.
Note: In order to change a User Group assignment, select the Edit option.
o Delete - Deletes a profile and removes it from devices.
8.2.1
Toggling Profile Views for Assignment Testing
There are three grid filters at the top right of the profiles page that can be turned on and off as
desired. Click to enable or disable the following filters and options for viewing and testing profile
assignments:
Toggle Filter
Hide or display the grid display filtering options according to various profile criteria:
Toggle Assignment Criteria
Click the Toggle Assignment Criteria grid filter to create 'what if' scenarios for profile
assignments before publishing new profiles or editing profile assignments. Using this filtering
tool, the administrator can see how profile assignments affects devices without requiring the
administrator to enrol test devices.
 Use Device or Any to perform Assignment testing.
 Device - Choose this button to test the assignment for a specific device and display all
profiles assigned to that device. Then, enter the device friendly name. For example, an
administrator might wish to view whether or not a more restrictive profile would be
assigned to a specific executive.
 Any - Choose this button to test the general profile assignment and display all profiles that
would be assigned to devices that match the specified attributes. Fill in the attributes to see
the device matches by Location Group, Platform, OS, Model, Ownership Type and User
Group. For example, an administrator could enter 'Apple iPad, Corporate-Owned' to see
whether or not corporate iPads have all the necessary profiles.
Export All
Click this grid tool to export all profile data as a CSV file for printing or further analysis.

Creating Profiles
Create and deploy configuration profiles that define enterprise settings, policies and restrictions
for devices without requiring user interaction. A single deployed profile contains customisable
settings, apps, features and restrictions called Payloads.
Use the following steps to deploy profiles to devices using the Device Profiles page in the VSDM:
1. Navigate to: Profiles & Policies > Profiles to open the Device Profiles page.
2. Select Add to create a new profile or click the Actions menu icon to Edit or Copy an
existing profile.
3. Choose the Platform that is associated with the profile.

Complete the General Settings for the profile. General Settings are the overall settings that
determine the specifics of the profile deployment:
 Name - Create a profile name that is displayed in the VSDM.
 Description - Provide a brief description of what the profile does for display on managed
devices under Profile Details.
 Platform - Select which platform the profile is deployed to.
 Deployment
o Managed – Remove the profile when the device is unenrolled.
o Manual – Leave the profile installed when the device is unenrolled.
 Model and Minimum Operating System - Specify the model and minimum operating
system as parameters for profile deployment.
 Ownership - Specify ownership groups to limit deployment to the devices within the
particular group. The ownership groups are:
o Corporate-Dedicated.
o Corporate-Shared.
o Employee Owned.
 Importance and Sensitivity - Provide additional details and profile filtering capabilities
within the VSDM, without impacting profile deployment.
 Allow Removal - Specify the process for end-users to remove the specific profile from
their device.
o Always – Allow end-users to remove profiles without entering authorisation codes.
o With Authorisation – Allow end-users to remove profiles by entering the correct
authorisation code created by an Administrator.

 Numbers next to the profile name indicate the number of profiles created for the selected
profile type.
o Example:
Create Multiple Profiles of One Type
VSDM profile management allows the configuration of multiple payloads for many of the profile
payload categories (for example, Wi-Fi, Email Settings or LDAP), all within a single profile.
Use the following steps to create more than one payload for a select profile payload type:
1. Click the profile payload type from the left to open the payload editing window. If
necessary, click Configure to add the initial payload.
2. Add another payload of the same type by clicking the plus sign (+). Delete the selected
profile by clicking the minus sign (-).
3. Scroll through the profiles by clicking the arrows or select a specific page by clicking on the
corresponding circle. Example: Each circle represents a profile page:
Note: Configure each payload separately as an individual profile. Configuring multiple payloads
within one profile, such as an Email payload and a Wi-Fi payload, is not recommended. However,
configuring multiple payloads of a single type such as multiple Web-Clips within one profile, is
suggested when applicable.

 Custom Setting profiles allow administrators to directly input the XML code deployed to
devices over the air. This defines the settings of a configuration profile in the event that
new device platform capabilities are released before the VSDM profile capabilities are
updated.
 Custom profiles always open and close with the <dict> tags and contain, as a minimum, the
following profile keys:
o PayloadDisplayName - Optional. Name of the profile to be deployed to the device.
o PayloadDescription - Optional. Description of the profile to be deployed to the
device.
o PayloadVersion - The version of the payload to log updates and modifications.
o PayloadIdentifier - A reverse DNS format identifier that is unique to this specific
payload.
o PayloadUUID - A globally unique identifier for the payload.
o PayloadOrganisation - Optional. The organisation that deployed the profile payload.
o PayloadType - The type of payload that is going to be configured. For example, this
defines whether the payload is a passcode payload, Wi-Fi payload, or restrictions
payload.
 A sample of how these keys are deployed in the custom profile is shown below.
<dict>
<key>PayloadDescription</key>
<string>Configures 15-min autolock for iPads</string>
<key>PayloadDisplayName</key>
<string>15min AutoLock</string>

</dict>
 Once a PayloadType is defined, administrators must define specific keys for it. The keys
are all dependent on the type of payload that the administrator is trying to deploy. For iOS
devices, a list of all currently available payload specific property keys can be seen
here:http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#featuredarticles/iPhoneConfigurationProfil

Important Profile Management Considerations
The following tips will help the administrators to more efficiently manage their smart device fleet
through the profile management tools in the VSDM:
 It is recommended that administrators should only include one payload per profile.
o An exception to this recommendation would be when a Credential payload is needed
to accompany another payload (such as Email, VPN or Wi-Fi) in order for the profile to
work correctly (see Utilising Certificates for VSDM).
 Pay close attention to the device ownership type (Corporate-Dedicated, Corporate-Shared
or Employee-Owned) when specifying the profile General Settings.
o For example, the administrator may want to deploy more stringent Restriction profiles
to corporate-owned devices than to employee-owned devices.
 Profile assignments change with location group assignments.
o For example, if you move a user to a new Location Group, the profiles associated with
the original Location Group are removed and the user inherits the profiles associated
with the new Location Group.
 For maximum Email security, use Email profiles in conjunction with the Vodafone Secure
Email Gateway.
 To quickly create multiple profiles with similar deployment settings, use the Copy action
to copy the original profile and then make changes where necessary.

Application Management
The VSDM solution enables the administrator to wirelessly distribute and manage internal, public,
and purchased apps to iOS and Android devices across the mobile fleet. Furthermore, the
Enterprise App Catalogue allows the corporation to build secure business applications, which
can be deployed, managed, and secured alongside public apps via a custom app catalogue.
Through the Application management tools in the VSDM administrators can allow users to
effortlessly view, install, and update both internal and public applications.
Note: Any applications listed in this section are used as examples only and should not be seen as
recommended applications by Vodafone.
9.1
Using the Applications Page
The Applications page of the VSDM is the means of managing and pushing applications to enduser devices over-the-air. It provides a detailed list of Internal, public, and purchased applications
that have been created or recommended for the specified location groups or child location
groups. It is the centralised interface by which you can recommend public applications and
deploy internal or purchased applications to your smart device fleet.
To access the Applications page, navigate to Catalogue > Applications:
From here, you can view all the Applications that are being managed in the VSDM. You can
categorise applications within four VSDM groups —Internal, Public, Purchased, and Application
groups, as well as determine how to distribute those applications as described in Advanced
Application Management.
9.1.1
Navigating the Applications Page
There are several ways for you to select, order, identify, find, filter, etc. specific applications within
the VSDM. This section is divided into the following:
 Search Bar.

Managing Apple VPP Applications **
The VSDM offers a robust solution to Apple Volume Purchase Program (VPP) application
management and distribution. The sections below outline how you can combine this new feature
with the capabilities of VSDM mobile device management to easily manage and distribute iOS
application orders to the smart device fleet.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 149 of 249
The Apple Volume Purchase Program allows businesses and educational institutions to
purchase publicly available applications or specifically developed third-party applications in
volume for distribution to corporate devices.
Note: The Apple Volume Purchase Program is currently only available in Australia, Canada,
France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The process of deploying applications in volume throughout a business or educational institution
with the Volume Purchase Program can be separated into three main components:
1. VPP Enrolment - First, businesses and education institutions must enrol in the program
and verify with Apple that they are a valid business or institution.
o To register for the VPP, navigate to http://www.apple.com/business/vpp for
businesses, or to http://www.apple.com/itunes/education for education
institutions.
o More information regarding the Apple Volume Purchase Program, how it works and
program prerequisites can be found at the links above.
2. App Purchasing - Once enrolled in the Volume Purchase Program, businesses, and
educational institutions can purchase applications in bulk through the Volume Purchase
Program Website at https://vpp.itunes.apple.com/us/store.
o Log in with the VPP Apple ID created during the enrolment process.
o Find applications, define the quantity and purchase with a corporate credit card.
3. App Deployment - Once applications have been purchased, they can be distributed
throughout a smart device fleet through the use of redemption codes. For each
application purchase, there is an associated redemption code for end-users to redeem a
single copy of the application.
o These redemption codes are managed through a Redemption Code Spreadsheet
available at the Volume Purchase Program Website. This spreadsheet contains
details such as the redemption code, redemption status and most importantly, a
redemption URL that an end-user could use to automatically validate the code and
install the program through the App Store.
It is during this final step, App Deployment, that the VSDM can be used to enhance management
and distribution to a corporate smart device fleet. For businesses and educational institutions that
do not have any Mobile Device Management capabilities, Apple provides two solutions to
deploying redemption URL’s to end-users:
 Emailing the redemption URL directly to end-users.
 Posting the redemption codes and URLs directly to a corporate intranet site.
The section below describes how the VSDM can be used to automate and simplify this application
distribution process.
9.14.1
Upload the Apple VPP Redemption Code Spreadsheet to the
VSDM
The first step to manage and deploy VPP Application Orders through VSDM is by uploading the

Application Workflow*
Application workflow simplifies the internal app deployment process for organisations
developing their own applications. It allows organisations to delegate key steps in the process to
administrators who are responsible for individual stages. Some of the key benefits of this feature
include:
 Clear separation of responsibility
 Automated notifications for completed steps
9.16.1
Implementing Application Workflow
To bring the application workflow into effect, four different administrator user accounts have to
be created. Each of the created user accounts must have different administrator workflow
permissions assigned under a specific Location Group. Refer to Admin Accounts for creating
admin/user accounts and assigning permissions/roles.
Roles involved in Application Lifecycle Workflow
There are four major administrator roles participating in the application lifecycle at various
stages. The responsibilities of each of the roles are listed below.
Admin
Role
Description of Responsibility
Developer Is responsible for developing internal applications and revising them based on the
analysis of performance and feedback provided by reviewer, publisher, or sponsor.
Reviewer Is responsible for reviewing a new application created by developer, and assigning it
an appropriate description, screen shots, and Terms of Use. Reviewer also looks at
the change log provided by the developer for the application to determine if the
application is eligible for promoting to assignment or needs rework.
Assigner
Is responsible for assigning the application to location group(s)/User group(s)/Smart
group(s) and promoting it to a full rollout based on whether the application meets
the required criteria. Assigner accordingly makes recommendations to the publisher.
Publisher Is responsible for reviewing the assignment criteria for application configured by the
assigner and determines whether the right set of devices are being provided the
application. Publisher can also republish the application to devices that were

Important Application Management Considerations
 To track public applications on employee devices through the Device Details and Device
Control Panel, ensure that the VSDM Privacy Settings (specified in Configuration >
System Settings > Device > General > Privacy) allow for the collection and display of
application data.
 Some applications may have specific device prerequisites (for example, iCloud settings) in
order to be fully functional. Investigate application requirements before pushing
applications to end-users. Either enable the appropriate settings for end-users, or inform
end-users of any settings requirements.
 Use the SDK for maximum security and functionality in building secure internal business
applications.
 When deploying multiple versions of the same internal application, retire previous versions
of the application (see Application retirement) after the old versions are no longer needed
for testing or backup purposes.
 When creating advanced deployment settings for applications (such as Push Mode) ensure
that the end-user's device supports the specified deployment setting.

Content Management
Vodafone’s Mobile Content Management (MCM) solution, the Vodafone Content Locker,
allows administrators to manage document distribution and mobile access to corporate
documents through a web-based console. The Vodafone Content Locker application enables
your employees to securely access corporate resources, including direct links to SharePoint
documents, on-the-go from their mobile devices. Whether your company is looking to distribute
annual reports to shareholders or the latest presentation to the sales force, the Vodafone Secure
Device Manager (VSDM) ensures all corporate information is protected.
Furthermore, below actions can be performed using the Vodafone Content Locker:
Content can be configured to be accessed in online or offline modes and content data is
encrypted on the device. The following document level content is supported in the Content
Locker:
 iWork - Keynote (including Keynote09), Numbers (including Numbers09), Pages (including
Pages09)
 MS Office - Excel, PowerPoint, and Word
 Pictures - jpg, .png
 Videos - MOV (video/quicktime), MP4 (video/mp4)
 Audio - AAC (audio/aac), ALAC (audio/m4a), MP3 (audio/mpeg)
 Other - PDF, XML, Text, Rich Text Format (.rtf), Rich Text Format Dictionary (.rtfd), HTML,
ePUB, and iBooks
Content is managed at the Location Group level using a new Content menu/user interface.
 Similar to profiles and applications, content is created at a Location Group level but can be
assigned to one or many child Location Groups and/or User Groups.
 Additionally, content can be made available to devices/end users based on device
ownership.
 Administrators can enable EIS integration to provide users with direct links to SharePoint
documents.

Managing and Distributing Content
Management of the Vodafone Content Locker is centralised on the Content page in the VSDM.
11.1
Creating Document Categories
Document categories help organise the content and group the related documents together to
simplify and enhance the end-user experience. As Category is one of the mandatory fields while
uploading a document, the administrator has to create the category before uploading any
document. This prevents the administrator from committing the mistake of uploading a huge
document and then realising there is no category to assign it to.
Use the following steps to create a document category:
1. Navigate to the Categories View from the Content page.
2. Select Add Category to open the Add Category form.
3. Complete all the necessary information:
o Managed By – The location group that can edit, add subcategories, and delete the
category.

11.4
Important Content Locker considerations
The Location Group selected must be equal to the Managed Location Group or its child location
group. The Managed Location Group is the location where the document is uploaded and
managed. Once uploaded, the document can also be assigned to its child location group.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 175 of 249
The following are some of the points to be followed while completing the Content Locker
Import template for batch import:
 The administrator cannot add a document directly to a Parent category having that has
child categories. For example; a Book is the parent category which has Tech and Info as
child categories and is represented as Book/Tech and Book/Info. The administrator can
add a document either to the Book/Tech or Book/Info child categories but cannot add a
document to the Book (parent) category. Also, the administrator cannot add child
categories to a parent category if it already contains documents.
 In the Managed By and Location Group columns of the template, the administrator must
specify the Group ID and not the Location Group name.
 If the batch file being uploaded contains a CSV file with a line error, the balance of the
batch will upload successfully while the file containing the error will not. If the error is
subsequently corrected and the batch re-uploaded, this will lead to duplication of the files
that had already been successfully uploaded.
 If the administrator uses an http link for the file path, they need to manually replace any
instances of ‘%20’ with spaces to correctly reproduce the URL.

If the priority level is not specified for a document in the template, then the Download
Priority field for that document automatically defaults to Normal.
11.5
Using the Content Repository
The Content Repository allows administrators to link to folders, network drives and even
SharePoint directories containing various documents to upload into the Secure Content Locker.
Use the following steps to create a new Content Repository:
1. Navigate to Content > Content Management.
2. Click the Content Repository link on the left hand navigation.
3. Click Add to display the Add Content Repository form.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 176 of 249
4. Complete the fields as required:
 Name - Enter a name relevant to the content directory.
 Type - Enter the type of the content repository.
 Link - Enter the full path to the directory location.
 Location Group - Select the Location Group level that is to have access to this
Content Repository.
 Authentication Type - If login information is required to connect to the content
directory, select User and then provide the login details.
 Access Via EIS - If the file system or SharePoint drive is not accessible from the
VSDM server's domain, tick this checkbox to enable the EIS to connect to the content
directory. This is required for content integration in SaaS deployments, and also for
specific server-hardened on premise deployments. (You must have already
configured EIS to allow a connection from the VSDM in order for this to work).
 Allow Inheritance- Allow child Location Groups to have access to this Content
Repository.
 Enable Sync - This is required to enable sync between Sharepoint and VSDM server.
5. Click Save to save the changes.

11.5.1
Navigating Content in Repository Folders
The Show Repositories button on the All Content page allows administrators to view all the
content repositories folders and sub-folders and to navigate to the desired content within the
repository folder. On clicking Show Repositories, all the content repository folders are listed on
the left panel of the page. On clicking a particular content repository folder, all the documents
belonging to that content repository folder are displayed on the right panel of the page.
11.6
Managing Documents
There are several actions on the Content Management page that an administrator can perform
to manage the content of the corporate Secure Content Locker.
Select the Actions menu icon to perform the following actions:
 Edit - Edit any of the details created during the process of adding a new document.

Content Security and Analytics
The Vodafone Secure Content Locker (SCL) not only isolates, encrypts, and protects corporate
content on iOS devices, but it also enables the administrators to leverage higher levels of security
over and monitoring of, corporate documents. Some of the advanced security capabilities
include:
 Increased access security through two-factor authentication (using Certificates and a PIN).
 Secure transfer of document metadata to prevent 'man-in-the-middle' attacks.
 Administrator-controlled settings to block brute password attempts.
 Monitoring capabilities to view all Secure Content Locker activity on a per-document basis.
12.1
Configure Content Security Settings
The administrator can configure security features for individual documents on the Security tab
when publishing or managing individual documents. There are additional options to specify
general security settings for the SCL.
To view and configure these settings, navigate to:
System Settings > Applications > Secure Content Locker. Administrators can specify the
following settings to further protect the corporate content on end-user devices:
 Maximum allowable number of failed access attempts - Specify a low number of
allowable attempts for increased security.
 Authentication Grace Period - Specify a shorter grace period for increased security.
 Prevent Compromised Devices (Recommended) - Tick this box to check devices for
compromised status and prevent compromised devices from accessing content.
 Require (MDM) Enrolment (Recommended) - Tick this box to check for MDM enrolment
and prevent un-enrolled devices from accessing content.

Page 179 of 249
12.2
Content Analytics
Administrators can view detailed information on activity in the SCL (when the Software Document
Kit (SDK) is used), in addition to viewing activity for other applications using the SDK on the
Application Analytics page. To view the Analytics page, navigate to: Applications > Analytics.
The Analytics page contains a variety of application information. Particularly useful to
administrators are the Event Name and Event Data fields for viewing document activity. For
example, administrators can see when an end-user:
 Authenticates into the SCL.
 Installs a document.
 Opens a document.
 Adds a document to favourites.
12.3
Best Practice
 Create document categories before you begin uploading documents. Categories are
selected during the upload process but must be created separately.
o To create a category, select the Categories setting on the Content Management
page, or navigate to Content Management > Categories.
 Administrators may wish to enable end-users to store and access content locally using
third-party applications.
o If permitted, end-users can download and view a local copy of documents by selecting
the
icon.
 Enable enhanced VSDM functionality through Software Development Kit (SDK)
integration - Integrating the VodafoneContent Locker with the SDK enables the Secure
Content Locker to detect compromised devices and communicate with the corporate
server.
 Encourage end-users to enable GPS tracking - End-users can enable location services in
the Vodafone Content Locker settings to allow administrators to track and access GPS coordinates.

Email Management
The Vodafone Secure Device Manager (VSDM) provides administrators with several options for
configuring secure integration with corporate Email services. The most robust and extensible
solution is through the Vodafone Secure Email Gateway (SEG) which allows the administrator
to secure, monitor, and manage both the smart device fleet and corporate Email access, all from
the VSDM.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager simplifies and secures Email management by allowing the
administrator to perform the following tasks:
 Quickly monitor and troubleshoot Email server requests through the Secure Email
Gateway Dashboard.
 Gain visibility and control on top of the existing corporate Email structure to ensure that
corporate Email actions are secure and compliant.
 Create and edit Email Compliance rules, including Blacklist and Whitelist policies.
 Control Email access for both managed devices and unmanaged devices.
o For devices under VSDM management, the data collected from the SEG can be
correlated to the device’s existing record to show you how the managed devices are
interacting with your email server.
o For devices not under VSDM management, the data can be viewed on the dashboard to

Certificate Management
As digital information exchange evolves and becomes increasingly mobile, the possibilities for
information sharing multiply. Administrators are faced with the challenge of providing employees
with convenient access to enterprise resources while overcoming the ever-expanding security
concerns introduced by mobility and information fluidity. Traditional security technologies and
solutions are not sufficient to meet the stricter requirements for information security and data
loss prevention. In order to meet growing demands for information accessibility and security, an
enterprise needs a multi-faceted and scalable data security solution, and many enterprises have
turned to digital certificates and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for a resolution to this security
dilemma.
15.1
Benefits of Using Certificates
There are several key features that make certificates an ideal solution for enterprise security.
 Cross - Platform Scalability - Digital certificates can be leveraged to protect data across
many different mobile platforms. Just as the same message can be transmitted across
email or instant messaging, digital certificates can be used for security across both. The
extensibility of certificate security allows organisations to avoid implementing multiple
inferior single point security solutions that ultimately leave data vulnerable as it moves
from point to point.
 Multifunctional - Once a user or device receives a certificate, it can be utilised across
many different platforms for a variety of purposes.
o Encryption - Certificates can be used to encrypt digital information regardless of the
platform. For example, the S\MIME standard leverages certificates for email
encryption, while the HTTPS protocol utilises SSL to provide web page encryption.
o Message Signing - Enterprises in need of digital message signatures can leverage
certificates in order to prove message integrity and show that the message originates
from an authenticated sender and was not altered by any malicious third party.
o Authentication -Because digital certificates contain identifying information about
both the user and the device that has been certified by a trusted source, certificates
provide secure authentication into a number of systems such as email, Wi-Fi, and VPNs.
 High Security - Digital certificates are much more secure than traditional passwords
because they are not susceptible to common password cracking methods such as brute
force or dictionary attacks.
Innovation and the drive of enterprise-level business requirements have made the VSDM the
industry-leader in mobile certificate management.
15.2
Manage Certificates on the Certificate Dashboard
The VSDM is the centralised location for managing certificate authorities, its integration, and
other certificate management required for managed devices. All of these activities are centralised
on the Certificate Dashboard. To view the Certificate Dashboard, navigate to the Profiles &
Policies > Certificates page.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 200 of 249
Once a certificate has been issued to a device, administrators can perform the following actions
from the Certificates Dashboard:
 Manage Certificate Authorities.
 Renew Certificates.
o To renew a certificate, click the Actions menu next to the certificate and select Renew
Certificate.
 Revoke Certificates.
o To revoke a certificate, click the Actions menu next to the certificate and select
Revoke Certificate.
 Send certificate-related messages to devices.
o To send a push notification to all devices with a selected certificate installed, tick the
check box next to the certificate and click Send Message at the top of the Certificates
Dashboard.
o Select the application to which the message (the selected application must be
installed on the device) needs to sent and fill out the message body.
o Click Send.
Additionally, the Certificates Dashboard contains links to upload APNs certificates and set up
certificate integration.
15.3
Certificate Infrastructure Integration
The VSDM integrates with the certificate infrastructure in a way that allows the Enterprise to
distribute certificates for authentication purposes to devices containing corporate data. There are
several options for VSDM certificate infrastructure integration, but each requires detailed
technical information and therefore it is very important that the Certificate Infrastructure
Administrator be involved in this integration.
There are two ways in which VSDM integrates:
 Direct Certificate Authority (CA) integration:
o The VSDM can act as a proxy for certificate distribution.
 Simple Certificate Enrolment Protocol (SCEP) integration:
o The VSDM can act as a proxy for certificate distribution.

Utilising Certificates for VSDM
Once the certificate authority and certificate templates have been properly configured,
certificates can be leveraged within VSDM for a number of purposes, as detailed in the following
subsections.
15.5.1
Enterprise Wi-Fi, VPN, and EAS Authentication
Advanced Wi-Fi, VPN, and EAS configurations can now use certificates for authentication,
providing stronger security from unauthorised access than simple passwords. The VSDM can
automatically distribute these authentication certificates down to devices and configure the
device for Wi-Fi, VPN, or EAS access without any user interaction.
An overview of the process is as follows:
 Ensure that the Certificate Authority and Certificate Templates are properly configured,
then create a profile for your appropriate platform (iOS or Android for these capabilities).
o If you are using a static SSL certificate for all devices, you may skip this step and simply
upload the certificate into the VSDM for distribution.
 Complete all general profile settings and then choose either Credentials or SCEP
depending on the type of CA you have previously configured.
 From either page, specify all parameters to select the correct certificate to be used for WiFi, VPN, or EAS authentication.
 On the Credentials profile page perform only the following:
o If you are using a static SSL certificate that does not depend on the user, choose
Upload as the credential source and upload the certificate.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 211 of 249
o If you are generating a certificate from a CA for each user or device, ensure that your
credential source is Defined Certificate Authority and choose the correct certificate
template.
 Once you have completed the Credentials or SCEP profile settings, do not Save and
Publish.
 Select another payload in this profile for Wi-Fi, VPN, or EAS, depending on what the
certificate is being used for.
 Specify all settings for the chosen payload. Ensure that the authentication type utilises a
certificate and that the certificate you deployed in the Credentials or SCEP profile is
chosen.
o If authentication to the CA requires a trust (typically for internal certificate authorities),
also ensure that you have uploaded and selected the option to use a CA Root Trust
certificate.
 When complete,Save and Publish.
15.5.2
S/MIME Email Signing and Encryption
Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) is a standard for public key
encryption and signing which has become the standard for email signing and encryption. The
VSDM can automatically distribute certificates and configure email or Exchange ActiveSync to
utilise S/MIME signing and encryption without user interaction.
An overview of the process is as follows:
 Ensure that the Certificate Authority and Certificate Templates are properly configured,
then create a profile for your appropriate platform (iOS or Android for these capabilities).
o If you are using a static SSL certificate that is used for all devices, you may skip this step
and simply upload the certificate into the VSDM for distribution.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide

Page 212 of 249
 Complete all general profile settings and then choose either Credentials or SCEP
depending on the type of CA you have previously configured.
 From either page, specify all parameters to select the correct certificate to be used for WiFi, VPN, or EAS authentication.
 From the Credentials profile page perform only the following:
o If you are using a static SSL certificate that does not depend on the user, choose
Upload as the credential source and upload the certificate.
o If you are generating a certificate from a CA for each user or device, ensure that your
credential source is Defined Certificate Authority and choose the proper certificate
template.
 Once you have completed the Credentials or SCEP profile settings, do not Save and
Publish.
 Select another payload in this profile for Email, or EAS, depending on your type of email
infrastructure.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 – Admin Guide

Page 213 of 249
 Specify all settings for the chosen payload and ensure that Use S/MIME is ticked. Also
ensure that the certificate that selected in the credentials or SCEP payload is being used for
either signing or encryption as shown.
 When complete, choose Save and Publish.

Security and Compliance
The VSDM uses a customisable compliance engine to allow for robust compliance policy creation
and enforcement. The compliance capabilities allow administrators to protect proprietary
corporate data from unwanted exposure and to set rules for handling non-compliant activity on
managed devices. These compliance policies are centrally managed from the Compliance page
in the VSDM.
To navigate to the Compliance page, select Profiles & Policies > Compliance. From here, the
administrator can create several different types of compliance policies and establish
enforcement criteria:
 Device Policies - Device policies allow the administrator to create customised compliance
policies based on device criteria such as operating system, compromised status, and
application lists. All enforcement actions are customised in Device Policies.
 Email Compliance Policies - Email compliance policies include general rules for
accessing corporate Email in addition to enhanced Email access policies that are only
applicable to managed devices. For information on Email policies, please refer to Email
Compliance Policies.
Note: Email compliance policies are applicable when the SEG is installed on the device.
 Application Groups - Application policies are created based on custom groups of
blacklisted, whitelisted, and, required applications. In order to configure application
compliance enforcement, first build lists of applications using Application Groups, then
create compliance policies and actions using Device Policies.
16.1
Passcode and Restrictions Profiles Overview
In addition to the compliance engine, passcode and device restrictions provide further protection
to managed devices:
 Passcode compliance polices include the ability to enforce passcodes, set passcode
complexity, and manage auto-lock and passcode history settings.
 Restrictions profiles allow the administrator to prohibit and control the use of devicespecific functionality such as app installation, the device camera, and other similar
functionality.
To set Passcode and Restrictions profiles on individual devices, please refer to the Creating
Profiles.

16.2
Building Device Compliance Policies
Device compliance policies allow administrators to identify device-specific compliance policies
and instruct the VSDM to perform administrative actions on those devices when specific criteria
are met. This might include rules for, a noncompliant operating system, a compromised device or
a SIM card in a device having changed.
Using the compliance actions and escalations available, administrators can construct
customised, robust device policies to enforce corporate security policies.
Use the following steps to create a device compliance policy:
1. Navigate to Profiles & Policies > Compliance.
2. Click Add to create a new policy or click Edit under the Actions menu of an existing policy
to edit. The tabs at the top of the page represent the steps and criteria for creating a
compliance policy. The default view is the Rules tab.
16.2.1
Define Rules
1. Define the Rules.
2. Use the dropdown menu at the top of the page to choose whether to match All or Any of
the compliance rules (default option is All).
3. Choose the compliance area from the dropdown menu. The categories include:
o Application List (to determine if apps are blacklisted, whitelisted, or required, you need
to first configure Application Groups)
o Compromised Status
o Encryption
o Interactive Profile Expiry

o To apply the policy, click Finish and Activate.
o To just save the policy, select Finish.
Note: For Application Compliance Policies - Some application compliance policies require the
administrator to define application groups to identify applications that are blacklisted,
whitelisted, and required.
16.3
Application Groups and Policies
Application compliance policies enable administrators to enforce corporate compliance by
restricting access to unauthorised applications and ensuring that required applications are
present on corporate devices. The administrator can designate blacklisted, whitelisted, and
required application lists and perform administrative actions if the VSDM detects a non-compliant
application list. There are several components in the VSDM that enable administrators to build
and enforce application compliance policies:
 Application groups - created to specify blacklisted, whitelisted, and required applications.
 Device Compliance Policies - Built to designate actions for non-compliant applications.
Refer to the Device compliance policies section.
 Application Restriction profiles - Deployed (to supported Android devices) to enforce
application restrictions and requirements.
16.3.1
Define Application Groups
Application policies are created and managed according to groups (lists) of applications.
Use the following steps to create or edit a list of blacklisted, whitelisted, or required application:
1. Go to the Compliance page and select Application Groups from the left sidebar of the
page.
2. Select Add Group to create a new application group or, to edit an existing application
group, select Actions at the end of the row and choose Edit).

o Platform - The device platform to which the application compliance policy applies.
Currently, the only platform options available are iOS and Android.
o Name - The name of the policy for reference in the VSDM (for example, 'Apple
Blacklisted Games'.)
o Application Name - The name of the application for which you are creating a
compliance rule.
o Enter the Application ID and optionally enter the application Version.
 Specifying the application ID allows VSDM to more accurately detect devices that
have the blacklisted application installed. It identifies applications by the exact
bundle ID rather than simply searching for the application name as entered in the
Application Name field.
 To specify any version of the app, enter an asterisk (*) in the Version field to act as a
wildcard.
4. Click Add Application to add applications to the list.
5.
Click Next to proceed to the Assignment tab.

 Symbian.
 Blackberry.
16.5
Privacy Policy
Administrators can set complex privacy policies within the VSDM. These policies apply to specific
device ownership types within Location Groups (ownership types are: 'Corporate - Dedicated',
'Corporate - Shared', 'Employee Owned', and 'Unassigned').
Use the following steps to access and amend privacy policies:
1. Navigate to Configuration > System Settings > Device > General > Privacy.
For each privacy policy, administrators have three options for handling device
information. The policies are defined by a filled circle, half-circle, or an empty
circle top of the screen.
o Collect and Display - The information is collected so that administrators can view the
data in the VSDM.
o Collect - The information is collected by administrators cannot view the data.
o Do Not Collect - The information is not collected.
2. Adjust the privacy policy information settings by moving the mouse over the circle that
matches up with the privacy policy and device ownership type. A small popup menu
displays the privacy setting options:
o Click the appropriate icon to change the setting.
3. Click Save to finish the process and immediately apply the settings.
16.5.1
Commands Privacy
The Commands section at the bottom of the page allows the administrator to restrict certain
commands based on device ownership type.
Vodafone Secure Device Manager R3 - Admin Guide
© 2013 Vodafone Group Services
Page 224 of 249
A full circle indicates that a command is allowed, while an empty circle indicates that the
command is disabled. Currently, the only command that can be allowed or disallowed is Full
Wipe.
1. Click the appropriate circle to choose the desired permissions.
2. Click Save to immediately apply the settings.
Note: The Privacy Settings explained above affect whether or not device and user information is
displayed both on the VSDM and on the Self-Service Portal. Please be aware of the privacy
settings in place when navigating through user and device information (especially the pages
explained in the following sections: Device Information, Device Details, Remote Actions, and
Device Details Management).
Many of the Self-Service Portal and Device Wipe settings are determined by both Privacy settings
and Role settings (Users > Admin Accounts). If multiple settings are in place, the strictest policy is
enforced.
16.6
Important Security and Compliance Considerations
 To provide maximum security and data protection for both end-users and the managing
enterprise, privacy settings work in conjunction with Role Configuration. In order to ensure
that the configured privacy settings are correctly implemented, it is recommended that
you make a note of the following role settings:
o User Role Settings (Users > User Accounts > Roles) control the display of user and
device data in the Self-Service Portal (SSP).

Reports and Alerts
17.1
Reports
The VSDM has extensive reporting capabilities that provide administrators with actionable, resultdriven statistics about their device fleets. Administrators can use these pre-defined reports or
create custom reports based on specific devices, user groups, date ranges, or file preferences.
In addition, an administrator can schedule any of these reports for automated distribution to a
group of users and recipients on either a defined schedule or a recurring basis. These features are
all centralised within the VSDM.
To access the Reports page, navigate to Reports & Alerts > Reports. From here, there are
several key pieces of functionality that administrators can use to leverage the VSDM's reporting

Categories.
17.4
Syslog
Syslog is a client\server protocol used to integrate the event log data from the VSDM on a
separate server in a reliable and secure way. Syslog is used in the VSDM for logging and storing
event records that have occurred in the VSDM and on managed devices. The Syslog protocol
transmits the messages on event notification and alerts across network using UDP/TCP protocol.
Messages are sent by operating system (BSD Unix) to VSDM at the start or end of a process. The
two major reasons for having a centralised Syslog server are:
 For Security - When an administrator wants to keep some of the event logs safely off-site in
a secure location, the Syslog server is used for this purpose.
 For Convenience - In the event of a crashed server, the administrator can check the kernel
error logs on the centralised Syslog server. The Syslog pattern for various dates over an
extended time can also be checked and the log files from the Syslog server can be
matched, searched, and replaced at any time.
Note: This feature is for on-premise customers only.
17.5
Integrate Syslog
Use the following steps to configure Syslog integration:
1. Navigate to Configuration > System Settings > Admin > Syslog.

Enterprise Integration
The VSDM has extensive capabilities to help corporations easily integrate their VSDM solution
with existing enterprise systems. The integration allows users to authenticate using enterprise
directory service credentials and provides even deeper integration with enterprise systems by
allowing the administrator to leverage AD/LDAP user groups in the VSDM. Furthermore, the use
of device management APIs, which can be integrated into third party or internal applications,
provides a high level of both management and security.
18.1
Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and
Active Directory (AD) Integration
Vodafone integrates with the existing idea of LDAP User Groups to make user enrolment and
management both flexible and intuitive. Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server
assigns User Groups based on pre-existing grouping systems (as defined by corporate Email,
Usernames, or other distinguishing variables). New User Group management capabilities include:
 LDAP Synchronisation - Vodafone adopts the existing organisational identifiers and
regularly syncs with the native database to automatically detect and apply any changes
 Increased user group management capabilities, such as adding profiles and compliance
policies to entire Location Groups and performing device syncs across the Location Groups.
 More application management flexibility: Add or remove applications for an entire Location
Groups.
18.1.1
System Authentication
Integration of the VSDM server with a corporate directory services server provides directory based
account access and enables the administrator to leverage LDAP/AD groups in the VSDM. When
creating user accounts, settings can be identical or different (explained in the next section).
Use the following steps to configure LDAP or AD integration:
1. Navigate to Configuration > System Settings > System > Directory Services. The
Directory Services page displays the fields in the Server tab.

send a NameID for an authenticated user. This value is not required as the VSDM
obtains the username from the FriendlyName 'uid' required attribute.
o Ignore SSL Errors - This value specifies whether or not the VSDM server should check
SSL trust for the identity provider. If SSL errors are ignored, the VSDM server
communicates with the identity provider regardless of any SSL trust issues.
o Validate Identity Provider Certificate - This value specifies whether or not VSDM
should check if authentication responses are signed with the expected identity
provider certificate. This value is only required when using 'Post' as the identity
provider may not sign responses using artifact responses.
o Identity Provider Certificate - The identity provider’s public key certificate. This value
is set automatically from the imported metadata.
o Authentication Request Security - This value specifies whether or not the VSDM
should sign authentication request messages. This value must be set in order to

to port 443).
 Internal access to the systems to integrate (connections configured in the corresponding
System Settings).
 An administrator account for EIS. Ensure the account’s role has the permission to “Allow
Remote Access” located under Remote Services > Security.
For installation, use either the files available for download from the Enterprise Integration page
(navigate to Configuration > System Settings > Enterprise Integration) or files received from
Vodafone support. The Enterprise Integration section of System Settings is automatically
configured during the installation of EIS behind your firewall. Use these settings if you need to
adjust anything after the configuration has been initialised by EIS after installation, or if you
cannot follow this automated process.
Use the following steps to begin EIS configuration:
1. Navigate to Configuration > System Settings > System > Enterprise Integration
2. Tick the Enable Enterprise Integration Service checkbox.

o Authentication - Select either of the following authentication radio buttons:
 Certificate for message-level encryption over https.
 Add HTTP authentication with a username/password that can be set here and
adjusted on the EIS server’s configuration page.
o Go to the Enterprise Services section and Enable or disable the services that the
VSDM should integrate with EIS.
Note: Vodafone SaaS already offers email delivery using SMTP, but you can also enable
EIS to use your own SMTP server (details are entered in System Settings > System >
Email (SMTP)).
o Advanced - Enable or disable the components that the VSDM should integrate with
EIS.
Note: The certificate generated during auto configuration has the thumbprint located
here; it can be cleared and renewed if necessary.
If EIS is unable to connect to the API during installation, you can generate a configuration script
(encrypted) by following these steps:
 Generate the certificate, save the page and click Refresh.
 Export settings for the EIS server (this prompts you to set a password).
 Download the XML file and import it into the EIS configuration (this automatically
configures the EIS server).

SMS Integration
Similar to Email (SMTP) setup, SMS Integration page enables the SMS messaging capabilities of
the VSDM. However, in order to enable this functionality, administrators must first purchase a
CellTrust Account so that they can provide authentication into the Celltrust SMS Gateway.

o Nickname - Is the Celltrust account nickname.
o User Name - Is the Celltrust account username.
o Password - Is the Celltrust account Password.
o Select Save to save the SMS configuration settings.

Use the VSDM API
The API page establishes the security of your Location Groups to use certificates. Once this is set
up, integrating systems can use the certificate to securely communicate with your environment
through the VSDM API.
The most common example of an integrating system is Vodafone's Secure Email Gateway(SEG).
In order to monitor and control an SEG from a specific Location Group, an API certificate is
required during the installation process.
Use the following steps to generate an API certificate for your environment:
1. Navigate to Configuration > System Settings > System > General > API > Soap API.*
2. Enter the password into the New Certificate Password field.
3. Select the Generate Client Certificate button. The API certificate is now available for use.
4. Export the API certificate for use in an integrating system (such as the SEG):
5. Re-enter the certificate password.
6. Select the Export Client Certificate button. The certificate is now ready and can be used
on your computer and in the integrating system.

Important Enterprise Integration Considerations
 As part of the initial VSDM setup, administrators must configure several core system
settings (in the System Settings page of the VSDM) that enable integration between the
VSDM server and corporate infrastructure. These settings should not be changed once they
are configured.
 If you are leveraging user group integration, ensure that Directory Services (and EIS, if
enabled) integration is configured at the same level as the root location group to which the
user groups belong. . When user group integration is enabled, directory users can only be
managed at the level of the Directory Services settings; you should only add new users at
this level to ensure full management permissions.
