Authorize a unique WIFI access point in Kiosk mode
You can define all 160+ Wifi Configurations (SSID, credentials, modes, etc) in one or more profiles.
In addition, if GPS location is available, you can add geo-fences in alert rules to dynamically relocate devices to different device groups targeted with the right Wifi Configuration profiles. This is possible in your case partly because each of your devices has cellular connection while it still don't have access to any new Wifi connection(s) just after entering a new zone defined by the geofence.
Thanks for your response Raymond.
Will look at setting up profiles with Wifi Configurations for established or key locations.
However, due the adhoc nature of the way we operate, not all Wifi Configuration details are available until we access or setup a site. We might also encounter sites where Wifi Configuration details have changed without notification.
Therefore to provide flexibility, we were looking at ways of allowing the end user configure the connection.
Thanks again you assistance!
If your device end-users are allowed to add/configure any Wifi network in kiosk mode, you can simply add a kiosk item
to achieve what you want.
Utilizing 'action://CONFIGURE_WIFI' will work well within our environment. We have a level of trust in our end users, therefore this solution is simple, more that adequate and provides the flexibility we require.
Also, just wondering whether there's similar command or equivalent configuration for Bluetooth ??
Have had a quick look through Help materials but nothing found as yet.
(Just doing some work around utilization of External Bluetooth GPS (Garmin Glo) with Android Enterprise devices. )
Thanks again Raymond. Much appreciated
There is no similar command for bluetooth. However you can consider the following options:
1. Use Soti's "Settings Manager" app and corresponding configuration payload in a profile to grant bluetooth control
2. Use script in two kiosk menu items, one for turning on BT and the other for turning it off.
