Difference between mxconfig and mxxmlconfig scripts
V 12 mxxmlconfig is a tricky topic as we are no longer focusing our efforts on legacy versions of MobiControl. I have reached out to our OEM team for some information on this for you. Once received I will update this tread accordingly.
Did you ever receive a response to this? Interestingly, the v14 docs don't state "uses the older XML format (MX Legacy)." How did you determine that? Was it the documentation comment "This command is only available on Motorola Android devices."?
I want to use MX to query a value on the device. mxconfig doesn't have an "outputpath". Does Soti's previous response imply that mxxmlconfig support is going away? If not, what versions of MX does this support?
Note: This script command is applicable only to Motorola Android devices.
mxxmlconfiguses the older XML format (MX Legacy).
This information was a direct quote from the V13 help document. I have placed a link below to the V 13 helpfile for easy reference.
Adding to the MC online help documentation, MX support is not going away, we apologize for any confusion:
- Mxconfig command: It is correct that this command is only supported by MobiControlv13.3 agent and Zebra devices. Before a profile is created in ZebraStageNow, one thing to make sure is correct version of MX is selected so that the profile is supported by the devices. To confirm which version of MX is supported by your device, please visit here or contact Zebra. Once the profile is created in StageNow, please select Export for MDM (this is important) and you can use mxconfig script to execute the configurations in the xml file once it is transferred to the device using MobiControl. Please refer to https://www.soti.net/mc/help/v14.0/en/console/gsrindex.html?gsrid=other/stagenow.html
- Mxxmlconfig command: MobiControl never dropped support for this command, provided that your Zebra device still supports it, this should be achievable on MobiControl v12 for Zebra devices. To confirm if your Zebra devices still support this format and to know the exact MX specifications for the XML file to be generated for this command, please contact Zebra. Once the XML file is created, please follow the process as mentioned in the following documentation:
