LockDown -> orientation

LockDown -> orientation

Hello all,

I have a tablet Panasonic FZ B2 on android 6.0.

Where i work we used soti mobicontrol server on version 13.3.3454

On the tablet , i have downloaded the apk => soti client on version 13.6.0 build 1257.

The tablet is well enrolled into the server.


I have created a profile with a lockDown -> simple html page by default

I've add an icon, a name for this icon and the link as this : browser://...


All work, i can add the lockdown on the tablet, unlock the lockdown and so on => perfect :)


well, now the lock down is put on  Landscape mode ...how i can change the orientation of the lock down ?

Because, after install the lockdown is on landscape ...and i would like to change it to PORTRAIT ...


thanks for all

I don't have your device model to test, but under normal circumstances, most Android device models have "auto-rotation on/off" option in their Settings and/or Shortcut/Notification-bar when one swipe down from the screen top margin.  If you have this option enabled,  the orientation of your lockdown menu should automatically be changed accordingly.

Hi ChristopheBERNARD,


In addition to Raymond's response you can also try sending the device a script which should correct the orientation for the lockdown profile. 


The script is: lockdownorientation portrait


If you wanted more information about the script you can find it in our version 13 documentation here: SOTI Version 13 documentation - scripts

Could you tell us how do you undo this setting after you have sent "lockdownorientation orientation". I don't want to set it to one or the other, just want it to go back to adjusting itself depending on how the tablet is being held.

Hi Victor,


The below script changes the orientation of the display image of a device that is remote controlled

writeprivateprofstring RcOrientationFix <manufacturer>_<model><value>


  • <manufacturer> is from android.os.Build.MANUFACTURER("ro.product.manufacturer")and falling back to android.os.Build.BRAND("ro.product.brand")if the manufacturer is unknown
  • <model> is from android.os.Build.MODEL("ro.product.model")
  • <value> is one of the following:
     * CW denotes clockwise
     * CCW denotes counter-clockwise
     * NONE denotes no rotation
     * UPSIDEDOWN denotes upside-down
