Lockdown screen | More macros in SOTI MobiControl

Lockdown screen | More macros in SOTI MobiControl

Sent a query to SOTI support if more macros were supported to be used in lockdown screen templates than the ones published on the link below. They got back that they were the only ones. 

Macros in SOTI MobiControl

They pointed me to a possible suggestion of utilizing "Custom Attributes" but not sure how I could realize what I wish to achieve with that. Hardware used is both Honeywell & Zebra.

For example I've gotten requests to present the OEM version and OS version on the lockdown template for maintenance purposes. Would make life much easier when you do not have access to MobiControl when checking devices on the floor.

- Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful if I can resolve it when utilizing the Lockdown templates from SOTI.

Custom Data:

%MCCustomData:NAME%

 

Custom Attributes:

%CustomAttr:NAME%

 

 

Zebra has a utility called GetPatchVer that when run creates an ini file that contains the BSP/OEM information. You can then create a CustomData rule to extract that value off of the device into a property value that can then be referenced using the CustomData macro.  I'm not sure about accomplishing the same with Honeywell however. 

 

 

Alternatively, OEM Version is already a property that is gathered from the device in SOTI so you could use that as Filter Criteria and then assign different lockdowns based on that criteria.

You can export required property (e.g. OEM version, OS version, etc. as you said) of selected devices as CSV file on MobiControl v14+.  Then use the file for bulk import of custom attribute value, which can then be displayed on lockdown menu using corresponding macro %CustomAttr:YOUR_CA_NAME%.
