Due to increasing concern (of end-users and Googe) on privacy intrusion, it is increasingly unlikely that you can silently change the location related options with existing MobiControl script command "writesecuresetting".   Some OEM brands, such as Zebra and Intermec, may have their own proprietary mechanism to allow such configuration remotely.

I find it hard to believe that is the script you are using for the wifi notification. Are you sure you're not using:

 

writesecuresetting -glo wifi_networks_available_notification 0

 

With that said, have you tried using watchsettings on script to capture the setting change that you're referring to? RC is very likely right about that particular setting not being controllable but if it is possible to configure it via writesecuresetting then you'd need to identify the setting name and value with watchsettings first. 

 

If that doesn't work you may need to resort to a manufacturer specific management API such as the Zebra MX layer. This configuration option is in fact available to Zebra Android devices through MX but unless that's an ET55 tablet you're not going to be able to leverage MX:

Hi Anil, 

 

Thank you for requesting an answer from SOTI Support Staff. 

 

Here is a post I had placed some information on how to use the writesecuresetting commands especially with the OS version you are inquiring about as Google has made changes in the later versions of their OS and some of the commands do not work as they once did.

Hopefully you find it useful in resolving your inquiry.

 

Cheers,

Come to think of it, this is also a feature of Android Enterprise Feature Control in SOTI 14.x:
