Applying Zebra MX advanced device settings via SOTI EMM

Zebra devices have a cool set of extensions called MX. It can do tons of things. But, can we expect every EMM vendor to timely implement them natively in their consoles?

SOTI EMM/MDM is one such good example, as UI there is quite limited. However, SOTI has a very powerful tool called SOTIscript. I have already covered, for example, how SOTIscript allows changing virtually any standard Android OS setting.

Similarly, we can use SOTIscript to apply MX settings on Zebra devices, extending the level of control over the device.



Changing Android device settings unavailable in SOTI native GUI

With most MDM/EMM solutions you are limited to whatever options are available in the GUI (I’m looking at you, AirWatch).¬†SOTI in this regard looks weird, since the number of settings is not particularly rich, which makes it seem limited. However, SOTI has the super-awesome SOTIscript, and SOTIscript has a number of super-awesome¬† (but barely documented) script commands.

Today, we will take a look at how to use those commands to change (virtually) any Android OS setting available on your device via SOTI MDM.
