Managing HCL Nomad via an MDM provider

Starting with version 1.0.4, HCL Nomad for iOS supports managed configuration via most common Mobile Device Management (MDM) providers. All MDM providers are slightly different in how they implement managed configurations for applications.

Note: This article is intended to provide details on how to enable managed configurations for the HCL Nomad application – it is not intended to be a replacement for a specific MDM provider’s documentation.

HCL Nomad has defined a set of managed configuration settings that can be uploaded and configured in your MDM provider’s App Catalog.

Your MDM provider might support implementing configuration settings through uploading them via an XML file. For this case, an XML file is available through this support article to use as a starting point for your customizations.

Note: The following table describes the Nomad configuration settings that are available. Each MDM provider has its own method for implementing these settings. Refer to your MDM provider's documentation for details.
