    application blacklisting in EMM

    mcoulon

      Hi everyone,

       

       

      I want to blacklist for example all Angry Birds versions. I can to that by retrieving the application ID’s  for each version and add each application ID to the  blacklist in EMM.

      It means that I have to continuously  keep myself updated and look for  the latest angry birds version and their ID's

      Is there away to blacklist all application from a manufacturer  at once?

       

      If you look at the application ID of   ‘Angry Birds Free’. It looks like this ‘com.rovio.angrybirdsfree’.

      I think that the application ID of ‘Angry Birds Space’ will look like that ‘com.rovio.angrybirdsspace’

       

      What is the best way to blacklist them all at once . by doing this ? ‘com.rovio.angrybirds*’

      Is there another way?

       

      Thank you!

      Regards

          That's a good question and your idea sounds like a very reasonable possibility.  Please test and post your results.

            Hi All ,

            This is a reply from Mcafee support;

             

             

            How to block various applications based on name, please review the following notes related to the use of wildcards:

             

            The wild card supported when adding applications to be blacklisted, it is the asterisk ‘*’. This wild card ‘*’, it is meaningful only at the beginning or end of the “Application Name” or “Bundle Identifier/Package Name”; so that if an EMM user uses the wild card in the middle or anywhere else, it will be consider a literal.

            • When a user likes to block applications with a name that start with ‘bird’, then the entry should be ‘bird*’ (without quotes.) • When a user likes to block applications with a name that ends on ‘bird’, then the entry should be ‘*bird’ (without quotes.) • When a user likes to block applications with a name that contains ‘bird’, then the entry should be ‘*bird*’ (without quotes.)
