cross mark cross mark cross mark cross mark check mark check mark
Note

This policy is only enforced in Windows 10 Mobile and not supported in Windows 10 for desktop. For desktop devices, use the AppLocker CSP instead.

An XML blob that specifies the application restrictions company want to put to the device. It could be an app allow list, app disallow list, allowed publisher IDs, and so on. For a list of Windows apps and product IDs, see inbox apps. For more information about the XML, see the ApplicationRestrictions XSD.

Note

When you upgrade Windows Phone 8.1 devices to Windows 10 Mobile with a list of allowed apps, some Windows inbox apps get blocked causing unexpected behavior. To work around this issue, you must include the inbox apps that you need to your list of allowed apps.

Here's additional guidance for the upgrade process:

  • Use Windows 10 product IDs for the apps listed in inbox apps.
  • Use the new Microsoft publisher name (PublisherName="CN=Microsoft Corporation, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US") and Publisher="CN=Microsoft Windows, O=Microsoft Corporation, L=Redmond, S=Washington, C=US" if you are using the publisher policy. Do not remove the Windows Phone 8.1 publisher if you are using it.
  • In the SyncML, you must use lowercase product ID.
  • Do not duplicate a product ID. Messaging and Skype Video use the same product ID. Duplicates cause an error.
  • You cannot disable or enable Contact Support and Windows Feedback apps using ApplicationManagement/ApplicationRestrictions policy, although these are listed in the inbox apps.

An application that is running may not be immediately terminated.

Value type is chr.

Value evaluation rule - The information for PolicyManager is opaque. There is no most restricted value evaluation. Whenever there is a change to the value, the device parses the node value and enforces specified policies.
