Policy CSP - CredentialProviders

Tip

These are ADMX-backed policies and require a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.
