Scope:

  • Device

This policy setting allows you to prevent app notifications from appearing on the lock screen.

If you enable this policy setting, no app notifications are displayed on the lock screen.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, users can choose which apps display notifications on the lock screen.

Tip

This is an ADMX-backed policy and requires 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.
