How local application settings relate to policies

You can use policies to set identical values of the application settings for all devices in a group.

The values of the settings that a policy specifies can be redefined for individual devices in a group by using local application settings. You can set only the values of settings that the policy allows to be modified, that is, the unlocked settings.

The value of a setting that the application uses on a client device (see the figure below) is defined by the lock () position for that setting in the policy:

Local application settings are changed after the policy is first applied in accordance with the policy settings.
