Lock Device via API

Hi all,

 

What is the correct way to call in the Web service API to lock a device?

 

Which calls should be used?

 

thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Smiety

Hi Smiety,

 

Currently this can be done from BWS or BAA by using the setDevice(s)Password() API. This call requires that the device password be changed but also locks the target device(s) after the action is complete.

 

Regards,

Garett

Re: Lock Device via API

Can we lock/wipe a BB10 device, programatically?

Re: Lock Device via API

Are you asking from an enterprise or device-side perspective?

Re: Lock Device via API

I'd suggest posting in one of the device-side boards based on the platform you are using (WebWorks, Native, Cascades etc). This board is targeted for developing for the BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
