BES IT Policy settings mapping to Application Permissions

We are in the process of deploying ATT enhanced PTT by Kodiak Networks through BES. The app gets deployed successfully but crashes/closes right after the "Application Permissions Request" prompt requesting permission to Location resource.


If disassociate this device by selecting "Delete only the organization data and remove device" in BES and reboot the device, I can then open the app, it asks me for permission on three things: Location, Personal Information, and Appearance Settings and after I hit save, the application runs properly.


But as soon as the device is activated to a user, and even if the user has no policy assigned to him (i.e. default policy with all default settings), the application only gets as far as the "Application Permissions Request" prompt and then the device dumps back to the home screen after hitting save.


According to AT&T, the app needs the following permissions (first column) to run:


Application PermissionIT Policy SettingApplication Control Policy Setting
Security / Allow Resetting of Idle Timer
PERMISSION_RECORDINGCommon / Disable Voice Note Recording 


I am trying to find out where these permissions are defined/set in the IT policies and or the Application Control Policies. Have found at least the "Allow Resetting of Idle Timer" that has a default setting of No. I suspect there are more.


Is there a place where this mapping of Application Permissions to definable policy settings in BES exists? If not, can someone help me fill out the above table. The two IT policy settings I have listed above are just best guesses of mine.
