BES 10.2.3: iPad doesn't inherit WorkSpace Policy



I just have updated our BES to fix known issues. Unfortunately the password policy for workspace still doen't apply.

Password policy for the device works as expected.



Work Connect: 1.0.11873.150

BES 10 Client:

iPad iOS 7.1.2


Issue 1:

IT-Policy set to:

  • Allow sequential and repeated character passwords = FALSE
  • Require letters = TRUE
  • Minimum number = 1
  • Require numbers = TRUE
  • Minimum number = 1
  • Restrict password length = TRUE
  • Minimum length for the work space password = 6


On the iPad a password "1234" is accepted for the workspace (new user activation)



Workspace will require 6 digit password with minimum 1 letter, 1 number and no sequential characters.


Issue 2:

IT-Policy set to:

  • Device Password = TRUE
  • Enable auto-lock = TRUE
  • Maximum auto-lock period = 5 Minutes
  • Time after a device locks that it can be unlocked without the password = TRUE
  • Maximum lock grace period = 5 Minutes


Workspace Policy set to:

  • Lock work space when device locks = FALSE
  • Lock device after inactivity in work space =  TRUE
  • Inactivity period = 15 Minutes
  • Lock work space after inactivity = 15 Minutes



Workspace locks when device locks (tested via hardware button)

If workspace is closed, Workspace locks after 15 SECONDS (!) of inactivity in the personal space.



Workspace won't lock for 15 minutes, even if workspace is closed and/or device is locked.



Any ideas or similar issues ?
