Disabling BlackBerry App World on BES 5.0?

[ Edited ]

Hi all,

 

Just installed BES 5.0 for Exchange on a new server.  We are looking to disable access to Blackberry App World as we have done in the past on a previous install (BES 4.1.6).

 

I cannot see the "Disable BlackBerry App World IT policy rule" under Security and I have also read KB 17809 (http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=KB17809)

 

Does anyone know how I can disable this in 5.0?

 

Thank you.

You'll need to import the IT policy definitions file into your BES.

 

- Download and extract the file attached to the KB you referenced

- In the BAS, navigate to BlackBerry solution management >> Policy >> Manage IT policy rules

- Click Import IT policy definitions

- Browse to the xml file from the downloaded pack

- Hit save

 

You should now see the Disable App World policy in the Security policy group.

The only stupid question is the one you don't ask before you reboot the BES.
