Resend IT policies from BES programmatically (via API or similar).

Hi all,

 

Is it possible to resend the IT policy to a blackberry from the associated BES programmatically (and how)?

 

The functionality I am trying to achieve is the same as what is accomplished with the 'Resent IT policy to a device' in the BES administration service web app. I have tried to use the BES User Administration Client (called from my application) to achieve this functionality but it is not supported for BES 5.x, what I want to know is whether it is possible via the BlackBerry Administration API to achieve this? I've taken a look at the BES 5 APIs but not been able to work out a way to achieve what I need to. To clarify, I want to initiate the resend of the policy from my application running on the BES, not from an application on the blackberry (although if the latter is possible I would consider using this instead).

 

Thanks in advance.

You can resend by assigning the same IT POlicy a second time I believe. There is no "resend" command however.

Ok, and the seccond assigment will actually iniate a re-application of policy to the deviec? I only ask because if I use the User Administration Tool and try to apply the same policy twice the second time I get an error, I assumed the API would behave the same.

 

Thanks.

Sorry, I stand corrected, we do have a call in BWS to resent the IT Policy:
