Code Block
curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer <EMM_API_TOKEN>" -d @'<JSON_PAYLOAD>' -k -v https://<EMM_HOST>:<EMM_HTTPS_PORT>/mdm-admin/policies/inactive-policy

  • For more information on how to generate the <EMM_API_TOKEN>, see Generating the EMM API Token.
  • Define the path to the JSON file, which includes the required properties to add a policy as the as the <JSON_PAYLOAD> value. For more information, see the Sample JSON Definition.
  • By default, <EMM_HOST> is localhost. However, if you are using a public IP, the respective IP address or domain needs to be specified.
  • By default, <EMM_HTTPS_PORT> has been set to 9443. However, if the port offset has been incremented by n, the default port value needs to be incremented by n.

Example:

Code Block
curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer 33392fb365b3ac693b405b565ddc8a3a" -d @'policy.json' -k -v https://localhost:9443/mdm-admin/policies/inactive-policy
