Trying out Android device operations


  1. Access the WSO2 EMM's device management console using alex as the username and alexuser as the password that was sent via email.
  2. Click View under DEVICES.
  3. Click on the registered device.

    Alex tries out the various device operations via the WSO2 EMM console.

    1. Alex misplaces the mobile device, so Alex clicks Ring to ring the device and find out if the device is lying around the workspace.

    2. Alex then remembers that the phone was unlocked, so Alex uses the Device Lock operation to lock the device so that the content in the device will be safe.

    3. Using the Location operations Alex finds out that device is in Chris's office. Alex calls Chris and asks Chris to call back from the device.

    4. To make sure Chris can call using the device, Alex removes the device lock (password) using the Clear Password  operation.
