A default requirement from any organisation will be to add some level of customised appearance to their desktop infrastructure. Within Workspace One UEM we have the ability to easily push out custom XML that will do just that!
Create a new profile within the Workspace One UEM console for a Windows Desktop machine and select device profile.
Now all we need to do is name the profile, assign it and add the custom XML:
The last payload on the left, provides us the ability to pass custom settings directly to the Windows 10 OMA client on the device. This opens the door to apply an extensive set of CSP configurations that can be found on the Microsoft website. VMware has also built a tool to allow you to use a friendly GUI to build out the CSP XML over at https://vmwarepolicybuilder.com (free MyVMware Account required).
To set the background and the lock screen we need to add our custom XML.
As you can see, the ‘Install Settings’ replace the current configuration on the device and the ‘Remove Settings’ does the opposite, it deletes the settings that we’ve pushed out.
My example XML will set the background and lock screen after the user logs off and logs back in:
