How to configure Seuic devices with OEMConfig

OEMConfig, a brand-new Android standard from Google, enables the OEMs to create a set of custom-made features specific to their devices that UEMs like Hexnode can immediately support. This enables organizations to seamlessly roll out these restrictions/configurations to devices immediately as the feature releases with no further delay. The OEMConfig feature in Hexnode allows you to deploy these settings to your devices remotely.

You can use OEMConfig in Hexnode to set up your Android Enterprise-managed Seuic CRUISE 1 (Android 9.0) device for work using OEMConfig.

To set up Seuic devices with OEMConfig,

  1. Enroll your organization in the Android Enterprise.
  2. Enroll the device in the Android Enterprise either as Device Owner or Profile Owner.
  3. Approve and add Seuic OEMConfig app to the Hexnode app repository.
  4. Set up the app configurations for the app.
  5. Associate the configurations with target entities.

Add Seuic OEMConfig to the Hexnode app inventory

  1. On your Hexnode UEM console, navigate to the Apps tab.
  2. Click on +Add Apps > Managed Google Apps.
  3. Search for Seuic OEMConfig and select the app.
  4. Click on Approve.
  5. A pop-up specifying the permissions required by the app will be displayed. Go through it and click Approve.
  6. This will take you to the Approval Settings page. Select a method by which you would handle new app permission requests. You can choose from:
    1. Keep approved when app requests new permissions: Select this to ensure that the app is kept approved in the portal even if new permissions are required. The users will be able to update the app.
    2. Revoke app approval when this app requests new permissions: Select this option to remove the app from the app repository until it is reapproved when it requires new permissions.
  7. On the same pop-up wizard, navigate to the Notifications tab. To subscribe to email notifications when the approved apps request new permissions, enter the email address and click on Add. You can add as many subscribers as you need.
  8. Click on Done.


This will add the app to the Hexnode app repository. Before deploying the OEM configurations to the devices, you have to ensure that Seuic OEMConfig is installed on the devices. You can use the remote action Install Application or the Mandatory App policy to remotely roll out the app to the devices.

Set up Seuic specific configurations

  1. On your Hexnode MDM console, navigate to the Policies tab.
  2. Click on New Policy to create a new policy or edit an existing policy. Provide a policy name and description (Optional) if you are creating a new policy.
  3. Go to Android > App Management > App Configurations.
  4. Click on Configure > + Add new configuration.
  5. Search and select Seuic OEMConfig from the list of apps.
  6. Configure the available settings before saving the policy.

Listed here are some of the basic OEM-specific configurations,
