Is anyone using Airwatch to manage your Surface Hubs?

I'm curious how you've written your custom SyncML, for something as simple as setting the Edge browser home page.  I'm not finding much online on how to make that happen so hoping someone here has some experience.

We have had our Hubs in Airwatch for a while, but have not had any success getting anything pushed to the Hubs, we are in the process of updating our Airwatch client which possibly has more features and lines up better with Surface Hubs, I will follow up if we find out how use the Sync ML stuff. Would appreciate others doing the same with what they find!

After a lot of digging and trial and error I was able to change the browser home page!  Baby steps!  Here's the code I used - you need to create a policy and put it in your custom payload.
