Force Apple ID to sync to iCloud?

I have searched but did not find the answer.  I am new to Workspace ONE/Airwatch.  Is there a way to force a users Apple ID to backup certain items to their iCloud?  We block the iCloud backup feature but they do have the availability to backup things to the cloud.  I would like to force their photos, text messages and notes to backup to iCloud through Workspace ONE.

I don't think it is possible to force this, especially because you are depending on the user being succesfully logged into icloud. And that there is enough storage available in the iCloud account.

Another approach is parsing the sync status from the ~/Library/Preferences/MobileMeAccounts.plist file and putting the value in a custom attribute so you can monitor if a user has your options enabled. I have not used this myself but my best guess is the MobileMeAccounts.plist file.
