Device Groups

What is a Device Group

Device Groups are used to manage the list of devices a user can access. As the User is bound directly to the Device Group, any changes to the Device Group membership are immediately applied to the user or API token.
From the User's perspective, it's like other devices in the workgroup simply do not exist.

Where and How to Manage

[ADMIN] > [WORKGROUP] > [DEVICE GROUPS]

Create a Device Group

To move a device from the Available list to the Selected list simply click-select that device. Repeat the same action to remove devices from the Selected device list.

Selected

Those devices to which you would like to apply the membership conditions

Available

Those devices available for selection, but not selected and the membership conditions will not apply.

Membership Conditions

Device Groups are created based on one of three membership conditions:
  • In
  • Not in
  • Metadata
  • Source restricted

In

This is a strict list of devices. Membership of this list will not change without deliberately taking action to update the member list.

Not in

This membership condition is used to deny access to a strict list of devices. Membership of the list will update automatically and new devices will become members of the group. Action is required to remove devices from the member list.

Metadata

This is the most flexible membership condition. Using specific metadata keys, membership is governed by the value of those keys. This creates a fluid group membership that can be updated dynamically by changing a Device's metadata.

Source restricted

Like "IN", his is a strict list of devices. Membership of this list will not change without deliberately taking action to update the member list.
For each device in the selected list, optional source restrictions can be applied. By default, all sources are accessible. Simply click the source names to add/remove them to the list of selected sources. Only the selected sources will be visible to any users bound to this device group.
