Click 'Devices' > 'Device List'

  • Endpoint Manager lets you you assign device ownership from one user to another, belonging to the same customer or a different customer.

  • You can also add a device to a new device group or remove the device from a group at any time.

  • The configuration templates applied to a device because of the user / user group and the device group are also changed if you change the device ownership and group membership.

Use the links to jump to the task you need help with:

Change the owner of a device

  • Login to ITarian

  • Click 'Applications' > 'Endpoint Manager'

  • Click the 'Devices' tab on the left and choose 'Device List'

  • Click the 'Device Management' tab at the top of the main configuration pane

    • Select a company or a group to view their devices
      Or

    • Select 'Show all' on the left to view every device enrolled to EM

  • Click the name of the device whose ownership is to be changed.

The 'Device Details' interface opens.

  • Click 'Owner' from the options at the top or click 'More' and choose 'Owner' from the drop-down

  • Select 'Change Owner' from the options

  • Start typing the first few characters of the name of the new user to whom the device is to be assigned and choose the user from the options

 

The ownership of the device is changed to the new user.

  • The configuration profiles in effect on the device, associated with the previous user and the user group to which the previous user is a member, are removed

  • The profiles, pertaining to the new user and the user group to which the new user is a member, are applied to the device.

    • See this wiki if you need help on configuration profiles associated with users and user groups.

  • If you change the user from a different customer organization, the device is also removed from its existing device group(s) and placed into the default group of the new customer.

  • The profiles active on the device are also accordingly changed.

Change the group membership of a device

  • Device groups make it easy to manage large numbers of Android, iOS, Mac, Windows or Linux devices.

  • You can add a single device to any number of groups belonging to the same company

  • The configuration profiles assigned to a device group are applied to all devices in the group, depending on their operating systems

  • If a device belongs to multiple groups, then all group profiles are applied to the device. If the settings in one profile clash with those of another then EM applies the more restrictive of the two settings. For example, if one profile allows the use of the camera and another blocks it, then the device cannot use the camera.

  • You can add a device to a new group or remove a device from a group at anytime.

  • There are two ways to manage group membership of a device:

    • Device Management - Change the group membership of a selected device from the device details interface

    • Group Management - Add or remove devices to a selected group

Device management

  • Repeat the process to add the device to other groups.

The device is added to the group or groups. Any profiles assigned to the group(s) are applied to the device.
