Use device groups and smart device groups

Device groups streamline the management of a large number of devices, allowing you to manage them as a group. Not that a device group does not create device trust policy between them. See Configure Device Trust.

There are two types of device groups:

  • Standard – Create standard device groups to manage the devices in them manually. See Create standard device groups.
  • Smart – Use Smart Device Groups to greatly simplify the creation and management of large groups of devices. Dynamically add devices to a group by defining rules to create a Smart Device Group. Rules can match criteria such as organizational hierarchy, geographic location, or network domain. When you create a Smart Device Group, any new devices that match the rules you defined are added to the group automatically. See Manage devices dynamically with Smart Device Groups.
