Group Mac devices based on OS version

Hey folks, we want to group our Mac devices based on the OS version. To be clear, we have a requirement where we need to create a grp of post macOS 11 devices and another grp of pre macOS 11 devices. I know there is a dynamic grouping feature in Hexnode but I’m confused how to achieve this. Any help would be appreciated…

    Hey, @pauel. Thank you for reaching out to us.

    Yes, you’re right! We do have the Dynamic Device Grouping feature that you can easily configure to accomplish your requirement.

    To create a dynamic group of all the macOS devices with versions 11 and newer:

    1. Navigate to the Manage tab > Device Groups > New Dynamic Group.
    2. Choose the Condition filter: Device Info > Platform > Is > macOS
    3. Now, click on the + sign to add another Condition filter.
    4. Use the AND logical operator.
    5. Choose the second Condition filter: Operating System > OS Version > Does not contain > 10
    6. Enter an appropriate Group Name & Description for the device group.
    7. Click Save Group.

    To create a dynamic group of all the macOS devices with versions lower than 11:

    1. Navigate to the Manage tab > Device Groups > New Dynamic Group.
    2. Choose the Condition filter: Device Info > Platform > Is > macOS
    3. Now, click on the + sign to add another Condition filter.
    4. Use the AND logical operator.
    5. Choose the second Condition filter: Operating System > OS Version > Contains > 10
    6. Enter an appropriate Group Name & Description for the device group.
    7. Click Save Group.

    Hope this helped! Let us know if you’ve any more queries.

    Cheers!
