Hexnode MDM lets you import your Active Directory into it and apply policies straight to the existing users, groups or organizational unit (OU).
Applying Policies on AD Groups
Once you have synced your Active Directories with Hexnode MDM, you can apply policies on the existing user groups, organizational units or the entire domain.
Let’s start by creating a policy,
- Select Policies > New Policy > Wallpaper. Click on Configure. Upload an image of specified size for wallpaper.
- Navigate to Policy Targets > Domains. Click on +Add Domain. You can see your domains listed here. For any domain, click on the arrow next to it to expand. Here, you can select multiple OUs or the entire domain. After selection, click on OK.
- Next, select User Groups. Click on +Add User Group. You can see all your AD user groups listed in here. Select the desired user groups and click on OK.
- You have now successfully set your AD groups and OUs as policy targets. On clicking Save, the wallpaper policy you have configured will be active on all the targets you have selected.
AD based Remote Device Management
Hexnode MDM lets you perform remote actions such as lock device, remote ring, install application, enable/disable kiosk mode, enable/disable lost mode, enable/disable personal hotspot and so on, on the devices linked to your AD groups.
You can see all your AD domains listed here. Click on the arrow adjacent to any domain. It will expand to show the OUs within. Now you can select multiple OUs or the domain as a whole.
Make your selection and click on Manage. Here we have multiple options. Clicking on any of them performs the corresponding actions in bulk on the groups, OUs or domains selected.
