Device Groups

The purpose of grouping devices is to manage them by applying configurations and policies in
bulk.

The device group is a collection of devices which share some logical behavior.

Generally, devices/users are grouped based on the department, type of device or any other
parameters of the device. A device can be associated to multiple groups. When you apply multiple
policies to a device, then the most restrictive settings of all the policies will get applied.
