Getting Started with Dynamic Group and Automation in Hexnode

Automation is one of the robust features in an MDM that will help you manage your devices with ease. With automation, you can reduce the time and effort you put to make things happen in your device management solution. Hexnode offers a range of automated features ranging from device enrollment to scheduling device reports.

Dynamic Groups

Unlike custom device groups, the movement of devices in and out of the dynamic device group is based on certain criteria. For example, consider a dynamic group of all compliant devices, all these devices which satisfies the criteria will get automatically added to the group, if any of those member devices loose compliance they will be removed from the group in the next periodic sync. This sufficiency of minimal manual effort makes dynamic grouping more desirable than manual grouping.

Merits

  • Automatic sorting of devices to groups.
  • Automatic association of policies based on specified criteria.

Pre-approved enrollment

You can enroll your Android or iOS device in Hexnode via the pre-approved enrollment. This is a method to pre-configure Hexnode policies to the device prior to actual device enrollment initiation. This way, when a device gets enrolled, policies will get attached to devices immediately after the rollout.

Note:


Pre-approved enrollment is not an automated enrollment procedure. But once enrolled, the policies automatically take effect on the devices. You have to follow the iOS or Android enrollment procedure to complete the enrollment process.
