  2. Select the Groups tab. This lists all the groups are listed here.
  3. Click on the ellipsis icon present under the Action tab given against the group, to which you want to associate the profile. Click on Associate Profile. To distribute profiles to multiple groups, select the groups and click on the Associate Profile button.
  4. All the created profiles are listed under Available Profiles. Chooses the profiles you want to associate to the group(s) and click on Select to associate the selected profiles to the groups.

If a profile is associated to a group, the profile is automatically associated to all the devices of the particular platform present in the group. Similarly, if any device, to which a profile has been associated is removed from the group, the installed profile is removed automatically.

Disassociating Profiles from Groups

When you disassociate a profile from the group all the restrictions/configurations applied using that profile is reverted on the devices. You can disassociate a profile from the groups by following the steps mentioned below:

  1. On the MDM Server, navigate to Groups and Devices
  2. Select the Groups tab. This lists all the created groups.
  3. Select the group, from which the profile is to be removed.
  4. Click on the red cross icon present against the group, under the Action tab to disassociate the profile.

Moving device between groups

Moving a device from one group to another, removes all the existing group-based profiles/apps associated to the device. Then the device gets associated with all the relevant profiles/apps present in the new group. For example, if you are moving a device from a group having 3 profiles to a group having 2 profiles, then the 3 profiles of the first group is removed and then the 2 new profiles get associated to the device.

  1. On the MDM Server, navigate to Groups and Devices, under Device Management.
  2. Select the Devices tab. This lists all the enrolled devices.
  3. Select the device to be moved and click on Move to Group.
  4. Select the group(s) to which the device must be moved to and click on Select. The device moves to the selected group(s).
