Groups

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Group option helps you to add a group, add devices to the group, and assign a policy to the group. The policies and configurations applied to a group are applied automatically to all the devices that belong to that group. You must create a group and add devices to that group to apply the same restrictions on all the devices. When you create a new device, a default group is created, and the default policy is also applied to the user.

Group QR Code

The Group QR Code option provides the facility to enroll multiple Android or iOS devices of any group in a single instance. The devices enrolled using Group QR Code option are added to the Seqrite mSuite console as per the group name with incremental numbering. For example; if the group name is QR Group, the devices added to the Seqrite mSuite console will have the nomenclature as QR Group-1, QR Group-2 and so on.

To enroll the devices using Group QR Code, a group owner must be assigned, who will receive all the information about the QR code via email. Other than the group owner, you can also send this QR code details to any other user as well. When the device user scans the QR code created for a group, the device will be assigned to that group and the policy applied to the group will be automatically applied to the device on approval. The validity of generated QR Code can be set to 30, 60, or 90 days.

Note:
When generating the QR code, by default, the Auto Approval check box is not selected on the Seqrite mSuite console. If it is selected, then after scanning the QR code, all the devices of a group will be automatically approved.
