Creating a rule for device automatic allocating to administration groups

18 March 2024

ID 89691

You can centrally administer the settings of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android app installed on users' mobile devices only if the devices belong to a previously created administration group for which a group policy has been configured.

If the rule to automatically allocate mobile devices detected on the network to the administration group is not configured, during the first synchronization of the device with the Administration Server, the device is automatically sent to the Administration Console in the AdvancedDevice discoveryDomainsKES10 folder (KES10 is used by default). A group policy does not apply to this device.

To create the rule for automatic allocating of mobile devices to administration group, follow the steps below:

  1. In the console tree, select the Unassigned devices folder.
  2. From the context menu of the Unassigned devices folder, select Properties.

    The Properties: Unassigned devices window appears.

  3. In the Move devices section, click Add to start the process of creating a rule for automatically allocating devices to an administration group.

    The New rule window appears.

  4. Type the rule name.
  5. Specify the administration group to which mobile devices should be allocated after the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android mobile app has been installed on them. To do so, click Browse to the right of the Group to move devices to field and select the group in the window that appears.
  6. In the Rule application section, select Run once for each device.
  7. Select the Move only devices not added to administration groups check box to prevent allocating to the selected group the mobile devices that were allocated to other administration groups when applying the rule.
  8. Select the Enable rule check box, so that the rule can be applied to newly detected devices.
  9. Open the Apps section and do the following:
    1. Select the Operating system version check box.
    2. Select one or several types of operating systems of the devices to be allocated to the specified group: Android or iOS.
  10. Click OK.

The newly created rule is displayed in the list of device allocation rules in the Move devices section in the properties window of the Unassigned devices folder.

According to the rule, Kaspersky Security Center allocates all devices that meet the specified requirements from the Unassigned devices folder to the selected group. The mobile devices which were earlier allocated to the Unassigned devices folder can also be allocated to the required administration group of the Managed devices folder manually. For more detailed information on administration groups management and actions with undistributed devices, see Kaspersky Security Center Help.
