Endpoint policy

EMS now has an Endpoint Policy section for managing endpoint profile assignment. This dedicated policy page makes it simpler to provision endpoints. You can now create and manage endpoint policies to assign profiles and/or Telemetry gateway lists to domains, OUs, and workgroups. You can also create and manage Chromebook policies to assign profiles to Google domains.

To add an endpoint policy for Windows, macOS, and Linux endpoints:
  1. In EMS, go to Endpoint Policy > Manage Policies. Click Add.
  2. In the Endpoint policy name field, enter the desired name.
  3. In the Endpoint domains field, select the desired domain(s) and/or OU(s).
  4. In the Endpoint workgroups field, select the desired workgroup(s).
  5. From the Endpoint profile dropdown list, select the desired profile.
  6. From the Telemetry gateway dropdown list, select the desired Telemetry gateway list.

  7. Save the policy. You can view the new policy on the Endpoint Policy page. You can view all policies on this page, as well as edit existing policies. EMS applies the policy (and its associated profile and Telemetry gateway list) to the selected domain(s), OU(s), and workgroup(s).

To add an endpoint policy for Chromebook endpoints:

You can configure Chromebook policies only if you have enabled EMS for Chromebooks Settings in System Settings > Server.

  1. In EMS, go to Chromebook Policy > Manage Policies. Click Add.
  2. In the Chromebook policy name field, enter the desired name.
  3. In the Google domains field, select the desired Google domain(s).
  4. From the Chromebook profile dropdown list, select the desired Chromebook profile.

  5. Save the policy. You can view the new policy on the Chromebook Policy page. You can view all Chromebook policies on this page, as well as edit existing policies. EMS applies the policy (and its associated profile) to the selected domain(s).
