Administration Guide

Device Groups

To simplify the process of assigning devices to users, administrators can add devices to a device group and assign the group to multiple users. Once created, the device group is selectable when modifying an existing user or creating a new device user. When the user logs in, they can only view jobs from the devices included in that device group.

Tooltip

Device groups cannot be deleted while in use by any device user.

To create a device group:
  1. Go to System > Device Groups and click Create New.
  2. Enter a group name.
  3. Enter a comment to identify this device group if required.
  4. Select the devices to be included in the device group.
  5. Click Save.
    The device group is now available to select when modifying or creating a new administrator with device user privileges enabled.
Note

Device groups are also used in LDAP/RADIUS wildcard authentication.

See Wildcard Admin Authentication.
