Device Assignments enable you to move devices across organization groups (OG) and user names based on the network Internet protocol (IP) address range or custom attributes. It is an alternative to organizing the content (for example, profiles, apps, policies, and products) by user groups.

Instead of admins manually moving devices between OGs, you can direct the console to move devices automatically when it connects to Wi-Fi that you define. You can also move devices based on custom attribute rules that you define.

A typical use case for device assignments is a user who regularly changes roles and requires specialized profiles and applications for each role.

You must choose between implementing User Groups and Device Assignments to move devices since AirWatch does not support both functions on the same device.
