    Setting Description

    This custom attribute determines device assignment. Select from among Device Model, Serial Number, and any custom attribute or XML file that is available in the customer OG you are in.


    This operator compares the Attribute to the Value to determine if the device qualifies for the product.

    When using more than one Operator in a rule, you must include a Logical Operator between each Operator.


    When making an assignment rule, comparisons using the less than (<) and greater than (>) operators (and their variants) can only be used to compare numerical values including integers.

    The exception is when you are comparing OEM build versions, you can apply < and > operators on non-numerical ASCII strings. An example is when an OEM update filename includes hyphens, periods, and other characters together with numbers. Such assignment rules must identify a device manufacturer in the rule logic and that comparison is deemed accurate when the format on the device matches the one specified on the server.

    Value All values from all applicable devices are listed here for the Attribute selected for the rule.
    Add Logical Operator Select to display a drop-down menu of logical operators such as AND, OR, NOT, and parentheses. Allows for more complex rules.
  10. Select Save after configuring the logic of the rule.


When a device enrolls with an assigned attribute, the rule assigns the device to the configured organization group.
