When your device connects to Wi-Fi while managed by Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch, the device authenticates and automatically installs profiles, apps, policies, and product provisions specific to the OG that you select.

You can also define rules based on custom attributes. When a device enrolls with an assigned attribute, the rule assigns the device to the configured organization group. The device can also be assigned in the case where the device receives a product provision containing a qualifying custom attribute.

Device assignments can only be configured at a child organization group.


  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > Groups > Organization Groups > Network Ranges.
    The Network Ranges option is not visible until you enable device assignments. So if you cannot find 'Network Ranges' in the Organization Groups navigation path, see Enable Device Assignments.
  2. To add a single Internet protocol (IP) address range, select Add Network Range. In the Add/Edit Network Range page, complete the following settings and then select Save.
    Table 1. Add Network Range
    Setting Description
    Start IP Address Enter the top end of the network range.
    End IP Address Enter the bottom end of the network range.
    Organization Group Name Enter the OG name to which devices move when the network range is entered. This setting is only visible if the network assignment Type is 'Organization Group By IP Range.'
    User name Enter the user name to whom devices register when the network range is entered. This setting is only visible if the network assignment Type is 'User name by IP Range.'
    Description Optionally, add a helpful description of the network range.
    Overlapping network ranges results in the message, "Save Failed, Network Range exists."
  3. If you have several network ranges to add, you can optionally select Batch Import to save time.
    1. On the Batch Import page, select the Download template for this batch type link to view and download the bulk import template in CSV format.
    2. Open the CSV file. The CSV file features several columns corresponding to the options on the Add Network Range screen. Enter the organization Group ID in the "OrganisationGroup" column instead of organization group name.
      Note: You can identify the Group ID of any organization group by 1) moving to the OG you want to identify and 2) hovering your pointer over the OG label which displays a popup that contains the Group ID.

      Note: A CSV file (comma-separated values) is simply a text file whose extension has been changed from "TXT" to "CSV". It stores tabular data (text and numbers) in plain text. Each line or row of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas. It can be opened and edited with any text editor. It can also be opened and edited with Microsoft Excel.
    3. When you open the CSV template, notice that sample data has been added to each column in the template. The sample data is presented to inform you what kind of data is required and what format it must be in. Do not stray from the format presented by the sample data. Complete this template by filling in each of the required columns for each network range you want to add.
    4. Import the completed template using the Batch Import page.
    5. Select Save.
    The screenshot shows the Batch Import screen for the Network Range option.
