Device groups allow users to group and organize devices based on device functionality. Before creating a device group, identify the unique characteristics that distinguish a device group from other devices in the network.

Device groups enable the following capabilities:

  • Manage multiple devices simultaneously instead of performing actions on individual devices.
  • Manage standard configuration settings across multiple devices with similar functionality.

For example, create a device group with a specific authentication configuration. Assign devices to that group and push a configuration change to the device group. All of the devices assigned to that device group are reconfigured.
