Policy by Device Model

A Policy enables you to manage a group of devices (of the same model) with a single configuration and software level, simplifying the management of a large group of devices.
There is a single policy for each device model associated with the open account, along with basic policy information. To view or modify a policy (Manage > Policy > Device Model), simply select the Device Model Policy and view or adjust the settings as needed.
Note: When a new device is onboarded, it will be automatically added to the Policy for that Device Model. If there is no Policy for that Device Model, Poly Lens will create one.

For detailed information on managing the following lists, see List Managment.

You can manage device parameters, including those that are not available in the Poly Lens interface, in the CSV file and import the file back into Poly Lens.

  1. Select Manage > Policy > Device Model.

  3. All the device information on the Account is exported to a zipped CSV file.
