Menu path: UMS Web App > Devices

Device changes made in the UMS Console are immediately available in the UMS Web App, and vice versa.

In the Devices area, you can manage devices registered on the UMS Server. All devices registered on the UMS Server are shown.

You can structure the Devices area by creating directories and subdirectories. When doing so, you should bear in mind that each device can only be stored in a single directory. 

Avoid placing too many devices in one folder, see Performance Optimizations.
