In the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS), you can assign a profile to a device or a device directory.

Direct and Indirect Assignment of Objects in the IGEL UMS

Objects in the IGEL UMS can be assigned directly or indirectly:

  • Directly assigned objects have been assigned to an individual device or directory.
  • Indirectly assigned objects have been "inherited" via the directory structure.

Whether a profile is assigned directly or indirectly influences the priority of a profile, see Order of Effectiveness of Profiles.

Note also the following:

  • If you assign a profile to a directory, it is indirectly assigned to each device in this directory including the subdirectories.
  • If you subsequently move a device to this directory, the directory profiles will affect this device too.
  • If you remove a device from this directory, the profile will no longer influence this device and the local settings for the device will be restored.

You can assign a profile to a device or a device directory per drag & drop or under Assigned objects in the Profiles or Devices tree nodes.
