Assigning policies to devices or groups
Updated over a week ago

Policy management can help organizations ensure their devices are configured and used consistently and securely. It can also simplify deploying and managing software and updates across many devices.

Click on Policy Management > Create new policy

Choose from compliance-required policies on the left side or start from scratch.

When selecting a recommended policy, choose macOS, Windows, or Both on a policy template.

If you choose "New policy from scratch", choose the policy you want to add.

Input the policy name, description, and conditions you want to add to the policy and click "Continue".

  • Note, that the "—" sign will set the value to null ("unset" option) because there are some boolean fields that have an "unset" option.

    • If a boolean field is not required, the input will have 3 options "unset", "true", and "false".

    • If a boolean field has a null default value, you will see the "—" sign as the default option.

    • Otherwise, if a boolean field is required, it will only have 2 options "true" and "false".

Add the devices on which the policy will be installed and click "Continue" or you can choose device groups in the next step.

You can also choose device groups to assign to.

Review the details and click Back to edit if needed. Otherwise, click Finish to deploy the policy to the devices selected.

Congratulations! You have set up your first device security policy on Swif!
