Endpoint Devices

Under the navigation item Endpoint Devices you will see all the devices stored in the management system (Modern and Classic) with the most important information.

The Last Seen entry in the Properties window of the corresponding device managed by Empirum indicates when the time of the last registration on the server was made. Each time a computer is updated by software or status logs from the agent, that value is updated with the time included in the log.

In addition this table shows the current rollout process of applications on a device, using the following columns:

  • Progress: Shows the percentage progress of installed objects (software) that have been assigned to this device by all active assignment groups and does not include all other objects installed on the device.

By clicking on a device displayed in the list, a preview pane opens up with further information and configuration options, such as Create Assignment, Create Task or apply further Actions under . This also applies to the other navigation buttons under Devices > Mobiles Workstations, Servers, Virtual Machines.
