Devices and OUs

In the Devices section of the Scout Board, you can map the structures of your organization and manage the devices within organizational units (OUs). The OU structure makes it easier for you to both configure and manage your devices.

Alternatively, you can assign commands, schedules and other functions to selected devices in the All devices or Dynamic Device Groups views.

So, within the OU structure, inheritance applies by default: applications – or more precisely application definitions – are inherited by subordinate OUs. Device configurations are inherited down to the device level. When a new device is added to an OU, it automatically receives the application definitions and configuration of this OU.
