Devices / OU structure

The OU structure is organized hierarchically and may reflect the structure of your organization. OUs can contain devices at each level, but also other OUs. An OU can represent a site with its devices or group devices with the same details.

The advantage of having a hierarchical structure is that properties such as the device configuration and applications can be inherited from top to bottom.Actions can be applied to all devices in an OU, optionally including all devices in subordinate OUs, in one step. This applies, for example, to a command like Restart.
