Computer Precedence Options, Device Control

Device Control establishes precedence rules for computer and computer group default option settings.

The computers options precedence rules are as follows:

  1. An option value set for a specific computer supersedes all other option settings.

    Important: You must add computers to an existing domain or workgroup shown in the Machine-specific settings hierarchy of the Device Explorer module.

  2. If no value is explicitly set for the computer, the global default option setting in the Computer tab applies.

  3. If no global default option setting is defined for an option, the predefined Ivanti Device and Application Control system default settings apply.

The following flowchart outlines the computer options precedence rules process:

Is a specific machine option set? Yes = use the machine's value; No = Is a default machine option set? Yes = use the default value; No = Use the installation value
