Device management with the [email protected] My Devices tab

[email protected] includes a self-service feature that allows device users to manage the device they are currently using, as well as any other devices that they have registered with Ivanti EPMM. The device management actions device users can take in the My Devices tab are generally similar to those available in the Ivanti EPMM User Portal.

The self-service feature is in the My Devices page in [email protected], and includes the following tabs:

  • Actions: Actions a device user can take on the device currently in use, or other devices registered to that user, such as locking, unlocking, wiping, and re-enrolling the device with Ivanti EPMM.
  • Info: Details about the selected device, such as the device model number, OS version, and device registration date.
  • Map: The precise street location of the selected device.

Actions you can take on the current device

In the My Devices tab, you can take the following actions on the device you are currently using:

  • Check for Updates
  • Re-enroll Device
  • Retire Device (only if the device user has the correct permissions to retire a device)

Actions you can take on your other devices

You can also use the My Devices tab to take the following actions on other devices registered to you, even if those devices are not currently at your disposal:

  • Unlock Device
  • Lock Device
  • Retire Device
  • Wipe Device

You can lock, unlock, retire, or wipe one of your devices if you have the relevant roles assigned to you. If you only have one registered device, you cannot unlock, lock, or wipe that device in the My Devices tab.

Device status

The My Devices tab lists all devices registered to the device user who is logged in to [email protected] Each device shows the status of any actions taken on that device.
