Getting Started with Devices

This section contains the following topics:

Each entry in the Devices page represents a mobile device that has been registered with Ivanti Neurons for MDM and lists important information about the device. The Devices list page displays devices with information such as:

  • Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone #
  • OS
  • Device Type
  • Status
  • Last Check-In
  • Violation Count
  • Space
  • Legal Owner (for Shared iPads)

The Wi-Fi IP address is reported to the Ivanti Neurons for MDM server. Any changes to IP address is reported at every check-in. GDPR-compliant IP address is available as an option in the device list page and in the device details page. This feature requires devices to be registered via Go 5.5 for iOS or later versions, and Go 72 or later versions for Android as supported by Ivanti Neurons for MDM.

As new GDPR fields (such as IP Address and eSIM ID) are added over Ivanti Neurons for MDM releases, the admins who have configured GDPR already need to edit the GDPR profile if they want to hide the new fields.

The equipment identifier (EID) shows up as an iOS attribute when a device list is exported to spreadsheet (CSV) format. The EID and mobile EID (MEID) (when present) are prefixed by an EID string or MEID string, respectively.

The Ivanti Neurons for MDM server cannot handle processing the same device with different client identifiers and registered across different tenants. The server can only handle the instance where it is the same device with different client identifiers and registered to the same tenant.
