Computer Users

Computer Users section allows you to manage Users and User Groups. You can pair a user with a device in order to synchronize some user-specific settings. We recommend that you synchronize Users with Active Directory first. Upon creation of a new computer, you can pair the computer with a specific user. You can then search for the user to view details about computers assigned to them and their activity.

You can also manage Users and User Groups for the purpose of iOS Mobile Device Management with the use of policies assigned to iOS devices. You can modify users or add Custom Attributes.
