Assigning and Unassigning Users to Devices

By Lisa DeGrace

Learn how to assign Users to Devices in Kandji.

Overview

Once you setup a Google Workspace, Azure Active Directory, or SCIM integration, users will automatically be imported into Kandji every 4 hours. Once imported, users can be assigned to devices, allowing you to view all devices assigned to a specific user. You can find more information about syncing users from Google Workspace or Azure Active Directory here.

Assigning a User to a Device

  1. Login to Kandji and click Devices in the navigation menu. 
  2. Click the device you wish to assign to a user. 
  3. Click on the No User next near the User field.
  4. Click the user you wish to assign to this device and click the Assign button. 
  5. The device will now display the user's name inside the user field. 

Notes

Viewing devices assigned to a user

  1. Login to Kandji and click Users in the navigation menu. 
  2. Click on the User in the list to view devices assigned to them.
Archived users or users without device assignments can be viewed in alternate tabs found at the top of the Users section.
