EMS Administration Guide

Managing deployment configuration priority levels

An endpoint may be eligible for multiple deployment configurations. When an endpoint is eligible for multiple endpoint deployment configurations, two factors determine which configuration EMS applies to the endpoint:

  1. EMS applies deployment configurations to endpoints only if the configurations are enabled on the Deployment > Manage Deployment page.
  2. If an endpoint is eligible for multiple enabled configurations, EMS applies the configuration with the first priority level to the endpoint.
To change configuration priority levels:
  1. Go to Deployment > Manage Deployment.
  2. Click Change Priority.
  3. Click and hold the configuration, then drag to the desired position.

In the example, consider an endpoint that belongs to the Legacy group. The endpoint applies for two configurations. In this case, EMS applies the HQ 6.2.6 deployment configuration to the endpoint, since the HQ 6.2.6 configuration has a higher priority level than the Legacy configuration.

However, if you disable the HQ 6.2.6 configuration, EMS applies the Legacy deployment configuration to the endpoint in the Legacy group.

You can reenable the HQ 6.2.6 rule, then change the configuration priority levels so that the Legacy configuration has priority level 1. In this case, EMS applies the Legacy configuration to the endpoint.
