After creating queries and investigating devices and their adherence to policies, you can perform actions on a single selected device or in bulk on selected devices:

  1. In the Devices screen, select one or multiple device checkboxes. When at least one device is selected, the Actions button will be displayed above the query results table.
  2. To peform an action, click Actions and then click the desired action.

Axonius supports the following device actions:

Tag

Apply new or existing tags to the selected devices. The list of selected tags will be applied on all selected devices. Hence, tagging may result in the removal of existing tags from one or from several of the selected devices.

  • Partial tag indicator is displayed when some but not all of the selected devices are tagged.
  • New, checked, partial and unchecked tags are sorted and displayed in different sections. Displayed from top to bottom are: newly created tags, checked tags, partial tags, and unchecked tags.
  • "New" indicator is displayed when adding new tags.

Delete

Delete selected devices from Axonius. Deleted devices may be added again to Axonius if they are discovered in any future discovery cycle.

Link Devices

Manually correlate at least two device records and consolidate their details into a single device.

NOTE

Manual linkage cannot be reverted. It will not be overridden by the next correlation

Unlink Devices

Unlink and break the different device adapter sources into several separate devices, with each individual entry referring to data received from a single adapter. For example, if a device has been correlated from three different adapters, unlinking that device will result in three different unlinked devices.

NOTE

Any manually unlinked devices may be relinked the next time the Axonius has correlated devices as part of a discovery cycle or data fetch from a specific adapter connection, if the correlation logic determines to do so.

Enforce - Create New Enforcement

Create a new enforcement set from the Devices page with a Main Action that will run on the entities you have selected ('custom selection').
When select this option, a drawer is opened that lets you configure the following:

  1. Enforcement set name
  2. Main Action - Select an action from the Action Library, to be performed when the enforcement set is executed.

Once configured, click Save and Run to save the enforcement set and to generate an enforcement task that will run on the entities you have selected ('custom selection').

For more details, see Creating New Enforcement Sets.

Enforce - Use Existing Enforcement

Select and run one of the enforcement sets that have already been configured.
For more details, see Enforcement Center Page

Filter out from query results

Filter out the selected devices from the query results. Once filtered out, the Query Wizard will add a new Filtered out from query result line. Click Clear to remove the filtered out devices.

Add Custom Data

Add custom data to the device using one or more custom fields:

  • To add any of the predefined fields, click Add Predefined Field, select the field name and provide the field value. If the field already exists as custom data for the device, its value will be overridden.

    NOTE
    The Predefined Field dropdown list displays either custom fields or string fields that are not list type (e.g. software name) and not an object type.

  • To define a new custom field click Add New Field, select the field data type (string, float, integer, boolean) and provide the field name. If the field already exists, you will get an error message.

  • To save and add the custom data to the device information, click Save.

  • You can view the custom data in the Device Profile. A 'Custom Data' adapter will be listed under the Adapter Connections tab.
    You can also use the Query Wizard for query for custom data.
