Device configuration compliance overview

The steps that you must perform to verify the compliance status of a device and to make a device compliant to a device configuration baseline are as follows:
  1. Create a Baseline — Use the Create Baseline task in the Common Tasks pane to create a device configuration baseline. You can choose to create the baseline from either a configuration file or a reference device.

  2. Associate Devices to a Baseline — Select a baseline and associate it to applicable devices to view the compliance status.

  3. View the compliance status — The Device Compliance Portal displays the compliance summary of all devices associated to the baselines. To view the compliance status of a device to an associated baseline, select the baseline in the Baselines pane. To view the detailed compliance results for each device, double-click the Device Compliance graph or table. Alternatively, you can also select the device in the device tree ( Manage > Devices ), and click the Configuration tab in the right-pane to view the compliance status.
