Assign a Settings Profile

Applies To: WatchGuard Advanced EPDR, WatchGuard EPDR, WatchGuard EDR, WatchGuard EPP, WatchGuard EDR Core

After you create a settings profile, you assign it to one or more computers or computer groups. You can assign only one profile of each type. For example, you can only assign one Per-Computer Settings profile to a computer or group.

You can assign settings profiles manually (directly) or automatically through inheritance from a group to subgroups, computers, and devices. For information on inheritance, see Settings Inheritance in Subscriber Accounts.

When you assign a settings profile, WatchGuard Endpoint Security applies the security settings immediately to all of the computers and devices in the group. To delay the application of the settings, you can disable real-time communication between WatchGuard Cloud and the endpoint software. For more information, see Disable Real-time Communication.

Assign Settings Profiles Manually

After you create a settings profile, there are many ways to manually assign it. See the appropriate section below.

To assign settings profiles to WatchGuard Cloud account groups, see Multi-Tenant Management — Assign Endpoint Security Settings to Managed Accounts.
