Assign Endpoint Security Settings in Endpoint Manager

Applies To: WatchGuard EPDR, WatchGuard EDR, WatchGuard EPP

Service Providers can assign security settings profiles to accounts and account groups through Service Provider Endpoint Manager. You can assign settings in the settings profile or you can drag setting profiles to accounts on the Settings page. When you assign a settings profile, it is automatically applied to the All group in the web UI of the target account.

If you do not want to automatically apply the settings profile to the All group, you can send the settings profile to an account or account group. In WatchGuard Endpoint Security, the administrator can assign the settings profile to the appropriate recipients. For more information, see To send an endpoint security settings profile to an account:.

View Assigned Settings

When you assign settings, a number appears next to the profile name to show that it is assigned to an account. This number increases each time you assign the profile to an account.

To view the accounts that a settings profile is assigned to:

  • Point the mouse at the number next to the profile.
    A colored lined connects the profile to the accounts it is assigned to.

If the list of accounts in the left pane shows a black number in the colored line, then there are accounts in the folder with exceptions applied to the settings. For information on inheritance and exceptions, see Settings Ownership and Exceptions in Endpoint Manager.

Unassign an Account from a Security Settings Profile

You can unassign an account or account group from a security settings profile. When you unassign an account or account group, the computers and devices that belong to the account inherit the security settings from the All group or a parent group.

To unassign an account or account group from a profile:

  1. In Service Provider Endpoint Manager, from the top navigation bar, select Settings.
  2. From the left pane, select the settings type for the profile you want to unassign recipients from.
  3. Select the profile from the list.
  4. Click the existing recipients.
    The Recipients page opens.
