Device Documents

Click a device name to see its properties, status, relevant content, deployment status, and history. Drill further into device details by using the associated views.

As a BigFix Operator, you can view the Device document. Device document provides information gathered from various devices. If it is a cloud instance, you see data related to cloud as well on this page. To narrow down the search to cloud devices, you can use filters such as BigFix Agent Status (Installed or Not installed) or Managed by (Cloud and which Cloud provider).
