Retiring a device

Updated on December 15th, 2023

This article describes what device retirement means and how you can do it in Miradore.

Device retirement is the last phase of the device lifecycle, and it is used to remove the device from the device registry (Management > Devices page).

What happens when you retire a device:

  • The status of the device changes from active to retired.
  • Device retirement frees up the device's Miradore license.
  • Retirement triggers the unenrollment of the device from Miradore.
  • If there are actions for the device in the queue, all, except the security actions, are canceled.

Android devices managed using the Fully Managed Device (Device Owner) mode of Android Enterprise, will be completely wiped when you retire them from Miradore. Retirement wipes also iOS devices in multi-user mode (enrolled as Shared iPads).

Please note that:

  • You can not edit a retired device, for example, remove tags from the device.
  • Removal history information is not available to the devices deleted from Miradore before May 2019.

If there is a need to reactivate a managed device, you have to re-enroll it to the system. For other devices, there is a Re-activate button on the device form.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
