Miradore Business policy is a feature, which allows administrators to automate the deployment of apps, configuration profiles, files and certificates. This article explains the basic rules related to the deployment and how to monitor the deployment status.
Good to know about the deployment
The business policy deploys the items (applications, configuration profiles, files, and certificates) to the applicable devices when they connect to the Miradore server. The administrator can also speed up the deployment with Sync now -action on the Business policy page. This will sync all the devices in the scope of the policy.
Sometimes it might seem that there is a delay in a business policy deployment. There are some rules behind the deployment logic that are good to know:
- Already installed or distributed item of a policy, like, an application or a configuration profile, does not get deployed again to the device.
- The business policy item with status Queued, Waiting, In progress, or Postponed, is not deployed again.
- When the deployment of a policy item has failed over 5 times, it is not deployed again. You can reset the deployment from the Business policy page with the action Retry failed deployments.
- If the deployment fails or gets canceled, the deployment gets postponed until two hours.
How to see the deployment status
From the Action log, you can follow the statuses for all the deployments of your site. The Device page has also the Action log tab, where you can see the deployment status for an individual device. Each deployment action will have its own row in the log.
The best overall status of the policy deployment you can see from the Business policy page. There are two tabs, Deployments and Devices, which gives you various information about the deployments for the devices in the scope of the business policy.
