Configuring Inventory preferences

With version 6 and higher, FileWave integrated Inventory into the main FileWave server. With version 8, FileWave introduced Smart Groups with Inventory queries:


iOS Inventory

These settings only apply to the iOS/iPadOS/tvOS enrolled devices. These devices show up in the normal Clients section of FileWave Admin as well as in the iOS Inventory section. 

  • Device Inventory Poll Interval – Default is 24hrs. This setting is how often all iOS devices will report their profiles, application, security and device settings unless a Verify command is sent.
  • Device Not Checked-In Notification – When an iOS device exceeds the timeframe set, the device color changes to alert the administrator that that device has not checked in with the MDM server.

Smart Groups

The button Refresh all Smart Groups forces a refresh of all the data requested by existing Smart Groups. Smart Groups normally update every 10 minutes, but this can be adjusted here as well. Do not make this much more frequent or you may make your server overly busy. If you have a very large environment you may want to increase this value to perhaps 20 minutes. 

LDAP Custom Fields

If checked this option will clear the value of a LDAP Custom Field if there is no match between client and LDAP user or computer.
