This article discusses managing your registered roaming client entries for computers which are no longer active in your organization.
Deleting roaming clients from the Umbrella dashboard is a great way to clean up old clients. Deleting a client from the dashboard will not uninstall the client. Deleting an active client will cause the client to automatically re-register at next start and re-appear safely on the dashboard. Note, policies attributed to roaming computers will need to be re-applied after re-registration.
Soon, this process can be configured to occur automatically.
Step 1: Select
The first step in bulk deleting roaming clients by last sync filter is filter by the last sync date desired. Show only clients which have not synced within that time.
Step 2: Delete
Above, the "DeleteMe" tag was just added to all machines that are targeted for removal from the Umbrella dashboard. To continue deleting these clients from the dashboard:
- Use the delete button to remove these registrations from the dashboard.
- The deletion process can take up to an hour based on current activity and size of the deletion action
- Note, any currently active clients will re-register on their next startup.
That's it! You have now successfully removed your roaming clients which have been inactive for your desired length of time.
Coming soon: Auto delete
We are excited to be introducing an automatic deletion function where clients which have not synced into the dashboard within a set period of time will be eligible for automatic deletion from the dashboard. For early access to this setting please contact Umbrella support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
