Finding Devices and Users in Fleet
GoGuardian Fleet provides a range of options to help you find users and devices in your organization. Fleet also includes options to help you find collections of users or devices based on their shared attributes, such as how many devices are assigned to a user or which devices are assigned to specific locations.
When you enter a term into the Search bar, Fleet will search in the following fields:
- Serial Number
- Asset ID
- Assigned User
- MAC Address
You will need to enter at least three characters to search. That 3+ character search string will provide results if it appears anywhere in a field.
For example, if you wanted to find a device with the serial number of 171009, you could search for . Similarly, if you wanted to find all of the devices that had been assigned to Marky J, you could search for them with the string [Mar] or even [ark], and every device, user, username, and serial number that included the string [ark] would be shown.
Note: Your search string is not limited to three characters.
Adding a Filter
You can apply filters to the items that appear in Fleet in two ways:
- By using one or more of the three filtering options for each column header. These allow you to filter by:
Clicking one of the filter icons on the specified column header will allow an admin to filter devices based on any value that exists for those columns within Fleet.
- By searching for something, and then clicking on one of the results (more rare case where asset IDs or Serial Numbers may have a similar convention and partial asset IDs are searched :
Removing Filters and Search Terms
A. Clear a specific column-based filter by clicking the filter icon to the right of the specified column and then clicking the Reset link. This will remove this filter from the resulting listed devices.
B. Clear a specific search term by clicking the x to the right of the specified term. (Terms can stack)
C. Clear all filters and searches by clicking the button under the search bar Clear Filters and Sorters
Each time a filter is removed, Fleet effectively “steps back” from the last executed search, allowing you to pivot into different searches and sub-searches.
For example, if you wanted to see all of the devices attributed to email@example.com
that are also in El Segundo, but clicked on the [Location: At the car wash] filter by mistake, you could modify or remove the [Location: At the car wash] filter without changing the [User: firstname.lastname@example.org] filter.
You can sort devices in Fleet by clicking on the header of the column you want to sort by. Click once on a column header to sort devices by that field in ascending order, and click again to sort in descending order.
For example, clicking on the User column header once will sort devices in ascending order, and clicking again will sort devices in descending order.
