How to configure the site to automatically create user device affinities

Use the following procedure to enable your Configuration Manager 2012 site to automatically create user device affinities from usage data reported by client devices.

 

To configure the site to automatically create user device affinities

1.       In the Configuration Manager console, click Administration.

2.       In the Administration workspace, click Client Settings.

3.       To modify the default client settings, right-click Default Client Agent Settings then click Properties. To create custom client agent settings, right-click Client Settings, click Create Custom Settings, and then click User and Device Affinity.

4.       Configure the following under User and Device Affinity:

·         Usage based affinity threshold (minutes) - Specify the number of minutes of usage before a user device affinity is created.

·         Usage based affinity threshold (over days) – Specify the number of days over which the usage based affinity threshold is measured.


 Note:

For example, if Usage based affinity threshold (minutes) is specified as 60 minutes and Usage based affinity threshold (over days) is specified at 5 days, the user must use the device for 60 minutes over a period of 5 days to automatically create a user device affinity.

 

·         Usage based threshold notification (minutes) – Specify how often that client computers check and report user device affinity information to the site server.

·         Allow usage data collected from device to define relationship – From the drop-down list, select True to enable the site to automatically create user device affinities. If you select False then an administrative user must approve all user device affinity assignments.

5.       Click OK to close the client settings dialog box.

 

How to import a file that contains user device affinities

You can import a file containing user device affinities to enable you to create many relationships at one time. Users and devices must have been discovered and exist as resources in the Configuration Manager database, otherwise this procedure will fail.

 

Use this procedure to import a file containing user and device affinities to Configuration Manager 2012.

 

To import a file that contains user device affinities

1.       In the Configuration Manager console, click Assets and Compliance.

2.       In the Assets and Compliance workspace, click Users or Devices.

3.       On the Home tab, in the Create group, click Import User Device Affinity.

4.       On the Choose Mapping page of the Import User Device Affinity Wizard, specify the following information:

·         File name – Specify a comma-separated values (.csv) file that contains a list of users and devices you want to create an affinity between. Each user and device pair must be on a separate line separated by a comma. Use the format <user name>,<domain name\device name>.

 Important:

The users and devices listed in the file must already exist as resources in the Configuration Manager database. If they do not exist, the import will fail.

 

·         This file has column headings for reference purposes – If the comma-separated values file has a header line, select this option and the header line will be ignored during the import.

5.       If the file you are importing contains more than two items on each line, you can use the Column and Assign as controls to specify which columns represent users and devices and which columns will be ignored during import.

6.       Click Next and then complete Import User Device Affinity Wizard.
