Summary

Assigning Location to devices within your organization.

Overview

Tachyon Explorer allows you to use Location when defining coverage for an instruction. For example, you can choose to target an instruction to be sent only to devices whose location has been set. Location is an attribute of a device that you can set define for its importance within your organization. You must agree the criteria for importance within your organization, and ensure all Tachyon users have the same understanding of criticality and how they are expected to use it. 

Location is currently displayed in the following pages in the Tachyon Portal:

Setting Location

Location is set using the instruction Set the location of my devices to <location> where <location is entered as free-form text up to 99 characters.

In Tachyon Explorer, type the instruction name, enter the desired location, select the coverage for the instruction, and then submit the instruction. After approval, devices which match the specified coverage value will have their location set to the specified value, and responses will report the old and new location.

Any devices that do not have their location set are reported as blank.

There is a corresponding instruction Get the location of my devices
