26 – Organize the fleet to quickly identify devices

The ability to quickly identify and interact with specific devices gives you the agility to troubleshoot and potentially isolate devices in case you encounter operational challenges. When operating large-scale device fleets, you need to deploy ways to organize, index, and categorize them. This is useful when targeting new device software with updates and when you need to identify why some devices in your fleet behave differently than others.

Follow the best practices and check if your workload is well-architected.

ID Priority Best Practice
BP 26.1 Required Provision devices into predefined hierarchies
BP 26.2 Recommended Use static and dynamic device hierarchies to support fleet operations
BP 26.3 Recommended Use index and search services to enable rapid identification of target devices
