    How to change a setting on multiple devices?

    Use Apply setting (CSV) to apply a setting to multiple systems.

    An example use for this feature is to update the ACEmanager password on your devices and give each one a unique value. You can download a list of systems, populate a new, unique ACEmanager password for each one, and have AirVantage update each device the next time they check in.

    Apply setting (CSV) uses the .csv download/upload method used for system configuration throughout AirVantage. After selecting the systems (all with the same device type and firmware) and then selecting the setting you want to change for all of them, you create a .csv file, upload it and then apply it to change the setting on several systems at once. It is important to remember that you must select a firmware revision as a baseline for the systems you will update. This means that if you have a mix of device types in your fleet, you will need to update each group individually.

    To start

    1. Go to Monitor > Systems
    2. Under the More button, select Apply setting (CSV).

    The Apply setting (CSV) window appears.

    Generate, download, and upload a template

    1. Select an Identifier for the systems: Name, Serial Number, or IMEI, for example. The identifier will populate the first column of your template.
    2. Select the Setting you want to change for each system:
      • Select the application; that is, the device and software: ALEOS MP70 (4.12.0), for example. You can only change settings on identical systems.
      • Select the setting you want to change.
    3. Click Generate.
    4. After the template generates, click Download your template…
    5. Edit your downloaded .csv file to add the new value(s) for the setting you want to apply to each system.
    6. Save your template.
    7. Click Select a CSV…, browse to your template file and then click Open.

    Apply the setting

    1. Select Reboot the systems upon completion if you want each system to be rebooted after template application.
    2. If needed, use the Advanced settings to set a Scheduling and Timeout.
    3. Click Apply setting (CSV).

    An operation is created, you can follow the progress from the Operations list. For each system, at the next heartbeat, the setting will be configured, overwriting the previous value.
