Managing targets

A target list contains all the devices to which the deployment is to be assigned. This node provides access to the members of the selected list and their respective information. If the target list is defined by a subnet mask, this list will be filled in dynamically and the devices will add themselves once they are booted. By default this list is updated every 4 minutes.

The table of the target list's node displays the following information:
