Doubt about assign devices in setup package


I have created a setup package (without data download, only jre,db,app). I've created in "Software Package Management" menu. There is a tab to assing devices, what is the difference between assing devices or not?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards.

You dont need to create new setup package for new users. The same setup package can be assigned to various devices which in turn are used by various users.

There is a difference between assigning setup package to device which is already synchronized and assigning devices to setup package.

In case of assigning devices to setup package, ideally there will be devices(logical devices created) which are created automatically with pre-assigned users based on some Backend logic. So if there is also data associated to these devices based on device criteria like User then the data will also be kept ready. So when a actual pyhsical device synchronizes, it gets application and data during initial sychronization itself.

So in cases where you dont want to create devices before synchronization then you dont have to assign devices to setup packages.
