Assign Device Users/Groups/Strategies to Devices

The User is the RustDesk User logged in on the device or assigned to the device by clicking Edit next to the device, click in the User box and drop-down to select your user, this will auto assign the group based on the group the user as been assigned to.

This can also be done via the API at command line on deployment or later by calling the RustDesk executable followed by --assign --token <generatedtoken> --user_name <username>. You need to go to Settings → Tokens → Create and create a token with Device permissions first to do this. An example of this on windows would be "C:\Program Files\RustDesk\rustdesk.exe" --assign --token <generatedtoken> --user_name <newuser>.

You can also assign strategy in this way, e.g. --assign --token <generatedtoken> --strategy_name <strategyname>.

The command line on Windows does not have output by default. To get output, please run like this, "C:\Program Files\RustDesk\rustdesk.exe" <arg1> <arg2> ... | more or "C:\Program Files\RustDesk\rustdesk.exe" <arg1> <arg2> ... | Out-String, see here.

  2. In the Device Name Search Field type in the name and click Query or hit Enter.
