Effective January 30, 2018 this app has been retired by Cireson.

Our Vision
At Cireson, we are passionate about System Center and are constantly innovating to bring you cutting edge solutions to maximize your investment and help you #domore with Microsoft. With this vision, we want to ensure that all companies utilizing Microsoft Configuration Manager have the most productive and consumer friendly solution on the market to achieve maximum success.

Why We’re Doing This
Our goal has always been to give the community what they need and want. Over the years, we have released numerous free apps for the community to help maximize Configuration Manager. We’ve found that the community needs to #domore. Administrators need to be able to securely delegate tasks to Support teams, to free-up time and resources to focus on higher priority IT initiatives. Support teams need easy access to common remote troubleshooting functionality and data within SCCM in order to increase customer satisfaction with first-call resolution.

As we are dedicated to providing solutions that our customers need, and with these objectives in mind, we have decided to retire this app, effective January 30, 2018. The functionality you know and love has been enhanced and integrated into the new True Control Center to provide you with a complete web-based solution for your Support needs.

What This Means for You
If you have previously downloaded this app, you may continue to use it. However, effective January 30, 2018, Cireson will no longer provide future feature updates, security patches, or support. To get the most of out of your System Center investment and to ensure compatibility with other software applications and systems, we recommend you take advantage of the True Control Center. Take it for a test drive in our demo lab or request a free 30-day trial.

The User Device Affinity app enables Administrators, service desk staff, and other users to easily search, view, edit, and manage user-to-device relationships outside of the Configuration Manager Console. Greater ease of UDA management allows for better use of user-centric application deployments.

With the User Device Affinity app, you can easily:

  • View existing user to device relationships
  • Associate new users to existing devices
  • Remove users from existing devices
  • Add new devices to existing users
  • Remove devices from existing users
  • Search and filter users and devices for management of UDA relationships
  • Launch Remote Manage in the context of a computer

Solution Inspiration

Associating users to their primary devices (user device affinity) is a great feature of Configuration Manager. It allows you to easily deploy applications to a user’s primary device (often referred to as ‘user centric software delivery’). It also provides helpful information to your Service Desk so when a user calls in for support, they can have information on what computer they might be using. The problem with user device affinity is getting it configured, and configured correctly, in your environment. There are over a half dozen ways to associate users to computers – some automated, however most manual – which can lead to mistakes. The Cireson User Device Affinity app easily allows an administrator to view and manage the relationships between users and devices. This process is completed outside the Configuration Manager Console, which reduces complexity and confusion.
