Both the AXIS platform and its APIs support device management. Settings relating to device registration limits can also be configured in Presentation Manager.
Note: Support for device management is not available on any Reference Apps.
What settings can I configure?
To access your device management options in Presentation Manager, navigate to ADMIN → Settings and select System from the side menu. The relevant settings can be found under Playback.
The following mandatory configuration options relate to device registration:
- Max Deregistrations Per Month - The number of devices your user is allowed to de-register per month.
- Max Devices Per User Account - The maximum number of devices allowed per user account.
- Max Registrations Per Month - The number of devices your user is allowed to register per month.
- Period Days - The number of days AXIS recognizes as a month.
Note: Presentation Manager exposes configuration for maximum devices, device registration, and deregistrations - these are enforced by the API.
When is device registration triggered?
Your user's device registration occurs at the first point of playback for mobile and web. This means the device is only registered when your user starts playing content, rather than when they're browsing through content or managing their account settings.
TV devices are registered when your user first signs in to your app from their smart TV. This minimizes any complex playback scenarios that could arise, providing your users with a smooth viewing experience.
Note: Settings for registering and de-registering devices can also be configured through the AXIS API.
