View device lifecycle state

You can view the lifecycle state of a device on the [device_name] page. The page name reflects the device name, so this procedure references the page name as [device_name].

There are two ways to navigate to a [device_name] page:

  • From the Devices page:

    1. In the Admin Console, go to Directory > Devices.

    2. In the Device info column, click a device name.

  • From the People page:

    1. In the Admin Console, go to Directory > People.

    2. In the Person & username column, click a user's name.

    3. Click the Devices tab.

    4. In the Device name column, click a device name.

The current device state is at the top of page, located below the device state buttons.
