Using Comparison Operators with Device Profile Attributes

Some device profile attributes can be modified using comparison operators shown in the below table, which is useful in situations such as these:

  • Keeping a device profile current with software that is automatically updated on client devices—you don’t need to manually change the profile each time the software is updated.

  • Specifying that a specific file detected on client machines has a timestamp greater than a certain date and time.

  • Specifying that the Windows operating system detected on the client device be greater than or equal to a certain version.

Available comparison operators
<Less than
<=Less than or equal to
=Equal to
!=Not Equal to
>=Greater than or equal to
>Greater than

Comparison operators can be used in conjunction with these device profile attributes:

  • File date or time stamp for a specific file

  • File size for a specific file

  • Registry entry (when value data is selected for a registry key)

  • Windows version

  • Advanced End Point Control

    • To specify that the file was updated after June 1, 2017, select >= in the Last modified list, click Absolute, and then type 06/01/2017 in the fields.
