Deleting Unenrolled Devices via the AirWatch API

Standard

We’ve started to look at enabling “Compliance Policies” within AirWatch. However, these are scoped to “Assignment Groups” (was “Smart Groups”, another thing that seems to be mid-rename) & “Assignment Groups” do not have criteria for a devices “Enrolment Status”.
