Personal USB Device - Loginless

Poly Lens Desktop - Windows installer, offers a personal device user a Loginless deployment option. IT admins can create a unique client token within a Poly Lens cloud account that when deployed together with Lens Desktop to personal devices, Poly Lens will automatically associate all users to the Poly Lens cloud account associated with the token without needing the personal device user to login. This method identifies current logged in users on a Windows Operating System, allowing immediate management of all USB and Bluetooth personal devices including headsets, USB video, and personal speakerphones.

Things to Consider

  • If you have chosen to deploy Loginless deployment, the SSO app installation will fail for that end user.

  • When installing a per-machine Poly Lens Desktop Client v1.1.26 or Later, the client will auto uninstall older versions and proceed with the per-machine install. As well, any future per-user installation will be blocked from installing.

  • Once Loginless is deployed, we recommend that IT Admins who had older Poly Lens Desktop versions installed manually delete these versions from Poly Lens Inventory.

  • We do not support installing over the same version of Lens Desktop, if modifications need to be made to the same version, we recommend IT admins to first uninstall the Poly Lens Desktop client software.

  • We recommend IT Admins to first uninstall instances of their Plantronics Hub when deploying Poly Lens Desktop client.

  • Once Poly Lens Desktop is deployed with the Loginless method, you will no longer need to manually add device users in the Poly Lens portal.
