This guide provides instructions on how to manage USB devices for your sites using fleet configuration via VoltConsole. See Fleet for conceptual details of the fleet.

By default all USB devices are denied in the fleet and you can either allow all or attach USB device policies to manage specific devices. You can also create USB device policy from within the fleet configuration.
Using the instructions in this guide, you can update fleet configuration to enable or disable access to all or specific USB devices for your sites that are part of the fleet.
