Import Clients for Group Policy Assignment

Is there a way to import a spreadsheet of client mac addresses and assign them to a group policy?  The clients will be connecting through an MX appliance.  I already have a group policy applied to the vlan, the group policy I want to assign to these clients is specific to the ones in my spreadsheet.

Sorta, but I don't think the way you mean. You can update a client's GP via API. So using a script you can take a CSV (or whatever you like) and update the GP's that way.

There's no way in the dashboard other than to assign them manually one at a time.

If you can filter then by say OS in the dashboard you can select them and mass apply the group policy. How many clients are we talking about?

Thanks, that's what I figured.

About 50. But I have 24 separate networks that they could possibly connect to. I'm trying to avoid having to enter all 50 devices on 24 different networks.

(I know, I know, Systems Manager is the solution, but that's not an option for me right now.)
