AirPlay Permissions

AirPlay Permissions allow you to map one or more mobile devices to an AirPlay destination, such as an Apple TV, so that those mapped mobile devices can be automatically paired with the AirPlay destination. When a mobile device is mapped to an AirPlay destination via AirPlay Permissions, you can also choose to automatically give the mobile device the password for the AirPlay destination, or to make only the permitted AirPlay destinations available to that device.

When configuring AirPlay Permissions, you must choose a mobile device inventory field to use to map devices to permitted AirPlay destinations. The inventory field you choose is automatically mapped to an AirPlay destination when the value in that field is the same for both the mobile device and the AirPlay destination device.
