What is the difference between "profile assigned" and "profile pushed" in DEP?

Hi,

I think my subject shows the question. What is the difference between "profile pushed" (green) and "profile assigned" (yellow) in status collum from Devices/DEP?
For my understanding, all devices should be shown in green to work with them, but assigned "sounds" better. So what is the difference?

I've seen this before and it was never clear to me either, but the use of yellow and green seem to be of some significance. My assumption is that if the profile is assigned but not pushed is that JS hasn't sync'd with Apple School Manager yet. Going along with that logic that could mean if there were to be any communication lapses between the two the device would potentially skip ADE.

Ok, but this is your thought. And it sounds good, but is this the real differenze?

@user-BbMOZWKlUL I'd ask Jamf School support or your account manager that question. There isn't any documentation on it so they're assuming you can make assumptions based on the color.
