Article summary

In addition to enrolling devices with QR codes, Company-owned iOS devices can now be enrolled into Scalefusion with an Enrollment URL and code through the Safari browser, as well.

This document explains how it can be done.

This enrollment method lets you enroll the devices in Company Owned Device Management mode. If you are looking to let your employees enroll their personal devices, please refer to our How to Enroll a User/Employee Owned device.

Before you Start

  1. Make sure you completed the APNs upload part as per Setting Up APNs guide.
  2. Make sure you have at least one Device Profile as per Create an Apple Device Profile guide.
  3. Make sure you have at least one QR Code configuration as per Create a QR Code Configuration guide.

Steps on iOS Devices

  1. Start by logging into the Dashboard and navigate to Enrollment Configurations > QR Code Configurations
  2. Expand the Configuration that you want to use. Under the iOS tab, you will find the Enrollment URL and Enrollment Code on the right-side.
  3. On the iOS Device, open Safari type in the Enrollment URL, and press Enter Key
  4. Enter the Code shown in the Enrollment Code section (under QR code configuration on Scalefusion Dashboard) and click on Enroll.
