Article summary

Device Enrollment Configurations are a quick and easy way to enroll your Mac devices. By creating a configuration, you can choose the default Group or Profile and a naming convention for the devices that are enrolled using this configuration.

For each Kiosk/Corporate enrollment configuration, there is one unique URL generated, which can be used on all the Mac devices that you want to enroll using this configuration. You can create as many enrollment configurations as you want depending on the number of Device Profiles that you have.
