Applies to:
Product                SureMDM
Platform        Android/Windows

If you are enrolling and approving multiple devices in your MDM, the process of manually approving each of those devices can be time consuming.

SureMDMmakes it easy by allowing importing of a list with pre-approved devices details. Once this list is imported in SureMDM, whenever a new device is enrolled, SureMDM checks the pre-approved list and approves the device automatically if listed. To create this setup, below are three steps to be followed:

1. Creating a pre-approved list with device details

2. Importing the file with list of pre-approved devices in SureMDM

3. Configuring SureMDM Nix Agent


STEP 1:

To create a pre-approved list follow below mentioned steps:

1. Open Notepad

2. Enter device details in following format:

– Using MAC Address of the device:

      Device Name, MAC Address, MAC, Group Name/Sub Group Name

      Example: Device1, ab:55:c5:55:5d, MAC, Home/NorthAmerica

mac_address1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

– Using IMEI Number of the device:

      Device name, IMEI number, IMEIGroup Name/Sub Group Name

       Example: Device1,355555555555555, IMEI, Home/NorthAmerica

imei

Note: You can skip “Group Name/Sub Group Name” if you don’t want the devices to be assigned to any group.

3. Name and save the file in .csv format


STEP 2:

1. Log into SureMDM Web Console
