User-initiated enrollment - Windows

Read this section to learn how to enroll Windows devices as a Device User.

If Windows provisioning package is present in the MDM server, Admin can share the .ppkg file with the Device Users to enroll Windows devices through user-initiated enrollment.

For information on how to create and deploy Windows provisioning package, see Bulk enrollment - Windows.
Important: Ensure that Windows provisioning package (.ppkg file) is not already present in the targeted devices before enrollment. If you are re-enrolling a Windows device, ensure the .ppkg file is manually deleted.
User-initated enrollments can be done in the following ways:
Over-The-Air enrollment

If the MDM server has a Windows provisioning package, when the users on Windows devices hit the MDM Server’s Enrollment URL, the .ppkg file is presented upon successful authentication. Users can use this .ppkg file to automatically enroll with MDM. To do this, complete the following:

  1. Ensure the prerequisites met. On a Windows device which needs to be enrolled, launch a web browser and go to the MDM server URL. If a ppkg package is present on the MDM server and bulk enroll had been configured as TRUE, the following screen appears.
    • If LDAP Authentication is on, enter an email address and Password that is associated with a valid AD set of credentials and click Enroll.
    • If LDAP authentication is off, just click Enroll.
    A ppkg file gets downloaded.

  2. Click the downloaded ppkg file; the enrollment process begins.

Enrollment via E-mail or link to download PPKG file
If the admin shares the .ppkg file with the device user via E-mail, downloadable link, or any other means, and if the device user double clicks that .ppkg file, MDM enrollment profile is added to the endpoint.
