Activate multiple devices using zero-touch enrollment for
Android Enterprise

Zero-touch enrollment allows you to deploy a large number of
Android Enterprise
devices at one time.
Your organization purchases these devices from an authorized enterprise reseller, who sets up a zero-touch enrollment account and adds the devices to the account to provision them for device management. When users set up one of these devices for the first time or reset a device to factory settings, the device automatically downloads the
BlackBerry UEM Client
and starts the activation process with
BlackBerry UEM
. If the user restarts the device before activation is complete, cancels the activation, or allows the battery to drain before activation is complete, the device automatically resets to factory settings and the activation process restarts. Users can’t display the device home screen to use device features until activation is complete.
To use zero-touch enrollment in
BlackBerry UEM
, devices must be running
8.0 or later and have been enabled for zero-touch enrollment. For more information about zero-touch enrollment and how to configure it, see the

    You can either leave the username field blank or edit it to include a username so that only that username can be used to log in to the device that uses the configuration.
  7. In the zero-touch platform, create configurations and assign them to the devices that you purchased.
  8. In
    BlackBerry UEM

    Android Enterprise
    ) " activation type enabled.
