Data flow: Activating an 
Android Enterprise
Work space only
 device using a managed 
Google Play
 account

Diagram showing the steps and components mentioned in the following data flow.
This data flow applies when you allow 
BlackBerry UEM
 to manage 
Google Play
 accounts. For more information see the Administration content.
  1. You perform the following actions:
    1. Add a user to 
      BlackBerry UEM
       as a local user account or using the account information retrieved from your company director.
    2. Make sure that the "
      Work space only
      ” activation type is assigned to the user
    3. Set the user's activation password
  2. The user resets their device to the factory default settings. 
  3. The device restarts and prompts the user to select a 
    Wi-Fi
     network and to add an account.
  4. The user enters 
    afw#blackberry
     instead of their 
    Google
     user name.
  5. The device performs the following actions:
    1. If the device is not encrypted, prompts the user to encrypt the device and restarts
    2. Downloads the 
      BlackBerry UEM Client
       from 
      Google Play
       and installs it
  6. The 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     on the device prompts the user to type their email address and activation password.
  7. The user types their email address and activation password or scans the 
    QR Code
    .
  8. The 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     performs the following actions:
    1. Establishes a connection to the 
      BlackBerry Infrastructure
    2. Sends a request for activation information to the 
      BlackBerry Infrastructure
  9. The 
    BlackBerry Infrastructure
     performs the following actions:
    1. Verifies that the user is a valid, registered user
    2. Retrieves the 
      BlackBerry UEM
       server address for the user
    3. Sends the server address to the 
      BlackBerry UEM Client
  10. The 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     establishes a connection with 
    BlackBerry UEM
     using an HTTP CONNECT call over port 443 and sends an activation request to 
    BlackBerry UEM
    . The activation request includes the username, password, device operating system, and unique device identifier.
  11. BlackBerry UEM
     performs the following actions:
    1. Determines the activation type assigned to the user account
    2. Connects to 
      Google
       and creates a managed 
      Google Play
       user
    3. Creates a device instance
    4. Associates the device instance with the specified user account
    5. Adds the enrollment session ID to an HTTP session
    6. Sends the user's managed 
      Google Play
       account information and a successful authentication message to the device
  12. The 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     performs the following actions:
    1. Connects to 
      Google
       to verify the user
    2. Creates a CSR using the information received from 
      BlackBerry UEM
       and sends a client certificate request to 
      BlackBerry UEM
       over HTTPS
  13. BlackBerry UEM
     performs the following actions:
    1. Validates the client certificate request against the enrollment session ID in the HTTP session
    2. Signs the client certificate request with the root certificate
    3. Sends the signed client certificate and root certificate back to the 
      BlackBerry UEM Client
    A mutually authenticated TLS session is established between the 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     and 
    BlackBerry UEM
    .
  14. The 
    BlackBerry UEM Client
     requests all configuration information and sends the device and software information to 
    BlackBerry UEM
    .
  15. BlackBerry UEM
     stores the device information in the database and sends the requested configuration information to the device.
  16. The device sends an acknowledgment to 
    BlackBerry UEM
     that it received and applied the configuration information. The activation process is complete.
