Generate access keys, activation passwords, or QR codes for
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps

BlackBerry Dynamics
apps require an access key, activation passwords, or QR codes to be activated on a device.
BlackBerry UEM Client
can request access keys or activation passwords automatically from
BlackBerry UEM
after users install an app. You or a user must manually generate access keys, activation passwords, or QR codes and send them to activate
BlackBerry Dynamics
apps in the following situations:
  • For
    Samsung Knox Workspace
    devices
  • For
    iOS
    and

    devices that don't need MDM and do not have the
    UEM Client
    installed
  • For users who want to activate
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    apps on devices that don't require the
    UEM Client
You can generate access keys, activation passwords or QR codes when you create a new user, or anytime afterwards. Users do not need to activate their devices in
BlackBerry UEM
to receive access keys, activation passwords or QR codes. Users do not require an email address for you to generate an access key, activation password, or QR code. Users can also generate access keys, activation passwords, or QR codes in
