User Management

To drive your BYOD strategy, it is very important to import your users to Scalefusion. This helps Scalefusion to identify and authorize the employees of your company when they try to enroll and helps you to invite the users using the Scalefusion Dashboard and keep track of the usage.

Scalefusion offers a simple User Management flow, primarily divided into two parts,

  1. User Management: This section helps you add the users or import en-masse. You can set additional enrollment rules so as to get a fine-grain control on the deployment.
  2. User Groups and Subgroups: This section, helps you group your users so that you can manage them easily and at one-shot rather than managing them individually.

In this guide, we will learn how to add users, import users using O365, import users using GSuite

Before You Begin

  1. Make sure that you have a valid Scalefusion Dashboard account.
  2. Have created a BYOD Profile and an Enrollment configuration for at-least one device OS type.
    1. Android:
      1. BYOD Profile
      2. Enrollment Configuration
    2. iOS:
      1. BYOD Profile
      2. Enrollment Configuration
    3. macOS:
      1. BYOD Profile
      2. Enrollment Configuration

User Management

At a high-level, Scalefusion's user management offers the following functionalities,

  1. Adding a User
  2. Importing Users in bulk
  3. Inviting the Users
  4. Viewing Enrolled Devices
  5. Deleting the User

Adding a User

Follow the steps below to start adding users to Scalefusion Dashboard.

  1. Sign In to Scalefusion Dashboard and navigate to Enrollment Configurations > User Enrollment
  2. Click on ADD USER to add one user using the add user wizard. The wizard offers you the following options,
    1. Username: Provide the username/display name for the user to be added.
    2. Email: Provide the email for the user. This is the email that the user will use to sign in to Scalefusion client on their devices.
    3. Phone Number: An optional field to provide the phone number. This is currently unused but in future you can use it with Eva Communication Suite for a unified contact book.
    4. Number Of Devices: Select how many devices the user can use to enroll. The default is 1, that is the user is restricted to using only one device. You can choose a range between 1-4 devices. If it is more than 4 then you can select Any.
    5. IMEI/SERIAL Number(s): This is an optional field and gives you the flexibility of pre-verification of devices from where they can enroll. If you are restricting the users to enroll in a given number of devices, that is 1 to 4, then you can go ahead and add the IMEI/Serial numbers that you want them to restrict to. For example you may want to allow the user to enroll from 2 devices, but have access to only one IMEI, then you can specify only one IMEI number. This would mean the user can enroll from 2 devices, out of which one has to be an exact match.

  1. Clicking on ADD, adds the user and the user starts appearing in the list as shown below.
  2. Once you have added the users, you can go ahead and Invite them as described in our Inviting Users section below. You can use the Edit action from the action panel to edit the user information.
The email field of a user can be edited until the user has not enrolled. Once they enroll, the Email can no longer be edited.

Importing Users in Bulk

To Import users in Bulk, Scalefusion provides two options. The options are,

Import Using CSV

For organizations which do-not use an IDP like Office 365, Instead of adding users one by one you can also choose to bulk import them using a csv file. To do so, follow the steps below,

  1. Sign In to Scalefusion Dashboard and navigate to Enrollment Configurations > User Enrollment
  2. Click on UPLOAD CSV to view the upload CSV wizard. From this screen download the sample CSV first.
  3. The CSV has the following fields,
    1. username: Provide the username/display name for the user to be added.
    2. useremail: Provide the email for the user. This is the email that the user will use to sign in to Scalefusion client on their devices.
    3. phonenumber: An optional field to provide the phone number. This is currently unused but in future you can use it with Eva Communication Suite for a unified contact book.
    4. max_devices: Select how many devices the user can use to enroll. You can enter a value between 1-4 to give a fixed value or -1 to make it to any number of devices.
    5. device_id_1, device_id_2, device_id_3, device_id_4: These are optional fields and gives give you the flexibility of pre-verification of devices from where they can enroll. If you are restricting the users to enroll in a given number of devices, that is 1 to 4, then you can go ahead and add the IMEI/Serial numbers that you want them to restrict to. For example you may want to allow the user to enroll from 2 devices, but have access to only one IMEI, then you can specify only one IMEI number. This would mean the user can enroll from 2 devices, out of which one has to be an exact match.
  4. Once you have added all the data to the CSV file, click on the UPLOAD CSV button in the upload wizard and upload the file. Once the CSV is verified, all the users start appearing in the list on Dashboard.
You can upload as many CSV's you want one after the other. You can also use the Admin and Roles to choose which admins are allowed to do user management.
