Step 3 : Create a QR Code Configuration

QR Code or Device Enrolment Configurations are a quick and easy way to enrol your iOS devices. By creating a QR Code configuration, you can choose the default Group or Profile and a naming convention for the devices that are enrolled using this QR Code.


Additionally, these Configurations also provide you with an URL that can be used with Apple Configurator 2 or directly on Safari on the iOS device.

Before you Start

  1. Make sure you completed APNs upload part as per Setting Up APNs.
  2. Make sure you have at-least one Device Profile as per Create an Apple Device Profile.
