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
- Make sure you completed APNs upload part as per Setting Up APNs.
- Make sure you have at-least one Device Profile as per Create an Apple Device Profile.
Please watch the video for a visual walkthrough on how to create a QR Code configuration.

- Click on CREATE.
- This will open a Dialog where you need to do the following,
- Enter a Configuration Name
- Choose either a Device Group OR an Android Profile OR an Apple Profile
- Specify a Device Naming Convention that will be used to auto-generate device names.
- Enter a Configuration Name, choose the Apple Device Profile that we created an a naming conventions. Once you have entered the details in Step 3, click SAVE.
- Once the configuration is saved, it will appear in the list. A configuration has the following things,
