Managing Automated Device Enrollment

Before you begin

You must have already created a new ADE add devices rule that consists of the new enrollment settings.

If you have a large number of devices to reassign, you can import a .csv file containing your device's serial numbers. The first column of the .csv file must be the serial number and the second column must be the device type: iPad or iPhone.

About this task

To assign Apple ADE devices to add devices rules for the selected ADE account:


  1. On the Apple tab, select the Rules tab.
  2. Right-click an ADE add devices rule and select Manage ADE Assignments to open the Manage Automated Device Enrollment dialog box and display devices currently assigned to the selected rule within the specific ADE account.
  3. Select All Devices in Selected Account from the Devices Assigned To drop-down to display all of the ADE devices enrolled under the selected account.
  4. Click Manage Assignments to open the Manage Assignments dialog box.
  5. Click the Add button and enter the serial number of the device that you want to reassign in the Serial Number field. Alternatively, click Import File to upload a .csv file and skip the next step.
    SOTI MobiControl matches the serial number with an existing device in the database and then populates the rest of the fields with the corresponding information.
  6. Repeat until you have entered all of the devices that you want to reassign.
  7. Fix any errors using the Edit and Delete buttons.
    Errors are caused by duplicate entries, missing information, or invalid devices (devices that are not assigned to this instance of SOTI MobiControl). Device reassignment cannot proceed until the flagged errors are resolved.
  8. Once you are satisfied with the list of devices, select a new ADE add devices rule from the Choose Action drop-down list.
  9. Click OK to save your changes and close the Manage Assignments dialog box and OK again to close the Manage Automated Device Enrollment dialog box.


You can review the statuses of your reassigned devices in the Manage Automated Device Enrollment dialog box. The reassignment goes into effect when the device next activates.
