Use your Apple Global Service Exchange (GSX) account information to integrate AppleCare with AirWatch. This feature allows administrators to look up device details related to the display model name, the device purchase and warranty status directly from the AirWatch Console. If any devices in an organization group are missing a display model name, then a time scheduler runs periodically to search and update these names using the GSX information that was configured for the devices at that organization group level.
Only authorized Apple employees or organizations that have registered with Apple’s Self-Servicing Account Program can access GSX information. To learn more, see the Apple Service Programs website.
To configure AppleCare:
Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Apple > AppleCare
To configure a GSX connection with the AirWatch Console, you must have a GSX account with manager-level access, access to web services, and access to coverage and warranty information.
