After selecting Sideload as the staging enrollment type in the Enrollment Configuration wizard, create a sideload staging package to download and install onto a device to configure and enroll the rugged device automatically.


You must create a staging package before you create a sideload staging package. See Create a Staging Package.

The staging user for the staging package must be a basic user account. Do not use staging users or multi-user staging.


To create a side staging package, take the following steps.

  1. Navigate to Devices > Staging & Provisioning > Staging.

  2. Select a previous staging package that you want to create a sideloaded staging package for. Select the More option and select Staging Side Load from the drop-down.

  3. Select the Organization Group to which this staging applies.
  4. (Optional) Enable Universal Barcode to enable a universal enrollment so devices can be enrolled without automatically assigning an organization group. This allows you to enroll devices without needing a Sideload enrollment for each organization group. The AirWatch Agent will prompt you to enter an organization group after beginning the staging process.
  5. Select Download to start downloading the zip file of the staging sideload.
