Autodiscovery Enrollment

Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch makes the enrollment process simple, using an email-based autodiscovery system to enroll devices to environments and organization groups (OG). Autodiscovery can also be used to allow end users to authenticate into the Self-Service Portal (SSP).

Note: To enable an autodiscovery for on-premises environments, ensure that your environment can communicate with the Workspace ONE UEM Autodiscovery servers.

Registration for Autodiscovery Enrollment

The server checks for an email domain uniqueness, only allowing a domain to be registered at one organization group in one environment. Because of this server check, register your domain at your highest-level organization group.

Autodiscovery is configured automatically for new Software as a Service (SaaS) customers.
