You can add a Manifest to any staging package in Workspace ONE UEM. The manifest can contain any product provisioning components including applications, profiles, Files/Actions, and Event Actions.

While these components can be pushed through product provisioning immediately after enrollment, there are some use-cases for adding these components in the Staging Package Manifest. Consider doing so if they are critical to communication between the devices and Workspace ONE UEM servers.

For example, profiles can be added to a Windows Rugged Sideload Staging Package in order to have the device sync its date and time with an NTP server or to force traffic through an outbound proxy.

The manifest can be added by navigating to Devices > Lifecycle > Staging. Either select the edit icon () to the left of an existing staging package in the listing and proceed to step 1 below or create a new staging package by selecting the Add Staging button. Select the platform then proceed to the Manifest tab.

Prerequisites

If you plan to add Applications, Profiles, Files/Actions or Event Actions, you must create these components before adding them to the manifest. Create these components by navigating to Devices > Provisioning > Components.
