Before you can use Factory Provisioning , you must install the Factory Provisioning Service in your environment.

Prerequisites

This process installs the Factory Provisioning Service into your environment. Only On-Premises customers must install this service. Consider reviewing the VMware Workspace ONE UEM Recommended Architecture Guide before installing the service.

Ensure that the servers the Factory Provisioning Service are installed on can reach and connect to your REST API server. The URL for REST API is set under Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Advanced > Site URLs > REST API URL.

Use TLS to ensure that the traffic between the Factory Provisioning Service server and the Workspace ONE UEM console is secured. To use TLS, you must install a certificate for the Factory Provisioning Service server and enable HTTPS.

Procedure

  1. On the server you want to install the Factory Provisioning Service onto, downloade the Factory Provisioning Service.
    If you are using a version of the Workspace ONE UEM console before 1811, download the installer from https://resources.workspaceone.com/view/cqp8nwklnmwnddgpphjv. If you are using version 1811 or later, download the installer from https://resources.workspaceone.com/view/gn7wrl7bbbtwzttgsm3r/en.
  2. Run the Factory Provisioning Service installer.
  3. In the Workspace ONE UEM console, navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Advanced > Site URLs.
  4. Ensure that the correct URL is entered: https://[FPS URL]/FactoryProvision/Package.

Results

The Factory Provisioning Service is now installed. You can validate the installation by checking the communication between the various components used.

Factory Provisioning Service and the following:
  • REST API over HTTPS
  • Device Services over HTTPS
  • CDN (if configured)
  • Network file share access

The Workspace ONE UEM console and the REST API server communicate with the Factory Provisioning Service server over HTTPS.
