Believe it or not, automated enrollment is NOT recommended per VMware Workspace ONE support. This is mainly for devices running iOS 10 and below. Proceed at your own risk…
In my previous blog post titled Steps to enroll non-DEP device into Apple DEP with Apple Configurator for VMware Workspace ONE UEM by AirWatch, I explained in depth how to add a non-DEP device into Apple DEP with Apple Configurator. However, there are many other use cases with this valuable tool. In this post, I will share the steps to configure automated enrollment.
For reference, I reviewed chapter 3 of the guide below. I hope to supplement it with screenshots and clarification wherever applicable.
This post assumes you already created a Wi-Fi profile per my previous post. If not, within Apple Configurator click on File -> New Profile and create it accordingly (you may reference my previous post on the steps required).
Then, create a new blueprint per screenshots below.
Give this profile a name (i.e. Automated Enrollment). Then, click Prepare on top.
Finally, connect your iOS device to your macOS workstation. Within Apple Configurator, select the device and click Actions -> Apply and select the blueprint created for automated enrollment.
I get the error below whether the device is already enrolled in Apple DEP or not. VMware Workspace ONE support doesn’t know either.
Bottom line: just forget this altogether.
