How to configure self-enrollment for Non-Directory users using Hexnode?

Hexnode allows Non-Active Directory users to enroll devices with the pre-assigned credentials created by the admin. No hassles of sending enrollment requests to every user, just have the appropriate user login credentials. Admin creates enrollment passwords from the Hexnode console and users can easily enroll their devices by authenticating with these passwords.

To configure self-enrollment for Non-AD users,

  1. Go to Enroll > All Enrollments
  2. From the vertical list, choose Self Enrolment-Local under Enterprise
  3. If authenticated enrollment is already configured, all your local users will be listed.
  4. If authenticated enrollment is turned off, a page appears to turn it on. Check the option Local User under Self Enrollment and click Continue. This will take you to the page where all the local users are listed.

  5. Select the required user and click on Change password.
  6. You can type in the required password and click OK.
  7. The single password remains assigned to a single user or multiple users as per your selection.

Share this password with the corresponding user. While enrolling devices, the user must provide his email and authenticate with this pre-assigned password.
