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

Hexnode MDM allows Non-AD users to enroll devices with the pre-shared credentials created by the admin. No hassles of sending enrollment requests to every user. Only that the users should know their appropriate login credentials. Admin creates enrollment passwords from the MDM console and users enroll their devices by authenticating with these passwords.

To configure self-enrollment for Non-AD users,

  1. Go to Enroll > All Enrollments > Enterprise > Self-Enrollment – Local.
  2. If authenticated enrollment is already configured, all your local users will be listed.

    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.

  3. Select the required user and click on Change password > Type in a password > OK.
    You can also select a number of users and assign a single password for all of the selected users.

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