How to configure Unitech devices with OEMConfig

OEMConfig is a new Android standard that allows device manufacturers (OEMs) to create custom enterprise features for their devices. Unitech OEMConfig (com.unitech.oemconfig) is the OEMConfig application developed by Unitech. It allows enterprises to configure and manage Unitech devices with its native management features. Hexnode provides a handy and intuitive interface where administrators can easily view and set up these Unitech-specific configurable items for devices.

Notes:


Works on Unitech devices running Android (6.0+) enrolled in the Android Enterprise program.

Configure Unitech devices with Unitech OEMConfig

Before configuring Unitech devices, make sure to:

  • Enroll your organization in the Android Enterprise program.
  • Enroll your devices in Android Enterprise (Device Owner or Profile Owner).

Configuring devices with the Unitech OEMConfig app is a two-step process:

  1. Approve and Add Unitech OEMConfig to the Hexnode inventory
  2. Configure Unitech-specific settings

Approve and Add Unitech OEMConfig to the Hexnode inventory

To add the Unitech OEMConfig app to the Hexnode inventory,

  1. Go to Apps > + Add Apps > Managed Google Apps.
  2. Search the Unitech OEMConfig app and select it.
  3. Click Approve. This action will take you to the Approval Settings page, where you can select the method by which you would like to handle new app permission requests.
  4. Navigate to the Notifications tab, where you can provide your email addresses to get notified when the OEMConfig app requests new app permissions. Click Add.
  5. Click Done to add the app to the app inventory.
  6. Next, distribute these approved apps to the target devices.
