Android for Work (a.k.a Android in the Enterprise) is a program to create a work container on the device and separate work data/apps from personal data/apps. To enroll the devices in Android for Work, you’ll need to go through three main steps.
- Enroll your Organization in Android in the Enterprise program.
- Enroll devices in Android for Work (device owner or profile owner mode).
- (Optional) Apply configurations and set up app permissions, and/or create a custom App store and install applications.
Enrolling Organization into the Android in the Enterprise Program
Before you start enrolling your devices with the Hexnode for Work app, you’ll need to enroll your Organization in the Android in the Enterprise program. To enroll the Organization in Android in the Enterprise program,
- Go to Enroll > Platform – Specific > Android > Android Enterprise from your Hexnode MDM portal.
- Click on Enroll.
- Sign in with a Google account, click Get Started.
- Type in the name of your Organization, and read the managed Google Play agreement which is linked from the page.
- If you accept the agreement, check the ‘I have read and agree to managed Google Play agreement’ and click Confirm.
- Clicking on the Complete Registration button will take you back to the Hexnode MDM portal after your Organization has been enrolled in the program. You might need to wait a few seconds before you are taken to the Hexnode MDM portal.
Now enroll your devices either in device owner or profile owner mode.
