Enrolling Work Managed Devices Using AirWatch Identifier

During Work Managed Device enrollment, the user enters a special DPC-specific identifier token when they are prompted to add an account. A token is in the format “afw#EMM_Identifier” and automatically identifies AirWatch as your EMM provider.

Important: This enrollment flow is only for Android for Work accounts using Android 6.0 (M+) devices.

To enroll using the AirWatch Identifier:

  1. Tap Get Started on your factory reset device.
  2. Select your Wi-Fi network and login with your credentials to connect the device.
  3. Enter the identifier “afw#airwatch” when prompted to add a Google account. The setup wizard adds a temporary Google Account to the device. This account is only used to download the DPC from Google Play and is removed upon completion.
  4. Tap Install to begin configuration of the AirWatch Agent to the device. The Agent will automatically open after install is complete.
  5. Choose the Authentication Method to continue enrollment:
    • Select Email Address if you have configured Autodiscovery. In addition, you may be prompted to select your Group ID from a list.
    • Choose Server Details andd enter Server, Group ID, and user credentials.
  6. Follow the remaining prompts to complete enrollment.

All profiles and applications start to automatically push to the device. The AirWatch Console reports the status of Android for Work on the users devices. You can check the Details View page to verify that Android for Work was successfully created.

Navigate to Devices > Details View > Summary and view the Security section of the page to view the status. A green check displays to verify Android for Work activation.
