Windows 10 Work Access Enrollment
Device enrollment establishes the initial communication with AirWatch to enable Mobile Device Management (MDM). The enrollment methods for Windows Desktop focus on adding features and functionality depending on how devices are enrolled.
All Windows Desktop enrollments use the native device management app to complete the enrollment process. Windows Auto-Discovery is an optional method of enrolling devices that only requires the end-user's email address to begin the enrollment process.
Enrollment can also require the enabling (console checkbox) of the AirWatch Protection Agent. This agent adds endpoint security to your Windows Desktop devices to ensure your data and devices remain secure wherever the device may go. The AirWatch Protection Agent for Windows Desktop co-opts the native Windows Desktop functionality such as BitLocker encryption, Windows Firewall, and Windows Automatic Updates to keep devices secure and up-to-date.
1. Finding your Group ID
The first step is to make sure you know what your Organization GroupID is.
- To find the Group ID, hover your mouse over the GroupID tab at the top of the screen. Look for the email address you used to log in to the lab portal.
- The GroupID will be displayed under the Organization Group name. The GroupID is required when enrolling your device.

- Click on Access work or school
- Click on Enroll only in device management
2.4. Connecting to Windows Auto Discovery Service
For the workshop we will be using a static email address. This is NOT your email address that you used to login to the lab environment. The reason for this is that there is a Windows Auto-Discovery Service (WADS) setup for this email domain which will point your device to the AirWatch Hands-On-Lab environment that was specifically created for this event. Normally, your user community would enter their corporate email address which would then point their device to your AirWatch environment. If you choose not to use a WADS server then the user would be forced to enter the enrollment URL manually.
- Enter the email address "email@example.com"
- Click on the Next button.
