Add MDM Integration to GroundControl

In this section, you will access both the Workspace ONE UEM console and the GroundControl console to create an API Integration.  You'll leverage this API integration to create a workflow that will automatically enroll and unenroll the device into Workspace ONE UEM.

1. Access Workspace ONE UEM Settings

From the workstation where you are taking the Hands-on Lab, return to the Workspace ONE UEM console in Google Chrome:

  1. Click Groups & Settings
  2. Click Settings

2. Access Automated Enrollment Settings

  1. Expand Devices & Users
  2. Expand Apple

4. Export Automated Enrollment Profile

  1. Scroll down to the bottom of the Automated Enrollment Settings page

5. Access Rest API Settings

  1. Expand System
  2. Expand Advanced
  3. Expand API
  4. Click REST API
  5. Ensure you view the General tab
  6. Note the REST API URL - you will need this in a later step.

  8. Click Copy.
  9. Click Close.

6. Add MDM Integration in GroundControl

Return to the GroundControl Console:

  4. Select the Automated Enrollment Profile (e.g. AirWatch-<YourVLPEMailAddress>.mobileconfig)

  2. Enter the Host (not the full URL) from the Workspace ONE UEM REST API settings page, which is
  3. Enter your VLP Email Address as the API User.  This is the same email address you used to login to the Workspace ONE UEM and GroundControl consoles.
  4. Enter VMware1! as the API Password.
  5. Paste the API KEY you copied from the Workspace ONE UEM Rest API settings page
  6. Click Test
  7. Ensure you receive Test Connection: OK status from the test

For simplicity, this lab uses your HOL Administrator credentials to authenticate the API integration.  In a typical test/production scenario, UEM/GroundControl administrators are highly encouraged to create a dedicated API user with appropriate role-based  permissions.
