Whether we can develop a client app to auto-complete the user actions during device enrollment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have two questions on device enrollment.

    Question 1. A built-in management component on device is used to do the device enrollment and management. Currently there are several steps need user's action(please refer to the following steps). We want to know whether there are device APIs available for developer to develop a client APP to auto-complete the enrollment without user's action after the APP gets user's email address and a valid token(used to authenticate).

    step 1. user selects 'setting' -> 'workplace' -> 'Add account'.

    step 2. user inputs his email address. Built-in management component will access Auto Discovery server to get the Authentication Type and Authentication  server URL and other server URLs, and then built-in management component will access the Authentication server URL(for federated type) and show the Authentication log in page to user.

    step 3. user type his credential. Then built-in management component will auto-complete the next steps with MDM server without user's more action.

    Question 2: Protocol says "Windows Phone 8.1 supports the launching of the workplace control panel using a hyperlink: ms-settings-workplace". We tried to open this hyperlink via email, but it said:"This link can't be opened from an email message". Then how to open that hyperlink to launch the workplace control panel?

  • For Windows Phone 8.1 there are no APIs to develop a client app to automate the enrollment without user action. 

    Regarding your question about hyperlink. It should be mssettings-workplace:

    Looks like below link has some information about this scenario:

  • One more question: is it possible to auto-fill the email address after launch the workplace? Can we pass a user's email address to launch the panel then the built-in component could auto-fill the email address into the input field?
