For Datalogic devices, the enrollment process has been enhanced to include additional properties in the QR code and the option to encrypt the QR code. These Datalogic specific options can be configured using the Android Enterprise QR Code Generator.
Additional features are only for Datalogic Android devices and are supported in these firmware versions:
|Device||Minimum firmware version|
|Memor 10 Android 8||v1.06|
|Memor 10 Android 9||v2.02|
|Memor 20 Android 9||v1.02|
|Joya Touch A6 Android 8.1.0||v3.01.01|
QR code enrollment method
The QR code method is used to configure device owner mode and enroll a device in an enterprise. The QR code contains the properties needed by the Device Policy Controller (DPC) for provisioning. The QR code is scanned in the Setup Wizard on a factory reset device.
The standard QR code method requires tapping on the Welcome screen 6 times and then using the device's camera to capture the enrollment QR code. However, Datalogic has improved the QR code provisioning method, allowing the enrollment QR code to be scanned at any time in the Setup Wizard using the device's built-in scanning hardware. There is no need to tap on the Welcome screen or use the device's camera with a Datalogic device.
Once the enrollment QR code has been scanned, the Setup Wizard downloads the DPC application and initiates the device owner provisioning process.
QR code generation
EMMs provide a way for administrators to create the enrollment QR code for their DPC. Administrators can also use online QR code generators to manually create their QR code. The problem is these QR codes may contain sensitive information, such as Wi-Fi credentials, and most are not encrypted.
The Android Enterprise QR Code Generator generates encrypted or unencrypted QR codes. Encrypted QR codes are only supported on Datalogic devices (see supported firmware versions) and unencrypted QR codes can be used with any Android device.
Administrators may choose to manually create an enrollment QR code or create an enrollment QR code for one of our EMM partners. There are also additional properties, such as configuring an APN or EAP network, that may be included in the QR code to aid in the device provisioning process. Additional features are only supported on Datalogic devices.
Encrypting and editing unencrypted QR codes
An Android Enterprise QR code that is unencrypted can be imported into the Android Enterprise QR Code Generator. Once imported, the QR code data can be edited and encrypted. This feature can be used to encrypt and add additional properties to an Android Enterprise QR code generated by an EMM. Please see the Import QR Code section for more information.
