Android EMM Zero-Touch Enrollment

What

Android Zero Touch Enrollment (ZTE) is a method for automatic device enrollment based on the device's participation in your organization's Zero-Touch Enrollment Portal. 

ZTE Portal

The portal is located at : https://partner.android.com/zerotouch

But requires enrollment into the program before you can login.

When/Why

We'll want to use ZTE to ensure that devices are enrolled and are under Enterprise management.  (Opt-in enrollments will almost always end up with some devices not being enrolled. and we would like to ensure our devices are all managed, preferably without us ever touching them).  ZTE ensures that the device is enrolled when first setup.

How

Much of the setup for ZTE is done from outside of FileWave, but the Android ZTE portal must know about your FileWave MDM server, hence there is some configuration necessary.

You must have an Android ZTE Configuration created in your portal to configure your ZTE devices to point to FileWave.  You'll find detailed information on setting up your ZTE portal and configuration here: https://support.google.com/work/android/answer/7514005

When you create the configuration, you'll fill out the names and such for your organization, but two pieces of information will be driven from your use of FileWave.  First, you'll set the EMM DPC as Android Device Policy and second you will copy/paste in the FileWave JSON into the DPC extras field.  You get this JSON text from the FileWave Admin in Preferences→ Google→ Configure Enterprise → Copy ZeroTouch Configuration.  You'll see the FileWave Admin and Portal Configuration below:
