Configuring MDM Activation Lock with Automated Device Enrollment
Enabling MDM Activation Lock during Automated Device Enrollment is as simple as flicking on a toggle switch. Addigy automatically stores the Device and MDM Activation Lock Bypass Codes during enrollment and can be viewed within GoLive. This switch will be disabled by default but can be enabled by any existing integration.
Note: Current functionality is to only send the MDM command to collect the Device bypass code to devices enrolled via Automated Device Enrollment, with Supervision >> Activation Lock enabled. Prior enrollments sent this command to any device enrolled via MDM; however, devices where Activation Lock was not enabled via Automated Device Enrollment will not need this code.
Toggling MDM Activation Lock in GoLive
Within GoLive for macOS, iOS, and iPadOS devices, Addigy administrators are able to view and toggle MDM Activation Lock. If a device joins Addigy via Automated Device Enrollment and has Enable Activation Lock toggled on, GoLive will also show it as enabled once the initial audit of the device is complete. Both bypass codes are present in this view and toggling off Activation Lock will remove the lock from the device and remove the MDM Bypass Code from the UI.
