Bulk enrollment of Windows devices

Endpoint Management supports bulk enrollment of Windows 10 devices. With bulk enrollment, you can set up many devices for an MDM server to manage without the need to reimage devices. You can use the provisioning package for bulk enrollment for Windows 10 desktop devices. Follow steps in this article to set up and perform bulk enrollment.

Before running bulk enrollment, ensure that all devices are assigned to the correct end-user. Perform this assignment by registering the devices per user or by performing a bulk import of devices.

To assign devices

  1. In the Endpoint Management console, navigate to Manage > Device Whitelist.

  4. To bulk provision devices, download the Windows Configuration Designer from the Microsoft Store. The Windows Configuration Designer creates provisioning packages used to image devices. As part of these packages, you can include Endpoint Management bulk enrollment configuration settings so that devices automatically enroll into Endpoint Management.

    For information on configuring the tool, building a provisioning package, and installing a provisioning package, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/client-management/mdm/bulk-enrollment-using-windows-provisioning-tool. For information on including Endpoint Management bulk enrollment configuration settings, see the section Create and apply a provisioning package for on-premises authentication in that document.
