Many mobile operators or device manufacturers provide lists of authorized mobile devices, and you can utilize these to avoid having to enter a long list of mobile devices manually. Device Manager supports an import file format that is common to all three of the supported device types.

Note the following:

  • File charset must be UTF-8/
  • Semi-colon (;) is used as the field delimiter so it must be escaped if it is present in the data.
  • For iOS device import, Serial Number is mandatory. Serial Number is the identifier for iOS devices.

For example:

1050BF3F517301081610065510590391;15244201625379901;WINDOWS;propertyN;propertyV\;test\;1\;2;prop 2;prop2 value
