Device Provisioning File Formats

Feb 12, 2015

Many mobile operators or device manufacturers provide lists of authorized mobile devices, and you can use these lists to avoid having to enter a long list of mobile devices manually. XenMobile supports an import file format that is common to all three supported device types: Android, iOS, and Windows.

A provisioning file that you create manually and use to import devices to XenMobile must be in the following format:

  • SerialNumber;IMEI;OperatingSystemFamily;propertyName1;propertyValue1;propertyName2;propertyValue2; ... propertyNameN;propertyValueN
  • The file charset must be UTF-8.
  • The fields within the provisioning file are separated by a semi-colon (;). If part of a field contains a semi-colon, it must be escaped with a backslash character (\). For example, the property propertyV;test;1;2 would be typed as propertyV\;test\;1\;2 in the provisioning file.
  • SerialNumber is required if IMEI is not given.
  • SerialNumber is required for iOS devices because the serial number is the iOS device identifier.
  • IMEI is required if SerialNumber is not given.
  • Valid values for OperatingSystemFamily are: WINDOWS, ANDROID, or iOS.

Example of device provisioning file

The following lines each describe a device in a device provisioning file.

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





The first entry means the following:

  • SerialNumber: 1050BF3F517301081610065510590391
  • IMEI: 15244201625379901
  • OperatingSystemFamily: WINDOWS
  • ProertyName: propertyN
  • PropertyValue: propertyV\;test\;1\;2;prop 2
