Prerequisites for connecting to MobileIron

This section describes prerequisite steps you need to perform before you can start connecting to MobileIron.

You can connect to a MobileIron on-premise server or cloud (Saas) server. It is assumed that you already have a MobileIron account that you use to connect to your on-premise or cloud console. You will be using the login credentials for that account to connect Knox E-FOTA One to MobileIron.

NOTE

  • MobileIron On-premise: Only version 10.8 and later are supported.

  • MobileIron Cloud: You can only sync device groups from the default space (Global space).

  • When connecting to Knox E-FOTA One, your GDPR (General Data Privacy Regulation) profile must not be enabled in the MobileIron console. If it is enabled, no data will be synced between MobileIron and Knox E-FOTA. Once connected, you must keep GDPR disabled. Otherwise, the next group sync may cause your synced devices to be removed from Knox E-FOTA.
