Introduction: Apply a firmware update to devices

To apply a firmware update to devices, you must create a campaign and specify which firmware version will be pushed. You then assign devices to that campaign. When you activate the campaign, the firmware update is pushed to the assigned devices. Every 24 hours from the time the campaign is activated, the Knox E-FOTA client app on the assigned devices automatically polls the Knox E-FOTA server to check for any policy changes made to the campaign.

Knox E-FOTA One allows you to create two types of campaigns:

  • Normal campaign—Allows you to assign production firmware to devices
  • Test campaign—Allows you to assign dummy firmware to devices
  • Local campaign—Allows you to deploy a firmware update to devices through your local network.

This section describes how to create the different types of campaigns.

NOTE—You must enroll devices first before you can assign them to a campaign.

TIP—For information on how a device behaves during a firmware update, see What happens to a device during a campaign?
