Step 4 — Enroll devices

Last updated July 26th, 2023

If you chose not to enroll devices when adding them in the previous step, you can do that now by selecting specific devices for enrollment through the device list. This action is only available for devices in Not enrolled and Enrollment pending states.

To enroll your devices:

  1. In the sidebar of your Knox E-FOTA On-Premises console, click Devices.

  2. In the devices list, select the checkboxes next to the devices you want to enroll.

  3. Click ACTIONS, then Enroll Devices.

  4. In the confirmation popup that appears, click ENROLL.

The next time the devices poll the server, they are then enrolled in Knox E-FOTA On-Premises, locking their firmware versions and consuming the corresponding number of license seats.

Create a campaign

Optionally, you can also create and assign your devices to a campaign. Here, you can configure download and installation settings, including scheduled install times, required device battery life, and network limitations.

While creating a campaign in Knox E-FOTA On-Premises is similar compared to Knox E-FOTA, the process is broken down into four steps instead:

  1. BASIC INFO — Enter a campaign name and description.

  2. TARGET FIRMWARE — Choose one or more target firmware versions that were uploaded in the Versions menu. These firmware versions are pushed to your devices once the campaign activates.

  3. POLICY — Select policies for download network, minimum battery level, and allowed number of postponements.


    Knox E-FOTA On-Premises does not provide the option to block factory resets or enter support contact details.

  4. SCHEDULE — Select a start and end date for your campaign, as well as the window of time during which the firmware download and installation occur.

See the Knox E-FOTA admin guide for detailed steps on how to create a campaign.


Ensure you instruct each device user to manually launch the Knox E-FOTA On-Premises agent on their device to complete enrollment.
