Manage devices

Knox Configure requires resellers to submit device information on behalf of their customers before profiles can be pushed to enrolled devices.

Through the reseller portal, resellers are able to review devices uploaded to a customer, upload a device and delete devices.

Upload a device

NOTE — The Knox Reseller Portal doesn't contain a generic CSV file template that can be downloaded for new device uploads. When uploading new devices, only the new Device IDs require submission within a new CSV file.

For the CSV file template, ensure the following when inputting to a new CSV file:

  • Enter one device IMEI per line. Avoid commas to ensure device information is uploaded correctly into the portal.
  • To prevent numeric device IDs from being converted into scientific notation format: Open the Format Cells screen from the Microsoft Excel Home screen Number drop-down menu. Select Number from the Category menu, and set the Decimal places value to 0. Select OK to save the updated setting.

To upload a device:

  1. Log in to the Knox Reseller Portal.
  2. Select Customers from the left-hand navigation.

  3. Under Company name / Internal reference, select the target customer link.

  4. Select the UPLOADS tab.

  5. Click UPLOAD DEVICES.

  6. Enter the following information:

    • Device CSV file — Click BROWSE to select a CSV file containing the IMEIs, order date, and order number of purchased devices pending upload.
    • Order number — (Optional) Provide the order number for the listed customer's devices.
    • Order date — Click on the calendar icon to select the date when the customer placed the order.
    • Tags — (Optional) Tags allow you to search for devices easily once they have been uploaded into Knox Configure.
  7. Click Upload to commit the device upload data into the Reseller Portal for the selected customer.
