Knox E-FOTA

Overview

This knowledge base article highlights and explains several new features in Knox E-FOTA.

Registering your devices in Knox E-FOTA

You can add devices to Knox E-FOTA in three different ways:

  • Uploading directly to the Knox E-FOTA portal
  • Registering through Knox Deployment Program (KDP)
  • Registering through a UEM

Out-of-box experience

On devices running Android P and higher purchased through an official Samsung reseller, the Knox E-FOTA client app is automatically installed during the out-of-box experience.

Devices are onboarded to Knox E-FOTA without user intervention.

Note

This feature is only available if your devices were registered through KDP.

Auto Firmware Subscription

When you create a campaign, default values are already set to streamline the creation process. Any values entered for the firmware installation period are validated through the Knox E-FOTA server.

Multiple-model update per campaign

You can now assign multiple device models with different firmware releases to a single campaign.

Push and poll

Ensure that campaign updates are quickly received by a device by either manually pushing the updates from the Knox E-FOTA server, or having the device poll the server for updates. The client app checks for and applies any changes that were not manually pushed.
