Pass custom parameters to Device Owner enrollment configuration (JSON) file

Release Notes


In addition to the existing device provisioning options, MaaS360 now allows administrators to pass custom parameters to the enrollment configuration (JSON) file. Administrators can use the Custom Attributes field in the Android Enterprise QR code/ZTE/KME provisioning window to add up to 10 parameters in the form of key-value pairs. MaaS360 agent reads these parameters as a part of Device Owner enrollment and issues corresponding action to the device. In the previous releases, administrators had to manually add the parameters to the JSON file.


Note: Supported for DO enrollments: QR code, ZTE, and KME. Requires MaaS360 for Android version 7.20+.

To add additional attributes,

  1. Navigate to Devices > Enrollments > Other Enrollment Options.
  2. Select either Android Enterprise QR Code Provisioning or Android Enterprise Zero Touch Enrollment/KME Enrollment.
  3. In the enrollment configuration window, provide additional attributes in the form of key-value pairs
