What is Zero-Touch Enrollment?
Chrome OS Zero-Touch Enrollment is an alternative to manually enrolling Chrome devices, notably Chromebooks, into the Google Admin Console. With Zero-Touch Enrollment a pre-provisioned partner automatically enrolls your Chromebooks into the Google Admin console as part of the purchase therefore removing the need to manually enrol devices when they arrive on site. Zero-Touch Enrollment is a solution for large Chromebook fleet deployments where hundreds or thousands of devices are purchased and onboarded at a time.
How does Chromebook Zero-Touch Enrollment work?
As a Chromebook administrator, you need to create a device enrollment pre-provisioning token for specific Organisational Units (OUs) in your Google Admin Console. For a school, pre-provisioning tokens could be specific to each school or a pre-provisioned OU. You send the pre-provisioning token to your preferred Chromebook partner, Geeks on Tap, we then enroll your devices as part of your purchase fulfilment. These devices appear with a “Pre-provisioned” device status. When the new Chromebook devices are turned on for the first time and the zero-touch enrollment is complete the device status will change to “Provisioned”.
There are four requirements for Zero-Touch Enrollment.
