NFC Tag Enrollment


On Android 6.0+, Android Enterprise Work Managed enrollment is supported through a single NFC bump using the VMware Relay application. The NFC communication can contain Wi-Fi configuration, download location for the Android Agent, and enrollment details such as server name, group ID, username and password for a seamless out of box enrollment for Work Managed devices.

To simplify the NFC bulk-enrollment process even further, it is possible to program an NFC tag to pass the same information as the VMware Relay application. This document provides the steps and format to program the NFC tag for single-bump enrollment on Android 6.0+ devices.


How to configure NFC tags

Perform the following steps to configure NFC tags for Android Work Managed Device enrollment:

  1. Use NFC Tools (free app) from Google Play
  2. Configure a data record to write to the NFC tag, use the below content (make sure to keep the “\n” for formatting purposes):
    Data type: application/\nun\=username\nserverurl\\npw\=password\ngid\=groupid\n\="SSID"\://
