Who can use this feature?

πŸ‘€ Organizations Owners and Admins.
🚩 Available on the Starter, Essential and Enterprise Plans.

Overview

The QR code enrollment method allows administrators to enroll devices to ArborXR by generating and then scanning a QR code. The QR code contains automatic enrollment credentials and a Wi-Fi payload. Administrators can also download and share the QR code to allow users to self-enroll their devices.

Supported Devices

Devices that support this enrollment method include:

  • Magic Leap 2

  • PICO Neo 3 Pro

  • PICO G3

  • PICO 4 Enterprise

  • HTC VIVE Focus 3 & VIVE XR Elite

  • Phones & tablets

  • RealWear devices

  • Vuzix M400 & M4000

πŸ’‘ Meta Quest devices do not support this enrollment method because they do not offer a step to enable passthrough and scan a QR code as part of the initial device unboxing and setup.


Generate the QR code

  1. Navigate to Groups in the side navigation menu.

  2. Select the group you would like to enroll devices into.

  3. Select the Settings tab.

  4. Expand the Enrollment section.
    ​

  5. Beneath QR Codes, select Build New.

  6. Enter a unique title to distinguish the QR code.

  7. Enter the Wi-Fi payload details devices will be within range of at the time of scanning the QR code.
    ​


    πŸ’‘ Multiple QR codes can be generated from the same group. If you are sharing QR codes with users for them to self-enroll, you can create a unique QR code per user with their Wi-Fi payload details.


  8. Click Generate.

  9. Now that the QR code has been generated and is displayed in the QR Codes table, click on the download icon to download a .png of the QR code or click on the expand icon to open the QR code on your machine for device scanning.
