Who can use this feature?

👤 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

  • HTC VIVE Focus 3 & VIVE XR Elite

  • RealWear

  • Vuzix M400 & M4000

  • Phones & tablets

  • PICO 4 Enterprise

  • PICO Neo 3 Pro

💡 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. Optional: Check the Add Wi-Fi Configuration checkbox and enter Wi-Fi details if you'd like Wi-Fi to be provisioned to the device as part of scanning the QR code.
    ​


    ⚠️ While including Wi-Fi in the QR code payload is optional, the device must already be connected to Wi-Fi prior to scanning the QR code in order for the enrollment to complete successfully.


  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.

Enroll Devices

Magic Leap 2

  1. Power on the factory reset or out-of-the-box device.

    • Important ⚠️: If the device is already set up, you will need to factory reset as MDM enrollment via QR code can only be done during the initial out-of-box device setup experience. After the device has been setup you will not be able to use Magic Leap's QR Scanner app to scan ArborXR's QR code for MDM enrollment.

  2. Complete the initial device setup steps:

    1. Controller pairing.

    2. Language selection.

    3. Prescription insert instructions.

    4. Software license agreement.

    5. Magic Leap Hub.

    6. License Key
