Add an ABM token

To automatically enroll devices in Device Management for Apple using Apple Business Manager (ABM), you must generate an ABM token using your customer's ABM account and add it to N-sight RMM Device Management for Apple. From a high-level perspective, the process includes:

  1. Download the public key from N-sight RMM
  2. Upload the public key to Apple Business Manager
  3. Download the ABM token from Apple Business Manager
  4. Upload the ABM token to N-sight RMM

You can add multiple ABM tokens to N-sight RMM from one customer ABM account by repeating this procedure for each token. For example, if a customer has multiple sites, you can add an ABM token for each site.

You can assign devices to specific tokens by assigning the devices to an MDM server. For more information, see Assign devices to an MDM Server.

  1. On the N-sight RMM Vertical menu, select Device Management for Apple
  2. Select Apple Business Manager

  3. Click Add ABM token
  4. Select the target Customer and Site to associate with this ABM token and click Next

    When devices associated with this ABM token automatically enroll in Device Management for Apple, they display in N-sight RMM under this Customer and Site.

    The wizard displays with instructions to sign into Apple Business Manager and upload the public key.
