Supervision Options

Created: Modified: Workflow Actions

NOTE: The workflow actions available to you depend on the Workflow model you select, the MDM system you use, and the OS of your devices.

When supervising an erased device with GroundControl, you can set two options:

  • Allow/disallow pairing to other hosts
  • Show/skip setup screens

To configure these options, go to the workflow edit page and select Options under the Supervise action. When an action that requires supervision is added to a workflow, for example Set Name, the supervision action is automatically added to the workflow.

By default, GroundControl does not allow pairing to other hosts. If you want your devices to be able to pair with other hosts, use radio buttons to change preferences. This will allow iTunes to connect, for example.

Show/Skip Setup Screens

The Show/Skip setup screens feature is designed to let you determine which set up screens to show or skip when deploying to an erased device.   If Language and Locale are not shown, the language defaults to English and the locale to U.S.

This feature is sensitive to device type, iOS and other conditions. For more information, see this knowledge base article.
