Getting Started
Step 1 – Obtain the Locker App for Android from Google Play

Step 2 – Assign and Register Locker Android with Your MDM

This is an important and foundational step to ensure that GroundControl, the Locker app, and your MDM are communicating with each other correctly. See the Imprivata Locker Android Registration article.

Step 3 – Create Workflows

Workflows are collections of settings and assets to deploy to devices. A Workflow may contain several types of actions and can be deployed to a connected device either manually (On-Demand) or automatically (Rule Based, on connect, which can be enabled via the Automation tab). See the Create & Edit Workflows article.

Step 3a – Create Check In Workflow

For more information, see Check In Device Actions.

Step 3b – Create Check Out Workflow

For more information, see Basic Checkout Workflow – Android.

Step 4 – Automate the Workflows

After you create Check In and Check Out Workflows, set up your automation rules to deploy them to your devices.  For more information, see Configure Basic Checkout Automation.

Wrapping up

At the end of this you’ll be able to successfully check out and check in your Android device. To learn more about what else you can do, such as SSO for Epic Rover, see our documentation.
