Walkthrough


Your sandbox is your personal Workspace ONE UEM playground where you can create accounts, profiles, build out organization groups, configure apps, and access advanced admin settings. You will be able to make custom admin configurations in the Workspace ONE UEM console and then enroll devices to see the corresponding features on the device. 

First, you'll need to turn on your sandbox within the TestDrive portal. To do so navigate to the TestDrive portal at portal.vmtestdrive.com. Next, click Log In in the top right.

Enrollment

In order to enroll your device at your sandbox, please replace the 'cn' portion of your console URL with 'ds' (e.g. Enrollment URL for https://cn1206.awmdm.com is https://ds1206.awmdm.com; Exception: AW400.awmdm.com)

Note: To enroll a device, make sure you've first added a user account which is detailed in the section above.

First, you'll need to identify the Group ID for your sandbox. This information is found under Enrollment Details in the expanded Workspace ONE UEM tile in the TestDrive portal.
