Scan to Login - Admin Guide

Version 13

    Overview

    To ease account administration for large organizations, AppGallery 2.3 implements Scan to Login. This feature permits an unlimited number of users to access a specific group of apps (a Collection) from a single login that's activated simply by using the barcode scanner or camera of a Zebra device. If an enterprise chooses, once a device is logged in through the generated barcode, that device can enter a "lock-down" mode where it will only have access to applications that the enterprise sees fit are needed for its company devices; thus improving device security and efficiency.

     

    For the AppGallery administrator, this guide explains how to create and distribute the scannable log-in image. For the user or user-administrator, please refer to Mobile App Login, Scan to Login. This guide requires a working knowledge of Creating a Collection and Creating a User. Before beginning, at least one Collection and user account with access to that Collection must exist.

     

    IMPORTANT
    After using the Scan-to-Login feature, a device is permanently associated with the Collection(s) attached to the barcode, and all users with access to that device also will have access to those Collection(s). To disassociate a device from a Collection, AppGallery must be removed from the device and reinstalled.
