Apple’s Device Enrollment Program (DEP for short) allows you to automatically setup devices with the settings you need on devices that your organization purchases. In Bushel, we give you the ability to link an Apple DEP account up with your Bushel account. This allows devices to add themselves automatically to your Bushel when the devices are activated. We tend to think this is the coolest thing since sliced bread and so we want to make sure you know how to use the feature.
Setup Device Enrollment Program in Bushel
To get started, log into your Bushel and click on Devices. Here, click the button for Device Enrollment Program.
Download your certificate and go to deploy.apple.com and log into your Device Enrollment Program account. Click on Manage Servers in the Deployment Programs sidebar.
Next, click on Add MDM Server and provide the certificate we gave you and a name. Once Bushel has been added to your Device Enrollment Program (DEP) account, click on Assign by Serial Number to add your first device. Assuming the device is part of your DEP account, enter the serial number for the device and choose which server (the one you just added) that the device should reach out to on activation to pull settings from.
Once you’ve added the server, you’ll be greeted by a screen that says Assignment Complete. You can now wipe the device and upon reactivation the device will pull new settings from your Bushel.

Click OK and you can add more devices. Once your devices are added into the Apple DEP portal they will automatically appear in the DEP screen of your Bushel. Click on a device to assign a username and email address, if you will be using email.
