Create & Edit Workflows

Created: Modified: Documentation

To create a new Workflow, navigate to the Workflows tab and Click on New Workflow. From this page, you can also organize your workflows by creating folders.


There are three types of Workflow Models:

  1. Device Enrollment Program (DEP): Use with devices that are enrolled in Apple’s Business Manager/ Device Enrollment Program
  2. Supervised, Non-DEP: Use with devices that are not enrolled in Apple Business Manager
  3. Disconnected Device (OTA): This workflow model allows for over-the-air actions that can be performed on devices while not connected to GroundControl, including: Perform MDM Commands, Set Attributes, Send Webhook, Send Email. Today, OTA workflows can only be deployed manually, per device Device Details view.

To edit an existing Workflow, click on its row to jump to it, and click the Edit Workflow button:

Adding actions to a Workflow

The new and edit screens enable you to customize your Workflows. Simply select an action in the “Add an action” menu to add it to a Workflow; Workflows can contain multiple actions. You must enter a Workflow name, and save it to be able to deploy it to a device.

Please note the supervision action is automatically added when actions that require it are added to a Workflow. For example, if you want to set the name on your devices, GroundControl will automatically supervise the device. More on the supervision options here.

Visit the section on Workflow Actions for extensive documentation on individual commands.
