Device Provisioning on an Account

Device Provisioning allows you to onboard and provision your devices.
Once the provisioning credentials are entered, Poly Lens will automatically generate a unique provisioning service address for your Poly Lens account. You may then use your Poly Lens account provisioning credentials in conjunction with a DHCP server or by manually entering your credentials into the provisioning server settings within individual Poly devices.
Note: Once Device Provisioning has been set up, the provisioning credential information is retained. You are able to disable, enable and edit the server credentials at any time.

When a device utilizes Poly Lens provisioning credentials:

  • The device will be added to your Poly Lens account inventory.
  • The device software version will be upgraded (as needed) to a Poly Lens-capable version.
  • Device configuration will be modified to enable Poly Lens management and insights.
