This article provides the instructions to an advanced device registration method ideal for bulk-registering devices on Appspace cloud and on-prem via Google CDM (Chrome Device Management). This method is specifically for Chrome users utilizing Google CDM. Once you have CDM configured, the network policy file in place will automatically register in bulk all Chrome devices in your network.
Note
This feature is available for all Chrome OS-based devices. Once you configure Google CDM, the device will be automatically registered with no user intervention upon reboot. For device configuration instructions prior to registration, please refer to: Configure Chrome OS devices with Google Chrome Device Management (CDM).
