It's really easy to use.
So let's start with the source MDM solution. You can see that I have a device waiting to be migrated.......
......and this is the EBF Onboarder. Click on New Migration to start.
Enter a name for the migration. Be creative.
Now we're asked to choose the source MDM system. The following solutions are supported sources:
- Blackberry UEM
- MobileIron Core (VSP)
- MobileIron Core (EAS unmanaged)
- MobileIron Cloud
- Good for Enterprise
- SAP Afaria
- Sophos Mobile Control
- Cisco Meraki
- SOTI MobiControl
- jamf PRO
Enter credentials for the source system.
Microsoft Intune is the default target system. Enter your credentials. We only need to enter the tenant ID if the user has access to multiple tenants.
Click Find Devices.
EBF Onboarder connects to the source system and lists the device(s) that we need. Click Save Migration.
Confirm that you want to Save the migration project.
You are presented with the content of the migration email that will be sent to users. This can be customized. Save the email.....
...and here is the migration. Check the box beside the users name and you can then select Send Invitations. This is so simple to use.
Now lets have a look at the behaviour on this Android device.
The user receives the invitation from EBF Onboarder for Intune.
The user opens the email and clicks on the Start Migration link.
The user is re-directed to the Onboarder service and asked to select Start Migration.
The first step is to retire the device from the source system. It's alarmingly quick (approximately 30 seconds).
Retirement is complete and now the user in invited to enrol with Intune. They are instructed to follow the Microsoft Intune link.
The user is re-directed to Google Play store and asked to download and install the Microsoft Intune Company Portal. We're familiar with the rest of the process at this stage.
User authenticates with Intune.........
.....and continues with the setup process.
The device is being added to Intune.
Enrollment is complete.
The device is available for management in the Intune portal.
The two-step retire/registration process on the device took less than five minutes and was very straightforward for the user to understand and follow. I was very impressed.
You can sign up for a trial on the EBF website The trial allows you to migrate 20 devices from multiple source systems and only expires when the 20 have been migrated.
I hope you found this blog post interesting. Until next time.........
