To apply settings and manage your organization's Microsoft Windows devices through Google endpoint management, the devices must be enrolled in Windows device management.
Do you need to manually enroll devices?
How you enroll devices depends on whether you install Google Credential Provider for Windows (GCPW):
- If you install GCPW on a device, you don't need to manually enroll the device and can skip the following instructions. GCPW automatically enrolls the device in Windows device management when the user first signs in with their Google Account unless you disable automatic enrollment.
- If you don't install GCPW, follow these instructions to enroll the device.
Before you can enroll devices:
- Enable Windows device management.
- You must have administrator privileges on the Windows 10 device. See Set account permissions on Windows 10 devices.
- The device must have Windows 10 Pro, Pro for Workstations, Enterprise, or Education, version 1803 or later.
- The user account you use to enroll the device must have a Google Workspace or Cloud Identity license that supports Windows device management (listed at the top of this article). To review which license a user has, open their user details in the Admin console.
