Creating Devices

The KIF should receive all inventory as it arrives for storage in your dual controlled cages.
Creating and injecting devices occurs after devices have been pulled off the shelf and physically injected for a client. This is the first step in preparing a virtual shipment. Your key injection team will provide you with a work order outlining the serial number, corresponding tamper label (security seal number) and tracking number.
The portal is designed to create and ship devices orders as they are ticketed to your organization. There are two ways to get started:

  1. Manually add each device. NOTE:A scan gun should be used to ensure accurate records.
  2. Batch Upload
    a. Serial Number Range
    b. Scan Gun
