User-Initiated Enrollment Experience for Computers

When a user accesses the enrollment URL, they are guided through a series of steps to enroll the computer. The steps vary depending on the version of macOS installed on the computer being enrolled. The text in the images may vary depending on if the text or languages are customized in the User-Initiated Enrollment settings. For more information, see User-Initiated Enrollment Settings.
