Set up a mobile device management (MDM) solution and assign devices in Apple School Manager
You can manage your Apple customer number and Reseller IDs by adding or deleting supplier information as necessary. For example, a large institution may have more than one Apple customer number. If you do not add these during enrolment, you can add them at any time after that.
If you purchase devices through participating Apple Authorised Resellers or carriers, you must complete all three steps below so that orders placed with that reseller or carrier appear in Apple School Manager:
Send your Organisation ID to the participating Apple Authorised Reseller or carrier and confirm that they have received it.
Add the Reseller ID of your participating Apple Authorised Reseller or carrier to your supplier list.
Arrange with your participating Apple Authorised Reseller or carrier to submit your orders to Apple through their portal (this will not happen automatically).
Important: If you do not know the Reseller ID of your participating Apple Authorised Reseller or carrier, contact them for assistance.
Use Setup Assistant to enter your device purchase information
In Apple School Manager , click Add next to Add Institution Details, then select Find Devices.
Choose one of the following:
Enter Apple customer number
Enter Reseller ID
Enter the appropriate information, then click Continue.
If you provided an Apple customer number, Apple will verify that it matches your institution and then post your devices to Apple School Manager.
