When building a configuration with ManageXR, you can assign a list of WiFi networks to your device's list of remembered networks. This is a great way to connect your devices to a nearby network without physically putting them on and manually entering credentials inside the headset. It's also an excellent tool for provisioning headsets in bulk that are going to be shipped off-site for a deployment.
⚠️Important: You must first be connected to a network in order for your devices to receive the deployed WiFi network credentials.
Let's take a look at how to create a WiFi network and assign it to a Configuration inside of ManageXR.
First, navigate to the WiFi Networks tab.
Once on the WiFi Networks page, the left-hand side will include all networks that have been saved to your ManageXR account.

💡Note: ManageXR will always let you add a WiFi network to a configuration. This means you've successfully saved WiFi credentials to the configuration, but doesn't necessarily mean the credentials were correct. If your credentials are incorrect, the device(s) will be unable to connect to the network when in range. Always ensure the device has successfully connected to the specified network when applicable.
That's it! The updated configuration will provide network credentials to all devices that are assigned to it.
