How to include a SCEP server

During the MDM configuration,  a certificate authority that uses the Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol (SCEP) was established. This ensures that certificates for those mobile devices managed with Mobile Device Man­agement are requested and issued automatically. You can use these self-generated certificates for a proof of concept.

  •  SCEP server challenge URL: Enter here the URL, from which the challenge password will be read: http://< SCEP_server_address>/certsrv/mscep_admin (example:
  •  SCEP server challenge pattern: This is the search pattern for reading the challenge password. With Windows SCEP servers keep the default value.
