  3. On the right pane under iOS configuration  Click on Credentials, then click on the star icon to create a new payload.

  4. Click “Select cert file”, and browse to “Identity_Certificate.p12” file you saved earlier.

  5. Fill as below, the password is “password”

  6. On the left pane expand Settings, then click on iOS MDM Enrollment Configuration
  7. On the right pane chose the created payload earlier “Identity Certificate – Identity Certificate for POC enrollment” under Cryptographic credential used for authentication, then click “save Changes”
