Bulk register devices

You can register your devices in bulk by uploading a CSV file in Fleet. This process enables you to quickly register and add information for multiple devices. A template is available for download in Fleet, which allows you to add device information, such as the unique identifier, device name, location, and so on.

Complete the following procedure to register devices in bulk.
