The Self-Enrollment option allows users to download a customized installer without the need for an Enrollment code. When used with your own form, the Self-Enrollment process allows you to design your own enrollment form (and optional paywall) and define the Groups your end users' computers will report to.
1. Enabling Self-Enrollment
To enable the Self-Enrollment URL, visit the Enrollment Options section of the Installers page on your dashboard.
Click on the Self-Enrollment tab.
Click Enable codeless Self-Enrollment and Save Changes.
To ensure codeless Self-Enrollment forms are only accesed from your web site, you can whitelist your domain. Click Restrict Self-Enrollment to Trusted Domains, enter at least one domain, and click Save.

<iframe id="enrollment-embed" src="https://yoursubdomain.monitoringclient.com/self-enroll?embed=" width="550" height="550" frameborder="0"></iframe>
2.2.1. Passing values to iFrame
<iframe id="enrollment-embed" src="https://yoursubdomain.monitoringclient.com/self-enroll?embed=" width="550" height="550" frameborder="0"></iframe> <script>var params = window.location.search.substring(1); document.getElementById('enrollment-embed').src = 'https://yoursubdomain.monitoringclient.com/self-enroll?embed=true&'+ params;</script>
email= firstname= lastname= group=
Adding &submit=true will automatically submit the form, if all of the fields are provided values.
When redeemed, a new Note will be created for the computer with the name and email address entered upon redemption.
Packages are built on demand and require time to be notarized. The timing until Apple notarizes the installer can result in a warning dialog when the user installs the package before notarization is complete. Presently, if the user waits and then attempts installation a few minutes later, the notarization check will complete and installation will complete without issue.
