Register domain with Google

In the first stage of the procedure to set up Android enterprise for your organization, you register a domain with Google (Managed Google Domain), create a domain administrator (Managed Google Account) and verify your domain ownership.

Note If you already have a Managed Google Domain, for example because you have signed up for G Suite (formerly Google Apps), you can skip this section.
  1. Click the following link to sign up for a Managed Google Domain.
  2. Fill the web form with the required information.
    • Under About your business, enter the domain that will be used as the Managed Google Domain in the Business domain address field. For example, you could use the domain of your Sophos Mobile server.
      Note If you want to configure Android enterprise for more than one customer in Sophos Mobile, you need a separate domain for each customer.
    • Under Your Google admin account, enter the credentials for a new domain administrator.
      Note Make a note of the credentials as you will need them later in the setup procedure.
  3. Click the button to create the domain administrator account.
    This opens the Google Admin console.
  4. In the Google Admin console, start the procedure to verify your domain ownership.
    Follow the instructions provided by Google to verify your domain.
After your domain ownership is verified, you receive a token to connect your Managed Google Domain with your third-party EMM provider, that is, with Sophos Mobile.
Next, you must create a Google service account and configure the relevant Google APIs. See Configure Google service account.
