Distributing settings to devices

After you have created a project with the desired host profile and settings, distribute it to your devices. Distributing a project has two steps:

1.Deploy the project from the Console. This takes all the settings, files, and scripts and uses them to create a .wldep file. If you are using Speakeasy with languages other than English or Spanish, deploying a project also creates a .wlvpk file that contains the speech-to-text files for a selected language. If you use a Global settings project type, it is deployed as a .wlxgp file. Distribute one global settings file to each device in addition to your regular deployment files. For information on how to deploy, see Deploying a project.

2.Distribute the file (or files) to the devices using one of the following methods:

(Android only) Use a Scan to Config profile. Use the Velocity Console as a web server to transfer the files to the device. The Console creates a QR code that the device scans to connect and retrieve the deployment files. For more information, see Using a Scan to Config profile.

Use mobile device management (MDM) software like Ivanti Avalanche. For information on using an MDM to distribute the files, see Distributing settings using MDMs.

Over USB. For information on copying the files to the device over USB, see Distributing settings over USB. This may require a separate app for devices running Android 10 or newer.

(Android only) Use NFC to share the files. If you've already deployed projects to a device, use the Tap to Share feature to share the configuration to another device with Velocity installed. For more information, see Using Tap to Share.
