How to deprovision devices in bulk


How can you deprovision several devices at once?


  • Chrome OS
  • Admin Console
  • Devices


  1. Log in to the Admin console.
  2. Go to Devices > Chrome devices.
  3. At the top, use the filter to select the current status of the device that you want to deprovision.
  4. To apply the setting to everyone, leave the top organizational unit selected. Otherwise, select a child organizational unit.
  5. Check the box next to the device that you want to deprovision. If you’re deprovisioning multiple devices for different reasons, deprovision them in groups, depending on the reason.
  6. At the top, click Deprovision selected devices.
  7. Specify whether devices automatically factory reset. Choose an option:
    • Yes, factory reset to remove all data including user profiles, device policies, and enrollment data.
    • No, keep existing data and user profiles.
  8. Check the box to confirm that you understand the actions to re-enroll a device.
  9. Select your deprovisioning reason. See the table below for guidelines.
    Note: If there are annual upgrades on the account, or if all devices selected are Chrome Enterprise devices, you do not have to select any deprovisioning reason.

Note: Requires having the Chrome administrator privilege.
