Device serial numbers

Cloudflare for Teams allows you to build Zero Trust rules based on device serial numbers. You can create these rules so that access to applications is granted only to users connecting from company devices.

To create rules based on device serial numbers you'll need to create a list of numbers using the Lists functionality in the Teams Dashboard.

  1. On the Teams dashboard, navigate to Configuration > Lists.

  2. Click Create manual list or Upload CSV. For larger teams, we recommend uploading a CSV or using Cloudflare's API endpoint.

    Add List

  3. Give your list a descriptive name, as this name will appear when configuring your Access policies.

    Create List

  4. Set List Type to Serial Number.

  5. Input the serial numbers of the devices your team manages, or upload your CSV file.

    Add Serial Number

  6. Click Save.

    Once saved, the serial number list will appear in your list view.

    Saved List

Now you can create or update an existing Access policy to require that any device requesting access belongs to your list of serial numbers.

To do that:

  1. Navigate to Access > Applications.

  2. To add to an existing application, choose the specific resource from the Applications page in the Access section of the sidebar.

  3. Click Edit.

    App List

  4. Select the Rules tab and edit an existing rule. To add a new rule, click Add a Rule.

    Edit App

  5. Add a Require rule and choose Device Posture - Serial Number List from the drop-down menu.

  6. Choose the list of devices to require and click Save rule.

    Add Require

Once saved, any device attempting to reach the application will need to connect from a device that uses Cloudflare WARP and presents a serial number in the list created.
