The Quick Rig tool lets you quickly add a rig to a biped character mesh. You can use this tool two ways: using the automatic function or a step-by-step workflow. While the automatic One-Click option is good for standard character meshes, the Step-by-Step option gives you more control over the automated rigging process.
See Create an automatic character rig for a mesh for an explanation of how to use the automated rigging process.
