Content Gateway (CG) is a component of the Workspace ONE UEM Content Management solution that securely allows access to On-premise repository content on mobile devices.

Prerequisites

You must configure the Content Gateway node using the Workspace ONE UEM console before you can configure Content Gateway on Unified Access Gateway. After configuring the node, note down the Content Gateway Configuration GUID, which is automatically generated. For more information about configuring Content Gateway and the deployment models of Content Gateway, see Content Gateway Deployment Models and Deploy Content Gateway on Unified Access Gateway in the VMware Workspace ONE UEM Product Documentation at VMware Docs.

Note: The acronym CG is also used to refer to Content Gateway.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to General Settings > Edge Service Settings > Content Gateway Settings and click the gearbox icon.
  2. To enable Content Gateway settings, turn on the Enable or disable Content Gateway Settings toggle.
  3. Configure the following settings:
    Option Description
    Identifier Indicates that this service is enabled.
    API Server URL The Workspace ONE UEM API Server URL [http[s]://]hostname[:port]

    The destination URL must contain the protocol, host name or IP address, and port number. For example: https://load-balancer.example.com:8443

    Unified Access Gateway pulls Content Gateway configuration from API server.

    API Server Username User name to log into the API server.
    Note: It is required that the admin account have, at a minimum, the permissions associated with the Content Gateway role.
    API Server Password Password to log into the API server.
    Content Gateway Hostname Host name used to configure edge settings.
    Content Gateway Configuration GUID Workspace ONE UEM Content Gateway configuration ID. This ID is automatically generated when the Content Gateway is configured on the Workspace ONE UEM console. The Configuration GUID is displayed on the Content Gateway page on the UEM console under Settings > Content > Content Gateway.
    Outbound Proxy Host The host where the outbound proxy is installed. Unified Access Gateway makes a connection to API Server through an outbound proxy if configured.
    Outbound Proxy Port Port of the outbound proxy.
    Outbound Proxy Username User name to log into the outbound proxy.
    Outbound Proxy Password Password to log into the outbound proxy.
    NTLM Authentication Specify whether the outbound proxy requires NTLM authentication.
    Trusted Certificates
    • To select a certificate in PEM format and add to the trust store, click +.
    • To provide a different name, edit the alias text box.

      By default, the alias name is the filename of the PEM certificate.

    • To remove a certificate from the trust store, click -.
    Host Entries Enter the details to be added in /etc/hosts file. Each entry must include an IP, a hostname, and an optional hostname alias in that order, separated by a space. For example, 10.192.168.1 example1.com, 10.192.168.2 example2.com example-alias. Click '+' to add multiple host entries.
    Important: The host entries are saved only after you click Save.
    Note: HTTP traffic is not allowed for Content Gateway on port 80 on Unified Access Gateway, because TCP port 80 is used by the edge Service Manager.
  4. Click Save.
