Content Gateway (CG) is a component of the VMware AirWatch Content Management solution that securely allows access to On-premise repository content on mobile devices.
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. See the Configure a Content Gateway Node section in the VMware Workspace ONE UEM documentation for detailed information.
The acronym CG is also used to refer to Content Gateway.
You can also refer to the following documentation for Content Gateway architecture and security overview:

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
VMware AirWatch 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 .
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

Enter the details to be added in /etc/hosts file. Each entry should 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.
