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.


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.

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


  1. Navigate to General Settings > Edge Service Settings > Content Gateway Settings and click the gearbox icon.
  2. Select YES to enable Content Gateway settings.
  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:

    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.
    CG Hostname Host name used to configure edge settings.
    CG 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 Add a trusted certificate to this edge service. Click '+' to select a certificate in PEM format and add to the trust store. Click '-' to remove a certificate from the trust store. By default, the alias name is the filename of the PEM certificate. Edit the alias text box to give a different name.
    Host Entries 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,, 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.
