When deploying the Workspace ONE application as a managed application in AirWatch and you enable Send Application Configurations when you push the Workspace ONE app from the AirWatch console, you can preconfigure Workspace ONE settings that are applied when users install and launch the Workspace ONE app.

When the Workspace ONE application is uploaded to the AirWatch admin console as a managed mobile application, you can automatically configure the VMware Workspace ONE Server URL, the device UID value, and requirement for certificate authentication in Android devices.

<Android app certificate alias value>

Note: This value is the UUID for the credentials profile you configured for your Android for Work integration

Identifies the certificate VMware Workspace ONE uses when using certificates to authenticate when integrated with Android for Work.

iOS

SkipDiscoveryScreen

Boolean

True

Beginning with the Workspace ONE application version 3.1, the SkipDiscoveryScreen configuration key can be configured.

When set to True, Workspace ONE automatically tries to move past the email address/server URL screen. When used with the AppServiceHost configuration key, users are immediately taken to the authentication screen. If mobile SSO is also used, admins can provide end users with a seamless experience whereby they launch Workspace ONE and immediately begin loading their Workspace ONE app.
