Configure Content Gateway settings in the AirWatch Console to establish a node and pre-configure the settings files that get bundled into the installer, eliminating the need to manually configure them post-installation on the server. Configuration includes selecting the platform, configuration model, associated ports, and if required, uploading an SSL certificate.

Perform the following steps to configure the Content Gateway.

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Content > Content Gateway in the Organization Group of your choice.

  2. Set Enable the Content Gateway to Enabled.

    You may need to select Override to unlock Content Gateway settings.

  3. Click Add.
  4. Complete the fields that appear to configure a Content Gateway instance.

    Setting Description
    Platform Select the Operating System for the Content Gateway server.
    Choose Configuration Type

    Select one of the following configuration types:

    • Basic – Endpoint configuration with no relay component.
    • AirWatch Relay – Endpoint configuration with a relay component.
    Name Provide a unique name used to select this Content Gateway instance when attaching it to a Content Repository, Repository Template or RFS Node.
    Content Gateway Relay Address If implementing a relay configuration, enter the URL used to access the Content Gateway Relay from the Internet.
    Content Gateway Relay Port If implementing a relay configuration, enter the relay server port.
    Content Gateway Endpoint Address Enter the host name of the Content Gateway endpoint. The Public SSL certificate bound on the configured port must be valid for this entry.
    Content Gateway Endpoint Port Enter the endpoint server port.
    Use Public SSL Certificate

    If required, upload a PKCS12 (.pfx) certificate file with a full chain for the Content Gateway Installer to bind to the port. The full chain includes a passworod, server certificate, intermediate(s), root certificate, and a private key.

    Requirements vary by platform and SSL configuration.

    Upload No Opt out of SSL Offloading when prompted during installation.
    Upload Optional Yes Select SSL Offloading when prompted during installation.

    *This field does not display when configuring Windows Content Gateway. Windows uses IIS and does not require a Public SSL certificate.

    Ignore SSL Errors If using a self-signed certificate, consider enabling this feature. If enabled, Content Gateway ignores certificate trust errors and certificate name mismatches.
