After obtaining an SSL certificate, register your domain for Auto-Discovery in the AirWatch Console. The registered domain connects end-user email addresses to the enrollment credentials.

To register a domain:

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Devices & Users > Windows > Windows Auto-Discovery.
  2. Set the Auto Discovery Mode to Cloud Hosted.
  3. Select Register Domain for Windows Auto-Discovery.


  4. Select the Domain for which you want to register WADS. If you have not yet created a domain, select Register a new domain. For more information on setting up an email domain, see Add a Domain to AirWatch.
  5. Create a CNAME Record by following the steps on the screen.
  6. Select Upload to add your SSL certificate.


    For cloud-hosted WADS, AirWatch only accepts a domain-specific certificate and not a wildcard certificate.

  7. Select Save.
  8. Confirm that your domain is properly added and registered and select Save.

It may take up to 30 minutes to register the domain for cloud-hosted WADS.
