To control the deployment of internal applications, add a single assignment or multiple assignments . If you add multiple assignments, prioritize the importance of the assignment by moving its place in the list up for most important or down for least important.

  1. Navigate to Apps & Books > Applications > List View > Internal.
  2. Upload an internal application and save the application.
  3. Select Add Assignment and complete the following options:
    Setting Description
    Select Assignment Groups Type a smart group name to select the groups of devices to receive the assignment.
    App Delivery Method
    • On Demand – Deploys content to a catalog or other deployment agent and lets the device user decide if and when to install the content.

      This option is the best choice for content that is not critical to the organization. Allowing users to download the content when they want helps conserve bandwidth and limits unnecessary traffic.

    • Automatic – Deploys content to a catalog or other deployment agent on a device upon enrollment. After the device enrolls, the system prompts users to install the content on their devices.

      This option is the best choice for content that is critical to your organization and its mobile users.

    Deployment Begins On

    Set a day of the month and a time of day for the deployment to start.

    The Priority setting governs which deployments push first. AirWatch then pushes deployments according to the Effective configuration.

    To set a beginning date with enough bandwidth for successful deployment, consider the traffic patterns of your network .





    Windows Desktop

    Windows Phone

    Configure a device profile with a Restrictions profile to set data loss prevention policies for the application.

    Select Configure. The system navigates to Devices > Profiles. Select Add > Add Profile and the platform.

    • For Android and iOS devices, select Restrictions and enable options in the Data Loss Prevention section.
    • For Windows Desktop, select Device Profile > Restrictions and enable options that apply to the data you want to protect.
    • For Windows Phone, select Restrictions and enable options that apply to the data you want to protect.

    Managed Access



    Enable adaptive management to set AirWatch to manage the device so that the device can access the application.

    Workspace ONE controls this feature and is not supported by the AirWatch Catalog.

    Remove on Unenroll


    Set the removal of the application from a device when the device unenrolls from AirWatch.

    Application Backup


    Disallow backing up the application data to iCloud.

    App Tunneling



    Configure a VPN at the application level, and select the Per-App VPN Profile. Users access the application using a VPN, which helps ensure that application access and use is trusted and secure.

    Application Configuration



    Send application configurations to devices.

    Upload XML (Apple iOS) – Select this option to upload an XML file for your iOS applications that automatically populates the key-value pairs. Get the configurations supported by an application from the developer in XML format

  4. Select Add.
  5. Use the Move Up and Move Down options to order assignments if you have more than one. Place critical assignments at the top of the list. This configuration displays as the Priority.

    The Priority setting takes precedence when there are conflicting deployments assigned to a single device.

  6. Select Save & Publish.

Application configurations are vendor-specific key-value pairs you can deploy with an application to preconfigure the application for users. For resources about application configurations, see Application Configuration Information.

For more information about the flexible deployment page, where you can edit schedules for deployments and view settings configured upon upload, see Flexible Deployment for Internal Applications Setting Descriptions.
