For on-premises customers, AirWatch has updated the logic for how to search for public Android applications from the Google Play Store for the purpose of deploying applications.

Google Play integration requires certain ports for communication. For port numbers and other architecture information, see On-Premises Architecture Network Requirements.

To enable this functionality, enter placeholder data (for example, "AcmeUser", "AcmePassword", "AcmeID") in the fields on the Google Play Integration settings page.

  1. Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > Device & Users > Android > Google Play Integration.

  2. Complete the form for a Phone or a Tablet, or both, with the applicable information.

    Setting Description
    Google account username Enter a placeholder Google Account user name.
    Google account password Enter a placeholder Google Account password.
    Android Device ID Enter a placeholder Android Device ID to provide the system with access to all applications in the Google Play Store.

If you used placeholder data, Test Connection may not verify a successful integration. This is normal behavior and your ability to search for public Android apps should not be affected.
