AirWatch supports integration with a variety of corporate file servers. The syncing method support and requirement of the Content Gateway component vary by repository type.

Available Sync Methods

Review the available syncing methods for repositories:

  • Admin – Refers to a repository that gets fully configured and synced by an Administrator in the AirWatch Console.
  • Automatic – Refers to a repository that gets configured by an Administrator in the AirWatch Console, but gets synced by end users on their devices.
  • Manual – Refers to a repository that gets enabled in the AirWatch Console, but relies on the end user to manually add the link and sync the repository on their device.
