Resources simplify the provisioning of Wi-Fi, VPN, and Exchange payloads for AirWatch deployments that support multiple device platforms, such as iOS, Android, and Windows.
Create a resource for any of these payloads and define the general settings each device platform receives. You can then optionally configure platform-specific settings that apply only to those devices.
Resources are defined, managed, and deployed separately from device profiles. Deploy resources alongside device profiles to provide deep and broad device management for all supported platforms in your deployment.
You do not have to use resources to deploy Wi-Fi, VPN, or Exchange settings. If you choose, you can still create separate device profiles for these payloads for each platform. Consider deploying resources when you expect the Wi-Fi, VPN, or Exchange settings to be identical or similar across platforms. Then, create additional device profiles as usual to manage functionality further for each platform.
All Your Resources
The Resources List View enables you to add, filter (active, inactive, or all), view, edit, and delete resources. For more information, see Resources List View.
Add a Resource
Adding a resource you can apply across multiple devices means first deciding in advance what kind of resource you need, Exchange (Email), VPN, or Wi-Fi. For more information, see the following topics.
