Web applications function much like an application on a device. They provide end-users a way to access a URL directly from an icon on menu of their device. The end-user sees the Web application icon and title, selects the application, and connects directly to a specified URL.
Web applications are useful for navigation to extended URLs with many characters. You can place Web application icons on the springboard. These icons connect end-users to internal content repositories or login screens, so end-users do not open a browser and type out a long URL.
You can add Web applications using two methods.
As an application in the Apps & Books section of the AirWatch Console.
As a device profile in the Devices section of the AirWatch Console.
See the applicable platform guide for the profile you want to push.
- Bookmark profiles – Android
- Web clip profiles – Apple iOS, macOS, and Windows Desktop
