This section contains topics for creating and integrating user accounts. AirWatch manages devices by keeping track of the users of each device. Therefore, you must create and integrate user accounts for devices to enroll into AirWatch. Likewise, administrator accounts must be created and assigned so admins can easily manage users and devices from the AirWatch Console.

 

User Authentication Types

View the different types of user authentication that are supported. Smaller deployments may opt to use basic authentication and manually create each user. Larger deployments can integrate with an existing directory infrastructure to import users.

Basic User Accounts

Create basic user accounts in AirWatch for your end users if you are not integrating with a directory service. You can also quickly create basic accounts for testing purposes.

Directory-Based User Accounts

Integrating with an existing directory service lets you pull in users automatically. It eliminates the need of having to add users manually to the AirWatch Console.

Batch Import Feature

Use the batch import feature, which lets you create and import a batch upload list. This list contains all of your end users' information, so you do not have to add it all manually or import them one at a time.

User Accounts List View

Use the User Accounts List View page to manage users. You can initiate user-related actions from this page, as well as edit or manage existing users. You can also filter users by criteria and send them messages.

Admin Accounts

Create and manage AirWatch administrator accounts. These are the users who can log in to the AirWatch Console to manage users, devices, apps, and content. It also covers how to create temporary admin accounts for limited access.

Role-Based Access

Set up default or custom roles to limit the capabilities of your administrators based on their specific function or role. You can also create roles for your end users, which controls what they are able to perform from the Self-Service Portal.
