This section contains topics for distributing applications to your end users. It also covers configuring certain AirWatch applications, such as VMware Boxer.


Getting Started

If you're just getting started with app management, consult this section for platform-specific prerequisites, supported application types, initial setup, and more.

AirWatch Applications

You can configure extra settings for AirWatch applications from the AirWatch Console. This section covers most of the major applications.

Android for Work Apps

Use AirWatch to push Android for Work public applications to devices. This process includes adding and approving applications for integration between AirWatch and Android for Work from the Google Play Store, which can be accessed from the AirWatch Console.

Native Applications

This section contains topics about native applications. AirWatch groups applications as Native and Web. This design reflects the integration with the VMware Identity Manager system and the Workspace ONE platform.

Web Applications

Web applications provide end-users access to URLs directly from an icon on their devices. The AirWatch system has two types of web applications, SaaS and web links. SaaS applications are applications are integrated with the VMware Identity Manager system. Web links are applications configured solely in the AirWatch Console.

Managing Applications

After adding application you have a number of options for managing them. This section outlines many of the features available to you, for example: access policies, versioning an application, deleting applications, making apps MDM managed, and more.

MAM Features with SDK Functionality

AirWatch apps and wrapped apps can take advantage of a number of advanced app management features, which are covered in this section.

Application Groups

To better enforce application-based compliance rules, consider creating application groups. These groups of apps allow you to later define compliance rules based on a set of particular apps.

Application Compliance

Compliance policies enable you to act upon devices that do not comply with set standards. For example, you can create compliance policies that detect when users install forbidden applications.

Workspace ONE Catalog

Use Workspace ONE as a unified app catalog that provides single sign-on access to internal and public applications.

App Catalog

This section covers how to configure and deploy the app catalog, which is how your end users can access the apps you have recommended or deployed.

Standalone Catalog

Refer to this section if your organization requires a standalone catalog outside the scope of VMware AirWatch Mobile Device Management.

Application Scanning Services

Integrate with an existing third-party app scanning vendor. App reputation services scan network data, including applications, for vulnerabilities and threats to prevent and block malicious attacks to enterprise networks.

Books Management

This section covers uploading and pushing iBooks to iOS devices.

Applications for Samsung Knox

Samsung Knox supports the deployment of internal and public applications.
