The Catalog / General settings page lets you configure several options related to the AirWatch App Catalog. For more information about the app catalog, refer to App Catalog.

  • Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.

Authentication

Setting Description
Require Authentication Require users to log in with their username and password before they can access the app catalog. This option is disabled by default which sets AirWatch to require no authentication to access the app catalog.
Reauthenticate

Select a reauthentication option.

  • Never - Keep User Signed In – Keeps users signed in and does not require them to log in each time.
  • After XX day(s) – Require users to authenticate (log in) after a set number of days.

Users still have to reauthenticate if they clear cookies on their devices, even with this option enabled.
