Use AirWatch to identify those applications that failed an app scan. AirWatch lists them in blacklisted app groups. The system prevents access to applications in blacklisted app groups for security. Deactivate a group if you know the applications are secure for use.

Representing Appthority Rules

AirWatch creates blacklisted app groups by platform. If you have six Appthority rules that identify issues, AirWatch displays six blacklisted app groups for Android and six blacklisted app groups for Apple iOS. It displays a total of 12. It is not possible to edit the app group information because AirWatch imports the data.

Access Blacklisted App Groups

You can identify your results by the Created By column on the App Groups page. The column labels blacklisted app groups created by app scan integration as Appthority. View your Appthority scan results using the listed procedure.

  1. Ensure that you are in the correct organization group.
  2. Navigate to Apps & Books > Applications > Application Settings > App Groups.
  3. Use the Created By filter to sort the list by Appthority.
  4. Select the Name and view the applications included in the app group list. This list includes the blacklisted application, its application ID, and the version.
  5. Select Edit from the actions menu and add notes to the Description text box on the Assignment tab.
  6. Select Finish if you added a description.

Deactivate Blacklisted App Groups

If the system blacklisted an application that you need, deactivate Appthority blacklisted app groups in AirWatch. Deactivation is the only way to revert the blacklisted status without reconfiguring integration.

  1. Ensure that you are in the correct organization group.
  2. Navigate to Apps & Books > Applications > Application Settings > App Groups.
  3. Locate the blacklisted app group with the needed application.
  4. Select the drop-down icon from the actions menu and select Deactivate.

Results of Deactivation

Deactivation results in the listed AirWatch behaviors.

  • AirWatch does not display them in the list when you build your compliance policy.
  • AirWatch removes the deactivated group from all compliance policies.
