AirWatch has two methods that sync managed distribution content: By assets and by license. The assets function syncs the metadata on an sToken and claimed licenses information. The license function syncs information for a single asset. It is useful for sTokens that contain thousands of licenses and you only want to sync the licenses applied to one asset.

Sync Assets

  1. Go to the organization group where you uploaded the sToken.
  2. Navigate to one of the following areas:
    • Apps & Books > Applications > Native > Purchased
    • Apps & Books > Books > List View > Purchased
  3. Select Sync Assets.

  4. Confirm to register an sToken with AirWatch, if applicable. The system prompts for registration if it detects an sToken is used in another environment.
  5. To check that the sync completed, refresh the screen.

    AirWatch syncs purchased asset meta data and if there are claimed licenses, the system syncs for those assets of the claimed licenses. AirWatch makes the sync features inaccessible until reconciliation completes.

Sync Licenses

  1. Go to the organization group where you uploaded the sToken.
  2. Navigate to one of the following areas:
    • Apps & Books > Applications > Native > Purchased
    • Apps & Books > Books > List View > Purchased
  3. Select the asset check box and select Sync Licenses option from the actions menu.
