Specify file type permissions by creating a whitelist or blacklist for AirWatch Managed, Corporate File Server, and Personal content. This restriction hides blocked file types based on their extension from being visible in the AirWatch Console or within Content Locker and so prevents them from being downloaded or uploaded to Content Repositories.

  1. Navigate to Content > Settings > Advanced > File Extensions.
  2. Set the Allowed File Extensions.
    Setting Description
    Whitelist Enter the file extensions you want to include. Separate extensions using a new line, a comma, or a space.
    Blacklist Enter the file extensions you want to exclude. Separate extensions with a line break, a comma, or a space.
    All Select to allow any file type for upload or sync.
  3. Select Save to apply the configuration.

    Once restrictions are applied, you can anticipate the following responses.
