The AirWatch Console provides a simplified wizard to streamline the directory services setup process. The wizard includes steps to integrate either Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML), Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) or both.

The wizard also automates the provisioning of AirWatch applications to VMware Identity Manager, greatly simplifying the process.

For more information about integrating AirWatch with Identity Manager and deploying Workspace ONE with single sign-on to devices, see the Workspace ONE Quick Configuration Guide, available at

  1. Access the directory services setup wizard from two places.
  • The main AirWatch Console Getting Started Wizard.


  • Navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Enterprise Integration > Directory Services and select Launch Setup Wizard.


  1. Upon launching the wizard, select Configure to follow the steps. Alternately, you can Skip wizard and configure manually to configure settings on your own.

If SAML or LDAP settings are already configured on your directory services server, the AirWatch Console detects it automatically.
