You can use Group Policy configuration to set which mode, standalone mode or integration mode, VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console runs in and to control if the Management Console provides the option for you to switch between modes.

Enabling the Workspace ONE UEM Integration policy setting from the VMware DEM Management Console.admx template allows you to set which mode the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console runs in. You can use the following policy options with this policy setting.

Policy Option Description
Mode Select the mode you want the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console to run in.
  • Integrated, for integration with Workspace ONE UEM.
  • Standalone
Enforced Select Enforced to prevent overriding the mode that VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console runs in.

Without the Enforced option selected, you can use the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console to switch between modes.

If you select Enforced, the following conditions and behaviors apply.

  • The configuration dialog in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console does not display the controls for configuring the mode.
  • In standalone mode, the Save As and Extract options are not available in the main menu, an encircled star, the main menu icon.
  • If command-line options are specified that implicitly or explicitly specify the mode not currently in use, an error message appears and the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console exits.
Note: Enabling the Workspace ONE UEM Integration policy setting while the Environments or Lock down access to VMware DEM Management Console policy settings are configured, results in the following behavior.
  • The configuration dialog in the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console is not available, which is the existing behavior when the Environments or Lock down access to VMware DEM Management Console policy setting is defined.
  • The Save As and Extract options are available in the main menu, an encircled star, the main menu icon, unless standalone mode is enforced through the Workspace ONE UEM Integration policy setting.
  • If command-line options are specified that implicitly or explicitly specify integration mode, or if the Workspace ONE UEM Integration policy setting is set to integration mode, an error message appears and the VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Management Console exits.
