You can manage access to applications that require an approval from your organization before the app can be used. You enable Approvals from the Catalog Settings page and configure the URL to receive the approval request.

When you add applications that require approval to the catalog, you enable the Licensing option. When the licensing option is configured, users view the application in their Workspace ONE catalog and request use of the application.

VMware Identity Manager sends the approval request message to the organization's configured approval URL. The server workflow process reviews the request and sends back an approved or denied message. See the Manage Application Approvals in the VMware Identity Manager guide for configuration steps.

You can view the VMware Identity Manager resource usage and resource entitlements reports to see the number of approved applications being used.
