You can integrate your AirWatch Cloud Connector with the VMware Identity Manager service for user password authentication. You can configure the VMware Identity Manager service to sync users from the AirWatch directory instead of deploying a VMware Identity Manager connector.

To implement AirWatch Cloud Connector authentication, you enable AirWatch Cloud Connector Password Authentication in the built-in identity provider page in the VMware Identity Manager admin console.


AirWatch Cloud Connector must be configured on AirWatch version 8.3 and later for authentication with VMware Identity Manager.

User name and password authentication are integrated into the AirWatch Cloud Connector deployment. To authenticate users using other VMware Identity Manager-supported authentication methods, the VMware Identity Manager connector must be configured.
