The Password (Workspace ONE UEM) authentication method authenticates using AirWatch Cloud Connector through the Workspace ONE UEM service. You enable User Password Authentication through Workspace ONE UEM in the Workspace ONE Access console Integrations > UEM Integration page and associate it to a built-in identity provider.

Important: The Password Authentication with Workspace ONE UEM authentication method does not work when Workspace ONE UEM is unreachable or unavailable for any reason, including planned maintenance and unplanned outages.

After you associate the authentication methods in the built-in identity provider, you create access policies to apply to this authentication method.


  1. In the Workspace ONE Access console Integrations > Authentication Methods page, select Password (with Workspace ONE UEM) and click CONFIGURE.
  2. Review the configuration.
