After the identity provider is configured as an application source, web applications that use the SAML 2.0 authentication profile can be added to the Workspace ONE catalog.


Third-party identity provider configured as an application source in the Catalog > Settings page.


  1. Log in to the VMware Identity Manager administration console.
  2. Click the Catalog > Web Apps tab.
  3. Click New
  4. Complete the information on the Definition page, and click Next.
    Form Item Description
    Name Enter the name of the application.
    Description (Optional) Add a description of the application.
    Icon (Optional) To add an icon that displays in the users Workspace ONE application page, click Choose File to upload an icon.

    PNG, JPG, and ICON file formats, up to 4 MB, are supported. Uploaded icons are resized to 80px X 80px.

    To prevent distortion, upload icons where the height and width are equal to each other and as close as possible to the 80px X 80px resize dimensions.

  5. In the Configuration page, Authentication Type drop-down menu select the application source for this application. Enter the target URL for the application.
    This URL is either the identity provider URL for the application as represented in the application source or the service provider URL.
    The configuration is populated with the application source configuration values.
  6. On the Access Policies page either verify that the default access policy meets the requirements for this application or select another access policy from the drop-down menu.
    See the VMware Identity Manager Administration guide, Managing Access Policies section.


The application is added to the Workspace ONE catalog and users can access the application from their Workspace ONE portal.

What to do next

If users are assigned to the application source, they are automatically assigned to the application. You can change the users and groups that are assigned to the application.
