To authenticate users before they register their Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub iOS and Android devices in Workspace ONE UEM, in Workspace ONE Access enable UEM Token as the authentication method. In the Workspace ONE UEM console, change the source of authentication from Workspace ONE UEM to Workspace ONE Access.

In the Workspace ONE UEM service, a registration token is created when users register their devices in Workspace ONE UEM. If UEM Token authentication is not enabled in Workspace ONE Access, users are authenticated in the Workspace ONE UEM service. After which users are required to authenticate again with Workspace ONE Access.

When UEM Token authentication is enabled, Workspace ONE Access is used to identify and authenticate users’ devices that are in registered mode. Android devices, which do not have a Workspace ONE UEM certificate at the time of enrollment, are also identified and authenticated.

The Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub app coordinates between the Workspace ONE UEM service and the Workspace ONE Access tenants to confirm the user and validity of the UEM enrollment token.

Note: UEM Token authentication works with Workspace ONE UEM version 2210 and later.
