Credentials for Multiple Repositories

If your repositories require authentication, Workspace ONE UEM uses one set of credentials to communicate between the Content Gateway and your repositories. For this feature to work, use a common set of credentials for the Content Gateway to communicate with your repositories.

Add one set of credentials for your repositories you configured with the Content Gateway. For details, see Enable the External App Repository.

See Add Internal Applications From External Repositories for an explanation of how to upload the application to Workspace ONE UEM.
