VMware Workspace ONE UEM powered by AirWatch™ provides you with a robust set of mobility management solutions for enrolling, securing, configuring, and managing your Chrome OS device deployment.

Chrome OS is a Linux-based operating system created and distributed by Google derived from the open-source Chromium OS. Chrome OS is used primarily while connected to the Internet and most files, data, and applications are stored in the cloud.

Prerequisites

Before deploying Chrome OS devices, consider the following pre-requisites, requirements for enrollment, supporting materials, and helpful suggestions from the Workspace ONE UEM team.

To get started with Chrome OS device management, obtain a Chrome Enterprise license for each device you want to manage. For more information about Chrome Enterprise licensing, contact your Chrome OS device reseller or your Google sales representative.

You can view and manage your Chrome Enterprise licenses from the Google Admin Console.

User Setup

Workspace ONE UEM needs access to the same list of users that are present in the Google Admin Console which is facilitated through Directory Integration. For more information on Directory Integration, see the Directory Services Integration Guide. For more information on how to sync users in the Google Admin Console, see the Google Cloud Directory Sync documentation from Google.
