You can control the deployment of your win32 applications by adding a single assignment or multiple assignments and configure the deployment for your win32 applications.

You can configure deployments for your win32 applications for a specific time and let the Workspace ONE UEM console carry out the deployments without further interaction. The flexible deployment feature resides in the Assign sections of the application and offers advantages to the assigning process.


If you add multiple assignments, make sure you prioritize the importance of the assignment by moving its place in the list up for most important or down for least important.


  1. Navigate to Resources > Apps > Native > Internal or Public.
  2. Upload an application and select Save & Assign or select the application and choose Assign .
  3. From the Assignments tab, choose Add Assignment.
    1. In the Distribution tab, complete the following options:
      Setting Description
      Name Type the assignment name.
      Description Enter the assignment description.
      Assignment Groups Type a smart group name to select the groups of devices to receive the assignment.
      Deployment Begins On Deployment Begins On is available only for internal applications.Set a day of the month and a time of day for the deployment to start.

      To set a beginning date with enough bandwidth for a successful deployment, consider the traffic patterns of your network.

      App Delivery Method View how the application pushes to devices. Auto pushes immediately through the AirWatch Catalog with no user interaction. On-Demand pushes to devices when the user initiates an installation from a catalog.
      Display in App Catalog Select Show or Hide to display an internal or public application in the catalog.
      Note: The Show or Hide option is applicable only to the Workspace ONE Catalog and not legacy VMware AirWatch Catalog.

      Use this feature to hide applications in the app catalog you do not want users to access.

      Display Notifications Select Show or Hide to display user notifications (per assignment) during the application installation and removal on your Windows 10 devices.

      For example, when you deploy some applications, such as security, infrastructure, or frequently changing applications, you may want to prevent notifications from appearing to your end users. You can opt to hide the installation notifications for your auto-deployed applications from the Action Center in Windows and the Installation Monitor in the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub and Workspace ONE application.

      Allow User Install Deferral Enable this setting if you want to allow the user to defer the application installation. After the specified number of deferrals is reached, the app installs.
      Use UEM or Custom Notifications Specify if the deferrals must use Workspace ONE UEM or third party notifications.
      Installer Deferral Interval

      Specify if the user will select the deferral time frame or the admin will explicitly force the next install attempt.

      Installer Deferral Exit Code

      Specify the integer code returned by the installer to indicate if the app installation has been deferred. This allows the app installation to be retired at the next installation interval.

    2. In the Restriction tab, complete the following options:
      Setting Description
      Make App MDM Managed if User Installed Assume management of applications previously installed by users on their Windows Desktop. MDM management occurs automatically regardless of the application delivery method and requires privacy settings to allow the collection of personal applications. Enable this feature so that users do not have to delete the application version installed on the device. Workspace ONE UEM manages the application without having to install the application catalog version on the device.
      Desired State Management By default, the Desired State management is a read-only field and is displayed only for your internal software distribution applications. You can enable the Desired State management setting under the following conditions:
      1. Your internal software distribution application does not include a custom script for the installation detection.
      2. The App Delivery Method is set to Auto.
      3. Allow MDM Management is set for your application.
    3. Click Create.
