If you use the Content Gateway for Windows and house applications on an external server system, set external repositories for various platforms and application types.

Supported App Types

The external app repository feature supports only internal applications.

Supported File Types

You can add the following supported file types to the external app repository feature.

  • IPA for Apple iOS
  • Application package bundles for macOS
  • APK for Android
  • SIS and SISX for Symbian
  • XAP for Windows Phone
  • APPX, msi, zip and .exe for Windows Desktop that works for all three processors, x64, x86, and ARM

Important:

The link for the application must end in one of the supported file types or users cannot access the application.

Supported Deployments

  • SaaS deployments using the Content Gateway for Windows for secure communications
  • on-premises deployments using the Content Gateway for Windows for secure communications

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.
