Workspace ONE UEM console allows you to deploy applications as a link. If you have application packages stored in a repository, internal to your network or in a cloud, you can use links to these repositories to add the application to the Workspace ONE UEM console. You can one use of the following delivery configurations to deploy applications as a link to end users.
Host and distribute applications from cloud storage
If you are using cloud storage to host an internal application, Workspace ONE UEM facilitates the connection for the device to get the application package from the cloud storage system when the deployment is initiated. Workspace ONE UEM currently does not support cloud storage system links that require authentication. It is important that the internal application package that you host on a cloud storage system is a direct link. This direct link allows the end users to accept the application package through the URL.
Download and Distribute with Workspace ONE UEM
Host application on internal network repository
If you are using a repository on your internal network, the Content Gateway facilitates the connection for the device to get the application from this repository when the Workspace ONE UEM console initiates the deployment. You can host internal applications on your network and manage the applications with Workspace ONE UEM. Workspace ONE UEM uses Windows File Share protocols to make externally hosted applications available to user devices.
Adding application package link to an internal repository to access via Content Gateway is no longer supported. For more information, see End of General Support for VMware Content Gateway on Windows and Linux. We recommend that you host and distribute apps either from cloud storage or Workspace ONE UEM.
