Transition Behavior from the AirWatch Catalog to Workspace ONE
As Workspace ONE UEM migrates to the Workspace ONE catalog, many AirWatch Catalog behaviors in previous releases change.
When you added a Web Clips profile, you can show it in the AirWatch Catalog. The option was editable.
In some Workspace ONE UEM versions, the Show in App Catalog / Container option is not editable. If you use the Workspace ONE catalog, that catalog displays all Web Clips, no matter what is configured for Show in App Catalog / Container. If you use the AirWatch Catalog, saving the Web Clips shows it in the AirWatch Catalog.
