Workspace ONE UEM is compatible with all distributions of Linux running on x86_64, ARM5, or ARM7 architectures, although not all features might be available on every distribution. Make sure that your system meets the Workspace ONE UEM version and network requirements before you deploy your Linux devices.

Linux Device Requirements

You can enroll devices running any distribution of Linux running on x86_64, ARM5, or ARM7 architectures into Workspace ONE UEM.

  • Installers are created for specific distributions and architectures. Ensure that you are using the correct installer for your use case.
  • To run Hub as a system service, the device must be running System D or System V.
  • Configurations using Workspace ONE profiles requires a Puppet agent (open source). When running a Debian-based (deb) or Red Hat-based (rpm) system, the puppet agent is installed automatically with Hub. For other systems, or when using the Tarball method of installation, install the puppet agent manually prior to Workspace ONE enrollment. For more information, see the Installation section.

Workspace ONE UEM Requirements

Workspace ONE UEM for Linux is generally available. However, it might not be available in your environment. Workspace ONE UEM for Linux is available in all shared SaaS environments and is deploying to dedicated SaaS environments. Workspace ONE UEM for Linux is not available for on-premises installations of Workspace ONE UEM.

  • You must deploy the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux v22.06 or later. Previous versions including v21.10, v21.01, and v1 of the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux do not support the features described in this guide.
  • Workspace ONE UEM 2206 or later with Control Plane implemented are both required to be able to use Linux Management.

Before attempting to enroll a Linux device, determine if Linux management is enabled in your Workspace ONE UEM environment. The easiest way to validate this is to create a new profile. Navigate to Resources > Profiles & Baselines> Profiles> Add> Add Profile to see if Linux is an available option.

If Linux as an option, similar to the following, then Linux management is enabled. You can enroll a Linux device. If there is no Linux option, then enrolling a Linux device will not work in your environment. See the following KB article to read more about when environments are scheduled to be upgraded.

The Add Profile screen shows the Linux icon.
