Workspace ONE UEM is compatible with all distributions of Linux running on x86_64, ARM5, or ARM7, or ARM8 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, ARM7, or ARM8 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 Workspace ONE Intelligent 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 installs 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 most SaaS environments. Workspace ONE UEM for Linux is not available for on-premises installations of Workspace ONE UEM.

  • We encourage you to use the latest version of Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux. Previous versions of the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub for Linux do not support the features described in this guide.
  • To use Linux Management, Workspace ONE UEM 2206 or later with Control Plane implemented are both required. Some features require the latest version of Workspace ONE UEM.

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 the Linux icon shows on the Add Profile page, then Linux management is enabled. You can enroll a Linux device. If there is no Linux icon, then your environment does not allow Linux device enrollment. To read more about environments upgrade scheduling, see the following KB article.

The Add Profile screen shows the Linux icon.
