Configure an Admin Repository to sync your network's existing corporate file servers with Workspace ONE UEM. After the sync, end users can access the Corporate File Server content from their devices.


  1. Navigate to Content > Repositories > Admin Repositories in the UEM console.
  2. Select Add.
  3. Configure the settings that appear.
    Setting Description
    Name Label the content directory.
    Type Select a Corporate File Server from the drop-down menu.
    Link Provide the full path to the directory location rather than the root domain. Example: http://SharePoint/Corporate/Documents

    A URL copied directly from a web browser might not have permission to access a server for certain repository types.

    Organization Group Assign Corporate File Server access to a selected group of users.
    Use PIV-D Derived Credentials This setting is available only when SharePoint is selected as the repository type. Select the check box to use the PIV-D certificate authentication to authenticate the users instead of user names and passwords.

    PIV-D certificate authentication is for authenticating the users who want to access the on-prem SharePoint repositories from their devices.

    Note: Enabling use of a PIV-D Derived Credential requires Kerberos configuration in the Content Gateway settings.

    For information about the certificate authentication settings on Content Gateway, see the Configure Content Gateway on the UEM Console topic in the Content Gateway documentation.

    Access via Content Gateway Use the Content Gateway if the Workspace ONE UEM server’s domain cannot access the Corporate File Server.
    Content Gateway Identify the unique name of the appropriate Content Gateway node from the drop-down menu.
    Allow Inheritance Permit child organization groups to inherit the same access permissions as their parent organization group.
    Allow Write Permit end users to create and upload files and folders, edit documents, and check in or check out files to external repositories on their devices.
    Allow Delete Permits remote content delete for the Network Share repository. With this feature, the end user can delete their content permanently from the Network Share repository using the Workspace ONE Content app.
    Authentication Type Select the access level admins have to Corporate File Servers from the UEM console.
    • None – Prevent administrators from viewing and downloading Corporate File Server content from the UEM console.
    • User – Permit browsing of the repository file structure within the UEM console. Enter credentials into the Username and Password text boxes that appear.
      Note: If the Use PIV-D Derived Credentials check box is selected, then the password text box does not appear. Provide the User Principal Name for the user in the Username text box.
  4. Select Test Connection to verify connectivity.
    A successful test result indicates the corporate file server integrated successfully.
  5. Enter the values in the remaining text boxes under the Security, Assignment, and Deployment tabs. Select Save.
