Workspace ONE UEM supports integration with various corporate file servers. The syncing method support and requirement of the Content Gateway component vary by repository type.

Available Sync Methods

Review the available syncing methods for repositories:

  • Admin – Refers to a repository that gets fully configured and synced by an administrator in the UEM console. Each assigned user receives the same static link to the file repository.
  • Automatic – Refers to a repository that gets configured by an administrator in the UEM console but allows the admin to use dynamic lookup values. The repository gets synced by end users on their devices. Each assigned user receives a unique or semi-unique link to a file repository. This is a useful option for link to users' home directories.
  • Manual – Refers to a repository that gets configured in the UEM console, but allows the admin to set a static and wildcard portion of a link. Each end user can manually add the repository link that complies with the format set by the admin and sync the repository on their device.
Note: Irrespective of the number of files present in the repository folders, only 1K files in any folder that are sorted alphabetically gets synced to the device.
