      App Delivery Method
      • On Demand – Deploys content to a catalog or other deployment agent. The device user can decide if and when to install the content.

        This option is the best choice for content that is not critical to the organization. Allowing users to download the content when they want helps conserve bandwidth and limits unnecessary traffic.

      • Automatic – Deploys content to a catalog or other deployment Hub on a device upon enrollment. After the device enrolls, the system prompts users to install the content on their devices.

        This option is the best choice for content that is critical to your organization and its mobile users.

  4. In the Restrictions tab, enter the following information:
    Settings Description
    Remove on Unenroll Set the application to be removed from a device when the device unenrolls from Workspace ONE UEM. Workspace ONE UEM enables this setting by default.

    If you enable this setting, supervised devices are restricted from silent app installation. This is because the device is locked and the provisioning profile installation is in the command queue which requires a device to be unlocked to complete the installation.

    If you disable this setting, provisioning profiles are not pushed with the installed application. That is, if the provisioning profile is updated, the new provisioning profile is not automatically deployed to devices. In such cases, a new version of the application with the new provisioning profile is required.

    Prevent Application Backup Disallow backing up the application data to iCloud. However, the application can still back up to iCloud.
    Make App MDM Managed if User Installed

    Assume management of applications previously installed by users on their devices, whether applications are supervised or unsupervised.

    Enable this feature so that users do not have to delete the application version installed on the device. Workspace ONE UEM manages the application without having to install the AirWatch Catalog version on the device.

  5. In the Tunnel & Other Attributes tab, enter the following information:
    Settings Description
    Per App VPN Profile Select a VPN profile that you want to use for the application. Users access the application using a VPN, which helps ensure that application access and use is trusted and secure.
    Other Attributes App attributes provide device-specific details for applications to use. For example, when you want to set a list of domains that are associated to a distinct organization.
