You can configure Workspace ONE UEM to recognize the deployment of macOS applications through the software distribution method.


To initiate the software management lifecycle for macOS applications, enable the software management feature (SaaS or on-premises) on the Workspace ONE UEM console.


  1. Navigate to Settings > Devices & Users > Apple > Apple macOS > Software Management.

  2. Select Enabled to activate Software Management. At this point, make sure that you verify if the File Storage is enabled. If there is no file storage enabled, you are requested to enable it.
  3. On-premises environments use a file storage system to store the large macOS applications and also use a CDN to download the applications and to reduce the bandwidth on other servers.
