The Workspace ONE Web settings page lets you configure settings related to the VMware Workspace ONE Web app.

  • Current Setting – Select whether to Inherit or Override the displayed settings. Inherit means use the settings of the current organization group's parent OG, while Override enables the settings for editing so you can modify the current OG's settings directly.

Selection Mode

Allow to limit browsing to domains white listed in the Allowed Site URLs field.

Deny to allow browsing to all sites except those blacklisted in the Denied Site URLs field.

Allowed/Denied Site URLs

Utilize the following recommendations to whitelist allowed domains and blacklist denied domains.

  • Define domain names without including full URLs. The Workspace ONE Web filters by domain only, not by folder or page level.
  • Separate domains with a space, comma, or a new line.
  • Define wildcards as part of the domains; listing items from most general to specific. Example: *google.com is more general than http://yahoo.com.

    Entering *.google.com whitelists <text>.google.com, but it does not allow access to http://google.com.

  • Leave out the scheme (http:// or https://) to test the domain for both schemes. Include the scheme to limit testing to the specified scheme.
  • You can enter Port value separately. Restricted URL can contain the complete path, for example, http:// google.com:9191.
Allow IP Browsing

Select to whitelist IP addresses for browsing.

A user can navigate to a whitelisted IP address even if the actual domain for the IP address was included in the Denied Site URL listing.

Allowed IP Addresses

Whitelist IP addresses using the following recommendations:

  • Enter values in IPv4 formatting with four octets each separated by a period.
  • Enter wildcards to whitelist octets. Adding an entry that includes a * in each octet allows browsing to any IP address.
Table 4. Terms of Use
Setting Description
Required Terms of Use

Select the appropriate agreement from the drop-down menu. For all internal Workspace ONE UEM apps, including the Workspace ONE Web, you can implement a single Terms of Use Agreement for end users to accept. This agreement applies to all Workspace ONE UEM internal applications, and eliminates the need for end users to accept the same agreement multiple times, across apps.
