Header Menu

The Header Menu appears at the top of nearly every page of the Workspace ONE UEM, enabling you to access to the following functions and features.

  • Help – (This is the help button, shaped like a question mark in a circle.) Browse or search the available guides and UEM console documentation.
  • My Services Selector – ( Bento menu for My Services Selector) Use this menu button to select between all Workspace ONE services that are available to you.
  • Account – View your account information. Change the Account Role that you are assigned to within the current environment.

Global Search

Using a modular design with a tabbed interface, Global Search runs searches across your entire deployment. Global Search applies your search string to a single tab at a time, which produces faster results. Apply the same string to another area of the Workspace ONE UEM by selecting another tab.

After running a global search, select the following tabs to view the results.

  • Devices – Returns matches to Device friendly name and Device Profile name searches. Search results include organization group to provide context in large environments.
  • Accounts – Returns matches to user name and administrator name searches.
  • Applications – Returns matches to internal, public, purchased, and Web application searches.
  • Content – Returns matches to any content that appears on devices.

You can use the asterisk * as a wildcard in your search parameters in the following ways.

  • Entering *device returns ruggeddevice, appledevice, mobiledevice
  • Entering m*e returns manufacture, Maine, merge
  • Entering admin* returns administrator, administration, admins
  • With the introduction of wildcards, Global Search only returns exact matches unless wildcards are used both before and after your search parameter.
    • For example, entering *desktop* returns all devices that include the string “desktop” anywhere in their device list listing.
    • An alternate way to find desktops is to use filters in device list view. Using filters means you can produce a single list of not only windows desktops but also macOS plus a large array of other variables. For more information, see Filtering Devices in List View.
  • To include an asterisk as part of your search parameter, enclose it in double quotes or precede it with a backslash.
    • Entering micro"*" returns micro*
    • Entering valueable\* returns valueable*
