Resources in UEM

Resources in Workspace ONE UEM are like puzzle pieces representing individual elements you install or configure on devices. Resources include apps & books, profiles, updates, sensors, scripts, time windows, and installation orders. When pieced together, the picture they make is the secure and reliable functioning of your mobile fleet.

Apps & Books

Access and manage the app catalog, book catalog, and Volume Purchase Program (VPP) orders. Also view application analytics and logs with application settings, including app categories, smart groups, app groups, featured apps, geofencing, and profiles associated with apps. For more information, see Introduction to Application Lifecycle Management.

Profiles & Baselines

Profiles – Device Profiles are the primary means by which you manage devices in Workspace ONE UEM. They represent the settings that, when combined with compliance policies, help you enforce corporate rules and procedures. For more information, see Profiles and Profile Resources Used in Workflows.

Baselines – Keeping your devices configured to best practices is a time-consuming process. You can secure all your devices with industry-recommended settings and configurations. Workspace ONE UEM curates these best practices into configurations called Baselines. These configurations significantly reduce the time it takes to set up and configure Windows devices. For more information see Using Baselines.

Device Updates

Manage all your device update files, including the entire installation status history of each update, all in one location. Device Updates is a platform-specific feature. Consult the platform guides for Windows Desktop, Android, and iOS for details.


Sensors are a special kind of script. A script is a programmable command that is run-on-demand.

A sensor is also programmable but it excels as a programmable condition. The sensor name becomes the key and that key’s value is sourced by executing actions based on external triggers like an agent action, a schedule, or an event. The action can also be made on-demand. Sensor keys and their resulting values are then used as conditions for assignments.

For more information, see Creating Sensors for Windows Desktop Devices and Sensors for macOS Devices.


A script is a programmable resource that is executed for the purpose of collecting values or affecting a change to the device. Scripts are triggered on the device by sensor conditions, run on-demand, or through the course of a Freestyle Workflow.

For more information, see Scripts for Windows Desktop and Scripts for macOS Devices.

Time Window

Updating devices with provisioned and other downloadable content can be a lengthy process. The Time Window feature allows you to schedule those downloads outside of peak work hours, using the device local time. You no longer have to select between keeping your device up to date and being productive.

For more information, see Make a Time Window and Assign it to Devices.


Orders refer to content purchased through Apple Business Manager Volume Purchase Program (VPP) and the distribution of that content using redemption codes and managed distribution. For more information about orders and VPP, see the Volume Purchase Program topic in the Apple Business Manager Guide.
