In the PowerShell model of deployment, Workspace ONE UEM adopts a PowerShell administrator role. Workspace ONE UEM issues commands to the Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) infrastructure to permit or deny email access based on the settings defined in the UEM console.
PowerShell deployments do not require a separate email proxy server, and the installation process is simple. Once installed, Workspace ONE UEM sends commands to PowerShell in accordance with the established email policies, and PowerShell runs the actions. The PowerShell model is for organizations using Microsoft Exchange 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019, or Office 365 environments.
The diagram highlights the communications flow for an implementation with Office 365. For Office 365 implementation, VMware does not recommend routing the PowerShell traffic through the AirWatch Cloud Connector.
