VMware Workspace ONE Boxer for Android Release Notes provide information on the new features and improvements in each release. This page includes a summary of the new features introduced, a list of our resolved issues, and known issues.

New Features

To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, In the near future, Boxer will be removing the key AppForceActivateSSO from the Application Configuration settings. The new functionality behaves as if the key AppForceActivateSSO is set to “true.” Please make sure to test that your environment still works with this key set to “true” before we change the default to be “true” and remove the option to set it to “false.” Please test Login flows, passcode, and copy-in restriction. You can find more information on AppForceActivateSSO in the Boxer Admin Guide.
