What's in the Release Notes

VMware Workspace ONE Boxer for Android Release Notes details new features and enhancements in each release. This page contains a summary of the new capabilities, resolved issues, and known issues reported in each version.

NOTE: To standardize the configuration of our productivity applications, in VMware Workspace ONE Boxer 22.05, we will be removing the key AppForceActivateSSO from the Application Configuration settings. Workspace ONE Boxer will function as though it has AppForceActivateSSO enabled with a passcode set in SDK settings. If you are using the Workspace ONE Boxer passcode, you will need to set up and configure an SSO passcode in SDK settings. Please see the KB article to ensure you are ready for this migration in the next release of Workspace ONE Boxer.

    • Administrators must set passcode settings in the Workspace ONE SDK SSO password/passcode settings for their users to continue using the passcode/password on Workspace ONE Boxer.
    • For more information about the deprecation of Workspace ONE Boxer app passcode for standalone enrolled devices, see the KB article.
  • [Optional] KVP for Resource URL for ENS

    • PolicyENSResourceURL is a new, account-based KVP, of type string.
    • This KVP is used only for hybrid modern authentication with Resource URL and not the O365 URL.
    • When the KVP is enabled, administrators can configure a specific Resource URL.
    • To fetch the oAuth access token, Workspace ONE Boxer and ENS (Email Notification Service) must use the configured Resource URL. Hence, Workspace ONE Boxer must share the Resource URL with ENS as part of the register request payload.
