The AirWatch Cloud Connector (ACC) is integrated with Workspace ONE Access for user password authentication in Workspace ONE.

Note: You install ACC and configure the ACC component in Workspace ONE UEM. After the ACC is installed and configured, you integrate the Workspace ONE UEM directory services with Active Directory. See the VMware Workspace ONE UEM Directory Services Guide for information about enabling the directory services.

To implement AirWatch Cloud Connector authentication for Workspace ONE, in the Workspace ONE Access console, the Password (for Workspace ONE UEM) authentication method is associated to a built-in identity provider.

You can enable just-in-time support in Workspace ONE UEM to add new users to the Workspace ONE Access directory when users sign in for the first time. When just-in-time support is enabled, users do not need to wait for the next scheduled sync from the Workspace ONE UEM server to access Workspace ONE. Instead, new users sign in to their Workspace ONE portal, either from their devices or from their desktop computer and enter their Active Directory user name and password. The Workspace ONE Access service authenticates the Active Directory credentials through the AirWatch Cloud Connector and adds the user profile to the directory.

After you associate the authentication methods in the built-in identity provider, you create access policies to apply to this authentication method.

Note: User name and password authentication are integrated into the AirWatch Cloud Connector deployment. To authenticate users using other Workspace ONE Access -supported authentication methods, the Workspace ONE Access connector must be configured.
