When deploying the Workspace ONE application as a managed application in AirWatch and you enable Send Application Configurations when you push the Workspace ONE app from the AirWatch console, you can preconfigure Workspace ONE settings that are applied when users install and start the Workspace ONE app.

When the Workspace ONE application is uploaded to the AirWatch admin console as a managed mobile application, you can configure the VMware Workspace ONE Server URL, the device UID value, and requirement for certificate authentication in Android devices.

SkipDiscoveryScreen

Boolean

true

Beginning with the Workspace ONE application version 3.1, the SkipDiscoveryScreen configuration key can be configured.

When set to True, Workspace ONE tries to move past the email address/server URL screen. When used with the AppServiceHost configuration key, users are immediately taken to the authentication screen. If mobile SSO is also used, admins can provide end users with a seamless experience whereby they start Workspace ONE and immediately begin loading their Workspace ONE app.
