The automation capabilities in Workspace ONE Intelligence use numerous parameters that trigger a workflow. You can customize the workflow to act on unique scenarios in your Workspace ONE environment. Automation is a robust feature but it is not intended to replace compliance policies.
Automations use workflows. A workflow consists of triggers caused by a state change or trend that cause the engine to use a set action through Workspace ONE or an integrated third-party service. You can create your own workflows or you can use preset workflow templates.
Workflows monitor incoming and existing data. They act on states that reflect their configured triggers immediately after you save them. Workflows then monitor data for state changes and act as configured. Configure triggers in workflows to recognize the trigger that represents what you want remedied.
Automations and Compliance Policies
Automation offers many actions that help solve problems related to compliance, however, the compliance engine still serves an important purpose.
- Automations - Its decision engine acts on triggers from devices and applications to automate actions across the digital workspace environment. You can extend the decision engine to third-party services. Use the automation feature to define work flows for device-category scenarios like battery percent and ownership and to install applications and other resources in your Workspace ONE deployment. You can also use in scenarios that encompass various facets of your Workspace ONE deployment. Use it to install or remove applications and profiles for security, notify interested teams about workflows, and extend these capabilities to third-party solutions.
- Compliance - Its engine acts on closed-loop workflows where a user can have resources returned after becoming compliant again. Use compliance in scenarios focused on remediation and device state. Use it to force devices to comply with mandated security policies. Remove resources until devices comply with set compliance rules that return them to a working state.
