Preparing for the Integration

Make some preparations on the VMware Workspace ONE UEM console before the integration.

The integration between Mobile Security and VMware Workspace ONE UEM uses REST APIs over HTTPS to transfer data. The REST APIs require authentication to integrate with Workspace ONE UEM. Prior to authentication, API access must be enabled on the Workspace ONE UEM console.

To integrate Mobile Security with Workspace ONE UEM, you also need to have an account with required permissions for the communication between Mobile Security and Workspace ONE UEM.

Important:

Integration with Mobile Security requires the use of custom AirWatch groups.

  1. Enable API access.
    1. Log on to the VMware Workspace ONE UEM console.
    2. Go to GROUPS & SETTINGS > All Settings.
    3. On the Settings screen, go to System > Advanced > API > REST API.
    4. Select Enabled for Enable API Access.

      Enabling API access automatically generates an API key, which is necessary for API authentication.

  2. Create an account with the required API permissions.
    1. On the VMware Workspace ONE UEM console, go to ACCOUNTS > Administrators > Roles.
    2. On the Roles screen, click ADD ROLE, and create a role with the required permissions.
