VMware Workspace ONE UEM: Configure AppConfig

AppConfig enables you to send down application configuration profiles along with your managed apps when you distribute them through your Managed Google Play Store. This saves on having to have the UEM implement the required APIs for the app you are using so you can remotely configure it. To use AppConfig on Workspace ONE UEM, follow the below instructions.

  1. Navigate to Apps & Books > Applications > Native > Public and assign an app to the group you wish. Like in the below screenshot for the Samsung Native Email client.

  2. Before clicking the ADD button, scroll down to the Application Configuration section and select ENABLED. If the app has been developed in accordance to the AppConfig community, then you will see a list of variables you can configure below.

  3. Configure the various options you wish and then when you are finished, click the ADD button.

  4. Confirm the assignment by clicking SAVE AND PUBLISH and then PUBLISH on the final screen. You have now used AppConfig to distribute a Managed Play app with a config profile.
