MAM Functionality with VMware Workspace ONE SDK

The Settings and Policies in VMware Workspace ONE® UEM powered by AirWatch has settings that control security, application behaviors, and the data retrieval of specific applications. The settings are also called SDK settings because they run on the Workspace ONE SDK framework.

You can apply these SDK features to applications built with the Workspace ONE SDK, to supported Workspace ONE UEM applications, and to applications wrapped by the VMware AirWatch App Wrapping engine. Same features can be applied in both the places as the Workspace ONE SDK framework processes the functionality.

Types of Options for SDK Settings

Workspace ONE UEM has two types of the SDK settings, default and custom. To choose the type of SDK setting, determine the scope of deployment.

  • Default settings work well across organization groups, applying to large numbers of devices.

    Find the default settings in Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps > Settings and Policies and then select Security Policies, Settings, or SDK App Compliance. You can apply these options across all the Workspace ONE UEM applications in an organization group. Shared options are easier to manage and configure because they are in a single location. View the matrices for information on which default settings apply to specific Workspace ONE UEM applications or the Workspace ONE SDK and app wrapping.

  • Custom settings work with individual devices or for small numbers of devices with applications that require special mobile application management (MAM) features.

    Find the custom settings in Groups & Settings > All Settings > Apps > Settings and Policies > Profiles. Custom settings for profiles offer granular control for specific applications and the ability to override default settings. However, they also require separate input and maintenance.
