Welcome to the Digital Workspace blog! 

The blog is focused on interesting things around End User Computing (EUC), primarily VMware Workspace One platform.

AirWatch applications and SDK check the system for compromised (jailbreak/root) status. When they uncover by some symptoms that the device was compromised, this status is transmitted to the Console, and an action is taken. Or not. There is a switch tucked away in the depths of settings, which allows AirWatch to ignore Compromised devices. It is in Settings → Apps → Settings and Policies → Security Policies. Compromised.…
LetsEncrypt public certificates from Mozilla Foundation are cool, but updating every 3 months can be a pain. There are several ways to automate, and the latest I discovered is to outsource this procedure: turns out there is a DNS-provider https://porkbun.com/ https://porkbun.com/ who do the procedure for you. Just download the brand new certificates every 3 months and insert them where they should be, without additional fuss.…
Recently I have spent the day troubleshooting a not-so-common piece of AirWatch together with a customer - the Remote File Storage or RFS. And then news of Personal Content going End-Of-Life https://support.workspaceone.com/articles/360015261113 hit us. So let's look at the topic in detail. There are 2 kinds of storage in AirWatch currently (until 3rd of January 2020 at least) for the 2 kinds of documents: For corporate documents, which the company may want to protect,…
Podcast stream of news
There are lots of ways to bring fresh news. Together with my colleague & VMware architect Alex Malashin we decided to try recording podcasts on latest VMware Cloud & EUC news & headlines (currently in Russian) and send them directly to your earbuds! Next step is to invite guests to talk about cool things happening in the industry. Follow our new project on https://digital-work.space/podcast https://digital-work.space/podcast
A quick question flew in: when adding user groups as local admins of enrolled macbooks during macOS domain join, how should such groups be listed in AirWatch console? (Profile-> macOS-> Device Profile-> Directory-> Administrative-> Group Names). Official doc https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Workspace-ONE-UEM/1902/macOS_Platform/GUID-AWT-MACPROFILEDIRECTORY.html does not clarify this. Answer: group names should be just listed by simple name, example.…
Samsung KNOX devices
Usually, when someone asks me what Samsung devices are good enough for some Restriction Profile I need to do hard googling to find a SAFE (KNOX) version on the Samsung Support Site. So I decide to put this link here to save your time. Devices by KNOX versions: https://www.samsungknox.com/en/knox-platform/supported-devices https://www.samsungknox.com/en/knox-platform/supported-devices
Lately I had a heated dialogue with Citrix tech guys in one of our clients about publishing of their apps. It seems there are two ways to integrate Citrix with Identity Manager: Use Storefront - the Citrix web portal in front of the XenApp farm. IDM can impersonate a user, go to Storefront using its' access policy, and it will present what the user can see. This method is seen as more secure by Citrix engineers, and it leaves their policies alone,…
Antivirus Kills AirWatch
Last year I have deployed a demo stand of AirWatch at one of the customers, and all went well, until they called a week later and said AirWatch has dropped dead. Well, life is life, nothing too unusual about AirWatch dropping dead from time to time, so I asked them to send in some logs, which they did not do. The customer was convinced it was something with their DB server, so they pleaded for me to come and just re-deploy everything on a fresh DB. So I came by today and opened the logs first,…
