Migrate Application from SCCM to Workspace ONE UEM with AirLift

1. Review Applications in AirLift

AirLift imports metadata on SCCM Applications and allows these applications to be imported via APIs to Workspace ONE UEM.  This greatly simplifies the process of migrating applications to Workspace ONE without the need for repackaging.  

Back in the AirLift Console in Chrome,

  1. Click on Applications.
  2. Review the list of applications that have already been imported into AirLift.

1.1. Review Applications in SCCM

  1. Click the SCCM Console icon from the task bar.
  2. Click on Software Library.
  3. Expand Application Management.
  4. Click Applications.
  5. Review the applications in SCCM - notice they match what was imported into AirLift.

1.2. Confirm Apps in SCCM are not available in Workspace ONE UEM

In the Workspace ONE UEM Console,

  1. Click Apps & Books.
  2. Expand Applications.
  3. Click Native.
  4. Click the Internal tab.
  5. Confirm that the applications seen in AirLift and SCCM are currently unavailable in the Workspace ONE UEM Console.

2. Managing Applications in AirLift

In the AirLift Console in Chrome,

  1. Click the checkbox next to 7-Zip 17.01 (x64 edition).
  2. Click on the informational tooltip. Notice we receive a validation warning since our app in SCCM is set for both system/user install context. AirLift tells us it will default to using Device context when exporting to Workspace ONE UEM.
  3. Click the Export button to export an application from SCCM to Workspace ONE UEM.

2.1. Export Applications Confirmation

Click Export to confirm.

2.2. Viewing Exported App in Workspace ONE UEM Console

AirLift indicates when an application has been exported, then displays a link under the Workspace Application column.

  1. After the Application has been exported, the Status will change from Exporting to Exported.
  2. To manually check the status of the export, click the Refresh button.
    NOTE: The application may take several minutes to finish exporting.
  3. Click the 7-Zip 17.01 (x64 edition) hyperlink, which takes you directly to the app in the Workspace ONE UEM console.

2.3. Assign 7-Zip

Click Assign.

2.4. Assign and Publish the Application

Once we export the app to the Workspace ONE UEM console, all you have to do is assign the app to devices. In this case, we will assign the app to our AirLift smart group which we mapped to our Win10 SCCM device collection.

Click Add Assignment.

2.5. Add Assignment

  1. Select the AirLift smart group for the Assignment Group.
  2. Select Auto for the App Delivery Method.

2.6. Configure Assignment Policies

  1. Scroll down to the Policies section.
  2. Select Enabled for Make App MDM Managed if User Installed.
    NOTE: This option allows Workspace ONE UEM to assume management of an application that the user has already installed, allowing you to check for installation status and manage the application as necessary.
  3. Click Add.

2.7. Update Assignment

Click Save & Publish.

2.8. Publish

Click Publish.
