Approving Applications

This section is designed to walk you through the process of approving applications for integration between AirWatch and Android Enterprise. Applications that you push through the integration of AirWatch and Android Enterprise have the same functionality as their counterparts from the Google Play Store. However, you can use AirWatch features to add functionality and security to these applications.

  • To add convenience of use, configure the Send Application Configuration option. Application configurations allow you to pre-configure supported key-value pairs and to push them down to devices along with the application. Examples of supported values may include usernames, passwords, and VPN settings. Support values depends upon the application.
  • To add secure features, use AirWatch profiles for Android Enterprise. Profiles let you set passcodes, apply restrictions, and use certificates for authentication.
