Workspace ONE UEM offers information about various attributes using REST APIs. However, this requires the system to ping for data from API endpoints. In the scenarios of Enterprise custom workflows and automations, querying information on-demand may not be sufficient. It is equally important to receive the information only when something has changed.
Constantly pinging the API endpoints for these changes is a very expensive operation and can take a lot of resources, making the entire workflow or automation slow and inefficient. Workspace ONE UEM offers Event Notification as a solution to this problem of constantly polling the API endpoints for changes. You can subscribe to certain events and Workspace ONE UEM will send the notifications on those event occurrences. These notifications act as triggers and also data sources to send the related information about the subscribed events.
In this lab, we will see how to leverage subscribe and leverage these Event Notifications.
