Unified Workspace ONE Console for App Access & Management
SaaS Application Management
Manage SaaS applications (aka web applications in Identity Manager) in the same AirWatch console as native applications and web links. Use the unified console to add new SaaS applications, and to pull existing web apps from Identity Manager. Any applications added in the unified view automatically sync with Identity Manager.
Add or Edit SaaS Applications in Console v9.2

Access Policy Management
Access policies map IP addresses to network ranges to determine user access, securing SaaS applications.

Workspace ONE Getting Started Wizard
|The wizard serves as a step-by-step checklist for configuring the Workspace ONE catalog, its applications and the required components. In AirWatch v9.2, the wizard facilitates the entire configuration chain for Workspace ONE, mobile single sign-on and Microsoft Office 365 configurations.
Access the Workspace ONE Getting Started Wizard
The primary purpose of the Workspace ONE wizard is automating initial setup. For this reason, new installations display the enhanced wizard at the top of the main menu by default. However, the enhanced wizard also provides value for existing customers.
For existing deployments, customers can use the wizard to evaluate their current setup or to add Workspace ONE, powered by AirWatch unified endpoint management technology. In either case, these customers must manually enable the Workspace ONE getting started wizard to access the configurations. In this post, access instructions for both customer types are included inline.
Workspace ONE Getting Started Wizard Configurations
The Workspace ONE getting started wizard displays a list of features that can be configured or ignored, according to the needs of the organization. Required configurations are marked by a red star (*).
Use the Workspace ONE Getting Started Wizard
The getting started wizard serves as an additional, guided configuration option. It does not replace the ability to configure or edit any individual setting. Therefore, any settings configured in the wizard are also individually available.
During configuration, the wizard checks the AirWatch console and Identity Manager for existing, potentially conflicting configurations. If the wizard discovers any discrepancies, it sends a notification that interrupts configuration.
You may see any of the following options while using the wizard:
Mobile Single Sign-On
Workspace ONE offers universal single sign-on to mobile applications. Mobile single sign-on allows users to sign in to enterprise apps securely, without the need for a password.
Configure Workspace ONE Mobile SSO with the Wizard
Configure Office 365 Apps Using the Workspace ONE Wizard
Configure Office 365 mobile app(s) in the AirWatch console, and unify endpoint management for Android and iOS devices.
Configure Office365 with the Getting Started Wizard
