Setting up AirWatch for Intergation with Identity Manager: Part 1

First off ensure you have this in place:

  • The organization group in AirWatch that you are configuring VMware Identity Manager is organization type: Customer.
  • REST API admin key for communication with VMware Identtiy Manager service and a REST enrolled user API key for AirWatch Cloud Connector password authentication are made at the same organization group where VMware Identity Manager is configured.
  • API Admin account settings and the admin auth certificate from AirWatch added to the AirWatch settings in the VMware Identity Manager admin console.
  • Active Directory user accounts set up at the asme organization group where  VMware Identity Manager is configured.
  • If end users are placed into a child organization group from where VMware Identity Manager is configured after registration and enrollment, User Group mapping in the AirWatch enrollment configuration must be used to filter users and their respective devices to the appropriate organization group.

You can find these in your AirWatch Admin console:

  • REST admin API key for communication: System -> Advanced -> API -> REST API
  • API Admin account for VMware Identity Manager and the admin auth certificate that is exported form AirWatch and added to the AirWatch settings in VMware Identity Manager.
  • REST enrolled user API key used for AirWatch Cloud Connector password authentication.

Installing and configuring the AirWatch Cloud Connector

 

First we will install the AirWatch Cloud Connector (ACC) by enabling it in the AirWatch Admin Console and then we download and run the installer file onto the server that will host the service.

Installing the AirWatch Cloud Connector (ACC) includes the following tasks:

  • Enable the ACC in the AirWatch Admin Console
  • Generate the certificate that will be used for communication between the ACC and the AirWatch environment.
  • Configure the ACC with the services we will be using.
  • Download the ACC installer and install it.
  • Verify that the installation was successful, and that communications pass between the AirWatch SaaS to the ACC, and the ACC to the AirWatch SaaS.
