Configuring AirWatch integration

AirWatch integration allows FortiClient (Android) endpoints to connect to EMS. This documentation is based on Workspace ONE UEM 219.0.0 (2109).

To configure integration between AirWatch and FortiClient (Android):
  1. In AirWatch, go to Assignment Groups. Create a new assignment group.
  2. Go to Accounts, and add a new user.

  3. Add a new device for the user:
    1. From the Device Ownership Type dropdown list, select Corporate - Dedicated.
    2. From the Platform dropdown list, select Any or Android.
    3. For Message Type, select EMAIL.
    4. Save. This sends an AirWatch device activation email to the user.
  4. The user installs Intelligent Hub on the device and scans the QR code in the activation email to enroll the device.
  5. In AirWatch, go to Apps & Books, and add FortiClient (Android) from the public app store.

  6. When adding an assignment, enter the desired name and select the desired assignment groups. Configure the deployment as desired.

    In Application Configuration, you can optionally add key-value pairs. FortiClient sends this information to EMS.

    The following shows the configuration for a FortiClient (Android) device that will connect Telemetry to on-premise EMS:

    Supported keys include the following:

    Key

    Description

    Mac address

    Android device MAC address.

    Device ID

    Android device UDID.

    Ems server IP

    EMS server IP address.

    Ems server port

    EMS port number.

    Ems server key

    EMS Telemetry key.

    Group tag

    This value is used as a group tag for configuration in EMS. See FortiClient EMS Administration Guide.

    Cloud invite code

    This value is used for connecting FortiClient (Android) to FortiClient Cloud. Enter the invite code received from FortiClient Cloud.

  7. You can add more assignments and use different Group tag values.
  8. When FortiClient starts on the device, it automatically connects to on-premise EMS or FortiClient Cloud, depending on the configuration.

    The following shows the on-premise EMS GUI after FortiClient (Android) connects Telemetry.
