New Flings

Workspace ONE UEM Profile Migration Utility
This Fling aides in moving Profiles between Workspace ONE UEM Consoles.
This can be very helpful to programmatically migrate complex Profiles
from UAT to PROD environments.

SDDC Certificate Tool
The SDDC Certificate Tool automates this workflow and makes it easy to keep certificates across your SDDC up to date. It will replace all certificates in the supported products and reestablish trust between the components.

Horizon Helpdesk Utility
The Horizon Helpdesk Utility is designed to be a tool used by real help desk agents. The Horizon Helpdesk Utility takes all of the functionality of the current HTML5 based Helpdesk in VMware Horizon and adds true desktop integration features.

DRS Dump Insight H5 Plugin
The DRS Dump Insight H5 Plugin helps answer simple questions like “Can I get all the recommendations made by DRS?” and “Why did DRS make a certain recommendation?”.

Horizon Session Recording
This Fling allows administrators of a VMware Horizon environment record their users activity in their Blast Extreme virtual desktop and application sessions.

Workspace ONE UEM Samsung

This Fling is designed to add to the existing abilities of AirWatch’s Samsung E-FOTA implementation. These new abilities include scheduling a firmware/OS update in a targeted window.
