Weekly highlight:



End of Life for Workspace ONE AirLift (89506)

  • The Workspace ONE AirLift tool will reach end-of-support (EoS) effective immediately and end-of-availability date (EoA) on October 31st, 2022. The Workspace ONE AirLift tool will be removed from the Workspace ONE portal on this date. Current Airlift installations will no longer be supported and no new updates will be made available. 
  • The Workspace ONE AirLift tool was used to accelerate deployments off of SCCM by providing an easy way to migrate applications and policy into Workspace ONE.  While this tool did provide some value in migrating applications, the value found in migrating Group Policy was limited.  VMware is committed to supporting those applications and policy migrations through investment in advanced tooling hosted on VMware {code} and new Baseline policy configurations within Workspace ONE.
  • Customers who have Workspace ONE AirLift should no longer leverage the tool for application and policy migration.
  • For customer looking to migrate applications, VMware has made app upload scripts available on VMware {code}. This code leverages the same Workspace ONE APIs and will provides admins with an automated way to migrate a large number of applications.   VMware has also written a step by step guide on using Workspace ONE APIs to upload Windows applications.
    For policy migrations, VMware recommends customer leverage Workspace ONE Baselines .  Workspace ONE UEM curates industry-recommended settings into one Baseline configuration to simplify securing your devices. Baselines reduce the time it takes to set up and configure Windows devices.  By moving to Baselines, customers will also avoid migrating legacy Group Policy that is prevalent in many legacy environments.
