Workspace ONE Access OnPrem 22.09


Introducing the Redesigned Workspace ONE Access Navigation

After you upgrade to Workspace ONE Access 22.09, you will see a redesigned Workspace ONE Access administration console.

The redesigned Workspace ONE Access admin console improves your ability to navigate and edit key settings, helping you achieve your business goals. Pages are grouped under five tabs—Monitor, Accounts, Resources, Integrations, and Settings—with menus located on the left side panel. The former Manageand Setup buttons were removed to simplify the configuration process.

Time-Based One-Time Password (TOTP) Support for RFC 6238 Compliant Authenticator Apps

Workspace ONE Access now supports a new authentication method, Authenticator App, to enhance its native MFA capabilities. This MFA is ideal for users with unmanaged devices, can be used offline, and requires no collection of personal identifying information (PII). We recommend that users leverage the new authentication functionality available in the Workspace ONE Intelligent Hub iOS and Android apps to register their TOTP.

Directory Sync Frequency Updates

The interval between synchronization times has been made more flexible and will let administrators choose between setting hourly synchronizations or synchronizations every 2, 6, or 12 hours. Administrators can also choose to set their synchronization frequency to be less often with daily or weekly intervals.


Configure Multiple Directories for an Identity Provider

In today's Workspace ONE Access on-premises deployments, the Identity Provider setup was limited to only allow a single directory. This functionality was brought to Workspace ONE Access SaaS hosted tenants in October 2021, and now we are bringing the ability to configure more than one directory for an Identity Provider to our on-premises offering.

Impact of Deprecation of Basic authentication in Exchange Online on WS1 Boxer (89560)

  • Customers who are using Basic Auth in Exchange Online need to move to Modern Auth because of the deprecation of Basic auth.
  • Microsoft is removing the ability to use Basic authentication in Exchange Online for Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), POP, IMAP, Remote PowerShell, Exchange Web Services (EWS), Offline Address Book (OAB), Outlook for Windows, and Mac.

This decision requires customers to move from basic authentication to Modern authentication. Modern authentication (OAuth 2.0 token-based authorization) has many benefits and improvements that help mitigate the issues in basic authentication. 

Microsoft announced that effective October 1, 2022, they will begin disabling Basic authentication for Outlook, EWS, RPS, POP, IMAP, and EAS protocols in Exchange Online.

On September 1, 2022, Microsoft announced there will be one final opportunity to postpone this change. Tenants will be allowed to re-enable a protocol once between October 1, 2022 and December 31, 2022. Any protocol exceptions or re-enabled protocols will be turned off early in January 2023, with no possibility of further use. 

In Office 365 Operated by 21Vianet, Microsoft will begin disabling Basic authentication on March 31, 2023. All other cloud environments are subject to the October 1, 2022 date.
