Enabling OAuth 2.0 authentication with Workspace ONE Intelligence

Automations in Workspace ONE Intelligence let you automate actions across your Workspace ONE deployment. The automation capabilities in Workspace ONE Intelligence use numerous parameters that trigger a workflow. You can customise the workflow to act on unique scenarios in your Workspace ONE environment. To enable this capability with Workspace ONE UEM, you need to select Integrations and then Outbound Connectors option and enable the Workspace ONE UEM integration.

The purpose of this article is to use the OAuth 2.0 authentication method between both products. The primary advantage of this method is that the authorisation won’t expire (which will occur if you use local administrator account in UEM, where the default policy is set to expire every 30 days).
