Configuring Ivanti Docs@Work for Android AppConnect in Ivanti Neurons for MDM

Before you begin 

  • Decide which repositories you want to make available. All repositories you configure for Docs@Work are visible to all users. You can provide select users with instructions for accessing restricted repositories.
  • Decide whether you want to make each repository a published site. Content on published sites is automatically downloaded and mirrored on devices.
  • Collect the following information for each repository:
    • URL for the site
    • type of repository (SharePoint, WebDAV)
    • subtype of repository (Office 365, NetworkDrive, and so on.)

To configure Docs@Work on Ivanti Neurons for MDM follow these steps:


  1. Edit the Default AppConnect device configuration or create a new one.

    If the same settings will apply to all user groups and all AppConnect-enabled apps, then you can edit the default configuration. Only one AppConnect device configuration can be applied to a given device and all AppConnect-enabled apps on that device.

  2. Add the Docs@Work app to the app catalog.
    • Under Advanced Options and App Configuration, provide the following information for each content site you want to display in Docs@Work:



      Content Sites


      Enter a URL for the content site.

      The URL must include http:// or https://. Both domain name and IP address are supported.


      Select the type of content site you are configuring:

      SharePoint (Select SharePoint for One Drive for Business.)



      Select the subdomain type for the content site:

      SharePoint: Office 365, Corporate

      Select Office 365 if you are configuring OneDrive for Business.

      WebDAV: NetworkDrive, Cloud Storage



      Select if you want the device to authenticate to the server.

      Published Site

      Select to designate the site as a published site.

      All content in a published site is automatically downloaded and mirrored locally on the device when the device syncs. If the option is not selected, the user must manually download the content.

      A Web View site cannot be configured as a published site, and a published site cannot be configured as a Web View site.

      Published sites for SharePoint are not supported at root, site, and subsite levels. Published sites are supported at document library and folder levels. Ivanti recommends that published sites be set for publishing 50-100 documents.

      Web View

      Only for SharePoint domains.

      Select to allow users to view and navigate SharePoint folders in browser view.

    • Provide the following information for the published sites:
