Configuring custom URI formats (Android)

Configuring custom URI formats allows device users to open a custom URI format in web page in Web@Work in a corresponding wrapped app. For example, a URI starting with mailto: can be opened in Email+. You use the key custom_url_scheme to configure custom URI formats.

Web@Work supports the following URI formats by default:






Web@Work automatically appends http:// if a URI in a valid format does not include a prefix. A URI that is not in a valid format is seen as a search request and is automatically looked up in a search engine.

The above formats do not require any configuration by the administrator. URI formats that are not supported by default result in an error message. Use the custom configuration with key-value pairs to allow users to successfully open custom URIs in a corresponding wrapped app.

To configure Web@Work for Android to open custom URIs:

1. Sign in to the Core Admin Portal.
2. Go to Policies & Configs > Configurations, select the Web@Work Setting that applies to the devices of interest, and click Edit.
3. Under Custom Configurations, add a key-value pair.
- In the Key column, enter custom_url_scheme.
- In the Value column, enter a URI scheme.

Example: mailto,simple.test,wbx,

You can enter a list of URI formats. Each item can be separated by comma (,), semi-colon (;), or pipe (|). Do not include any spaces.

4. Click Save.
