Git Commit(ted) Featured Fling: Forklift for Workspace ONE UEM

February 25, 2022

Welcome back to the Git Commit(ted) to </Dev> Resources series! Today, we have a featured VMware Fling: Forklift for Workspace ONE UEM. Mike Nelson and I developed this Fling and heavily leveraged the Workspace ONE UEM APIs. I suggest looking at the demo walkthrough video and thinking of the various APIs that had to be used. Pay close attention to how these APIs had to be strung together to achieve each use-case this tool provides.

The detailed version of this blog was originally posted on Tech Zone: Let Forklift for Workspace ONE UEM Do the Heavy Lifting.

Let Forklift for Workspace ONE UEM Do the Heavy Lifting

Forklift for Workspace ONE UEM is a Workspace ONE UEM change management add-on that uses APIs to empower admins to reduce errors and save time. Forklift is designed to move Workspace ONE UEM resources between UEM Tenants and Organization Groups (OGs). These tenants can be two completely different servers, such as, two dedicated SaaS instances or two Organization Groups (OGs) in the same tenant.

 

Forklift is comprised of three main use cases/feature sets:

Continuous Delivery Pipelines

Continuous Delivery Pipelines allow admins to automate the delivery of resources between the different environments and reduce human touches. Additionally, this enables admins to create a phased (ring) approach to delivering production and test groups resources.

Resource Migrations

Resource Migrations allow an A to B migration of a resource. Supported resources are:

  • Profiles - iOS, Android, macOS, Windows 10
  • Baselines - Windows 10
  • Scripts - macOS and Windows 10
  • Sensors – macOS and Windows 10
  • Internal Apps - iOS, Android, macOS, Windows 10

Deployment Templates

Deployment Templates provide the ability to deploy known configurations to new or existing Workspace ONE UEM environments. The templates are JSON files that have been built and exported from a UEM server. Templates are built to help quickly configure common scenarios for Workspace ONE UEM, specifically for a Proof of Concept (PoC) or any service provider that performs the same standard configurations for their customers.

Recap

Mike Nelson and I had an adventure exploring the various APIs when developing this Fling. I hope this example motivates you to get started with the EUC APIs to see what you can create and automate! Be sure to subscribe to the Digital Workspace Tech Zone Blog RSS or check back daily to see what we release. By the end of this month, we hope that you are comfortable leveraging code samples, VMware Flings, scripting/coding, and leveraging the EUC APIs to automate your workspace!
