Let’s Git Commit(ted) to </Dev> Resources: Getting Started with the VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs

February 04, 2022

Welcome to Day 4 of Let’s Git Commit(ted) to </Dev> Resources! Today’s topic will cover how to get started with the VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs to flexibly query data from your environment.

What is VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence?

VMware Workspace ONE Intelligence is designed to simplify the end-user experience without compromising security. The Intelligence platform aggregates and correlates data from multiple sources to give complete visibility into your environment. This data can be analyzed and leveraged to take retroactive action or to provide automatic remediation, such as detecting when a device battery is starting to degrade in time to order a replacement.

In short, Workspace ONE Intelligence is all about gathering useful data into a single service to help you make informed decisions.

What can I do with the Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs?

The Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs are focused on querying and extracting data from the Workspace ONE Intelligence platform by leveraging the flexible Reports system. This is useful if you need to retrieve and combine your Workspace ONE Intelligence data with external sources. Rather than having your administrators manually run and download reports, the process can be fully automated!

Another highlight of the Workspace ONE Intelligence Reports is that you can build reports with the specific data columns you need. If you have followed some of our other API guides, you might have seen most APIs return a static data schema that is unmalleable. For example, if you request a list of devices from Workspace ONE UEM using the APIs, you retrieve all of the device details in the response. This is normally great, but if you are only interested in just a property or two from that data set, it can add additional work after retrieving the data to organize it to your needs. Workspace ONE Intelligence provides flexibility here with the Reports process, which makes it a powerful component in querying data in your environment.

If you are interested in seeing the Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs in action, then look no further than the Getting Started with the Workspace ONE Intelligence APIs operational tutorial by our very own Andreano Lanusse. Andreano’s guide takes you from getting started with Workspace ONE Intelligence, to satisfying the prerequisites, and to walking through how to create, run, monitor, and download a report with the APIs.

Conclusion

Workspace ONE Intelligence provides actionable insights into your environment, and the APIs allow you to automate querying and extracting data from the platform to cover a variety of use cases. Check out Andreano’s operational tutorial for a full walkthrough!
