REST Admin API access must be enabled in the AirWatch admin console to integrate VMware Identity Manager with AirWatch. When you enable Admin API access, an API key is generated.

1

In the AirWatch admin console, select the Global > Customer-level organization group and navigate to Groups & Settings > All Settings > System > Advanced > API > Rest API.

2

In the General tab, click Add to generate the API key to use in the VMware Identity Manager service. The account type should be Admin.

Add a description, such as admin API key for VMware Identity Manager.

3

Copy the API key and save it to a file.

You add this key when you set up AirWatch in the VMware Identity Manager admin console.

In the AirWatch admin console, add an Enrolled User Rest API key and create an admin account and export the admin client certificate.
