AAPP-3888: Managed apps unable to use “Open in” workflow on iOS

Version Identified

AirWatch 9.1.4




When using a managed application and selecting the option to “Open in”, the user is unable to open the desired file into other managed destinations.

This behavior is only observed if the restriction to "Allow documents from unmanaged sources to managed destinations" is disabled as shown below, and is also only seen on devices running iOS 11.



To resolve this issue, admins must ensure that the checkbox shown below is checked on any iOS profiles applied to devices.
