Introducing VMware AirWatch SDK 18.5 for Android

The Workspace ONE Team is excited to announce that AirWatchSDK 18.5 for Android is publicly available.

What’s New in this Version

  • ASDK-169263: Added the ability to enforce token-based authentication.

Bugs Fixed in this Version

  • Added SDK security improvements.
  • ASDK-169296: Added a fix to correctly evaluate incorrect passcode attempts when a device is offline, and the admin changes the authentication mode from the console.

Known Issues in this Version

  • ASDK-169387: When token-based authentication is enforced, and the authentication mode is set to passcode, the user is prompted for credentials instead of a token (note: this only happens during the first log-in attempt after passcode mode is enabled).
  • ASDK-169487: Observed an issue where users were intermittently asked to create a new passcode after already creating one in an existing SDK app. This happened in situations where one app used SDK version 18.2.2+ and another app was on version 18.2.1 or below.
